The purpose of this step is only to establish authentication and ensure Improvado can extract the data. NO DATA is extracted until the user goes through the next step; selecting the data to extract.
Also, any configuration made will affect the whole team. For example, if you connect Google Ads, other team members won't have to re-connect it again. Some platforms require specific details or credentials to connect with third-party software (e.g., secret key, API key, etc.). You’ll find details concerning what you need after selecting the data source like so:
How to connect your data sources
- Click on Data sources located on the right navigation menu.
- Select the platform you'd like to connect to Improvado. You can use the 'Categories' menu on the side to filter data sources.
- Enter any required connection details and click Authorize.
What happens behind the scene
Improvado will get the list of accounts for the connected data sources to extract data when requested. The process can take up to 24 hours, depending on the data source or platform. You can check the status of your data sources on the ‘Connections’ page: https://report.improvado.io/connections/
