Can I Use Multiple Accounts in the Same Data Source?

Yes! You can either create a new data source per account or you can edit your existing data source to add more accounts.



Adding a New Data Source

  1. In your report, click Resource->Manage added data sources in the top menu.
  2. Click ADD A DATA SOURCE.

    Blue arrow pointing to blue link to 'Add a data source'

  3. Under Parter Connectors (or in the search bar), look for the data source you want to add another account for. Hover over it and click SELECT.

  5. Go down to the option to select accounts/pages/profiles, based on which connector it is, and select the additional account(s) you want to use in the report.

    Blue arrow pointing to the drop-down to "select accounts"

  6. Give the data source a new meaningful name so its easy to tell it from the other sources for the same platform.

  7. Click RECONNECT to save the change to the data source, and then APPLY to confirm any configuration changes.
  8. Click DONE to go back to the report. Now any report elements that use that data source will include the other accounts selected!

WARNING - If you update an existing data source to add more accounts, ALL reports and report elements that reference the data source file will also update to include those accounts. If you do not want this, make sure to use the first option to create separate data source for each account.
