Adding External Data Sources (updated)

A guide on connecting all the data sources you need for branded content within your account.


When do I connect my data sources? 

As soon as you get access to your Pressboard account! It's a key step outlined in our Self Start Onboarding process. Only after you finalise connections to the external platforms you rely most on for branded content will you be able to get rolling with syncing data in Pressboard and campaign reporting.  

Which external data sources does Pressboard support?

Refer to What We Measure for more information about the Data Sources we currently support.

Where can I find Data Sources? 

Navigate to your user profile (top-right), go to 'Settings' from the drop-down menu and click on the 'Data Sources' tab in the panel that opens.

What do I need to add a Data Source?

You must have an appropriate level of permissions and credentials for each external platform (usually a log in). To access the Data Sources panel in Settings, you must have the the ‘Admin’ user role in your Pressboard account.

Do all connections require logins?

With the exception of a few, including, Polar Media Voice, Responsive Ads, SeenThis and Spaceback, a log in is required to finalise connections. You will be prompted with a message to "contact your customer support representative" in cases where any backend setup in needed to receive data.
