Broken View / Error Message
If you cannot see a preview of your data, go back a few steps and check your setup. The most common causes are:
- Date range: We recommend a smaller date range. If you need to load historical data, check our guide.
- Invalid metrics, attributes, or breakdowns: You may not have any data for the selected metrics, attributes, or breakdowns.
- Combination of metrics, attributes, or breakdowns: The combination you have selected cannot be queried together. Please refer to the service's documentation to view a full list of which metrics can be included in the same source.
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.
In case you have BE, FR, or UK version of Exact Online, navigate to Settings -> Connected Accounts and select the correct national version of Exact Online. Then proceed to the Exact Online connector in the Dataddo app.
