Automatic Data Synchronization
The Dataddo Google Analytics 4 connector gives you the ability to sync your data automatically in hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly increments.
The Dataddo Google Analytics 4 connector supports automatic extraction from all available Google Analytics 4 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. agencies).
To enable multi-account extraction, contact us.
If you are planning to use our multi-account extraction feature to extract data from multiple Google Analytics 4 accounts, you must have the Include property ID option turned ON, to be able to identify which records belong to each account when doing your data analysis.
You can load data only 1 year back of historical data.
No Data / Allow Empty
If you have no data in your source, it may lead to a broken source and further issues with synchronization. When checking the Allow Empty box in the source's settings, you will be able to send "empty" data.
Check which metrics and dimensions will work together and vice versa on the official website.

Broken View / Error Message

- Invalid metrics, attributes or breakdowns, or their combination - you may not have any values for them, or their combination is not working. Check which metrics and dimensions work together the official website.
