Without going into the details of the API, do you think a kind of Customer Support portal could be built into LC?

I knew nothing about Zoom until a few weeks ago, but everything I've read since is impressive.

And as both technologists and citizens, in addition to what Zoom is, also valuable is what they're not: not Google Hangouts, not Apple FaceTime, not Microsoft Teams, etc.  A startup this successful outside the Big Five is helpful for everyone, and devs in particular. Developers thrive in diverse and fluid ecosystems.

And did you notice Zoom's API docs?

I've only started reading them, but the functionality seems like a very empowering compliment to LC's GUI capabilities, esp. for integrating with other services an organization may need.
