Overview

Automatic Data Synchronization

This connector gives you the ability to sync your data automatically in hourly, daily, or total granularity.

Available Metrics and Dimensions

The Dataddo Snapchat connector supports many of the fields available in the official Measurement API. The full list of metrics is available here.

Multi-account Extraction

The Dataddo Snapchat connector supports automatic extraction from all the available Snapchat accounts. This feature is particularly useful when you have multiple accounts and need to automatically extract the same metrics and dimensions across them (e.g., online agencies).

Historical Data Load

Currently, it is possible to only access data 6 months into the past.

If you have not authorized your Account with Dataddo, click on Add new Account and you will be redirected to the authorization/sign-in page.

Also, you can see the full list of the metrics you selected by clicking on Show all Metrics and attributes, in the left navigation.

#### * 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, or their combination - you may not have any values for them.
