  1. On the Sources page, click on the Create Source button and select the connector from the list.

    Didn't find your authorizer?

    Click on Add new Account at the bottom of the drop-down and follow the on-screen prompts. You can also go to the Authorizers tab and click on Add New Service.

  4. Name your data source and select your metrics and attributes. Keep in mind that metrics and attributes depend on the selected dataset.
  5. Configure your sync frequency or the exact synchronization time under Show advanced settings.

    If you need to load historical data, please refer to the Data Backfilling article.

  6. Preview your data by clicking on the Test Data button in the top right corner. You can adjust the date range for a more specific time frame.
  7. Click on Save and congratulations, your new data source is ready!


Data Preview Unavailable

No data preview when you click on Test Data might be caused by an issue with your source configuration. The most common causes are:

  • Date range: Try a smaller date range. You can load the rest of your data afterward via manual data load.
  • Insufficient permissions: Please make sure your authorized account has at least admin-level permissions.

Authorization Issues with .be, .fr, .co.uk Accounts

By default, the Dataddo Exact Online connector is pointed to the .nl version. So in case you did not authorize the connection to Exact Online yet, you will be redirected to an authorizer requesting the .nl version.

If you have one of the .be, .fr, or .co.uk versions, please follow these steps:

  1. In your Exact Online, navigate to Settings.
  2. Go to the Connected Accounts section and select the correct national version of Exact Online.
  3. Continue with your data source creation in Dataddo.
