    If you want to connect a new account that is not on the list, click on Add new Account at the bottom of the drop-down. You will be redirected to the authorization/sign-in page to confirm the right account. Once you confirm, you will be redirected back to the Dataddo app.

  7. Click on Save and congratulations, your new data source is ready!


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.

Connect a Sandbox Account

To connect a sandbox account, add an authorizer called Saleforce (custom domain) and set the domain to be the sandbox domain.

For example, if your sandbox domain is


then the domain you need to use in Dataddo would be dataddo--partial.sandbox.
