Import data from API

I am a complete novice at this task, so grateful for any suggestions.

For a research project, we collect data in the field using CommCare. Data are collected as "forms" and synced to the CommCare server. To date, we have been downloading data from CommCareHQ when required, and importing into R for analysis. But I am wondering if there is a more efficient way of doing this using the CommCare data API?

I think this is the correct page with instructions for accessing form data:

So far, I have tried the following:


username <- "my_username"
password <- "my_password"

call <- ""

get_data <- GET(call, authenticate(username, password))

...but now completely stuck about what to do next. Very grateful for suggestions.
