Describe the term API, and how API usage differs from using the standard user interface.
API is an abbreviation for application programming interface. APIs allow external programs to interact with Salesforce data. Common examples of API usage include the Data Loader, integrations, and desktop applications such as Salesforce for Outlook.
API usage can be monitored in company information, and is limited within a 24-hour period (whereas standard website usage is not limited). API usage limits depend on which edition of Salesforce you are using and how many user licenses you have.
