Missing metric or attribute?

If you feel like some metrics or attributes that you would like to use are missing, you can contact us or create a ticket and we will add it for you if possible.


Once you select a Dataset, you can start with the configuration by clicking on Next. First of all, you will need to give Dataddo authorization to connect with your Simplicate account. Once you click on Authorize, you will be redirected to your account to log in.

Authorizing SimplicateAfter you log in and give Dataddo the necessary permissions to access your data, you will get redirected back to the connector. If you happen to have more Simplicate accounts connected to Dataddo, you can select the one you would like to use from the drop-down menu.

The last step consists of selecting your snapshotting preferences. To help you with the snapshot mapping, we make it easier for you to create a connection based on your destination.

  • Click on the option "Dashboarding App" if you want your data to connect to applications, like Google Data Studio, Power BI, or Tableau.
  • Click on the option "Data Warehouse", If you want your data to be sent to warehouse storage, like MySQL, Big Query, or PostgreSQL.
  • If you are already experienced with the snapshotting setup, you can go ahead and process without selecting any of the two options.

Selecting Snapshot

You can check whether the suggested setting suits you, or you can make amends and configure your snapshotting preferences, choosing Snapshotting frequency, and Snapshotting retention yourself.

Now you are all set and ready. Click on See Preview to review all the selections made by you before saving the Data Source using the buttons in the top right corner - either Save and Exit or Save & Create Flow. To create a flow, please follow our Creating a data flow guide.
