Add Custom Fields as Parameter options for External Web Pages
I'd like to pull in an External Web Page that requires parameters that are not currently available by default.
For me to get these parameter values into Nimble, I would need to import them into Custom Fields with each Account and/or Contact.
If I was able to do this, I could pull in the order history for all my existing customers, into Nimble. As well as Add order history links into Contacts who order in the future.
This is only one example of how this could be used, and the idea provides a simple yet effective way to connect other web pages that are not social oriented.

-"At this time, we don’t have plans to add new fields to be available via external web pages until we do an overhaul of our API. These changes won’t likely occur until the second half of 2015 if they happen next year."
If it will happen by then, this would have been in the pipeline for over two years. Being a developer, I can't really understand why this is so hard. It really prohibits using Nimble with other Marketing Automation systems other than Hubspot.

Oh heck yes...
This would also allow integration of sorts with various other tools like zendesk, as you could use zapier, etc... to push the zendesk id for things like tickets, customer/user, etc... into custom fields and make direct click throughs available while you sort out more thorough integrations.
