  • June 2014: Marketplace Connectors and Dashboard Widgets
  • Connectors are a quick and direct method to leverage the Crownpeak Marketplace. Connectors can be found in the Settings Configuration page
  • As an example we'll configure 2 popular connectors: Google Analytics and Facebook Insights, which can power related dashboard widgets
  • Start by adding a new Google Analytics Connector.
  • Select the Google Analytics icon. Follow the steps to authenticate and store your settings.
  • The connector cannot edited or renamed at this point. After saving, the new connector will be displayed in the list
  • Next let's add the Facebook Insights Connector.
  • Select the Facebook Connector icon. Follow the steps to authenticate and store your settings.
  • The new connector will be displayed in the list
  • Let's go back to the dashboard, create widgets, and see the data.
  • Let's create a new dashboard to add our widgets.
  • First let's add the Google Analytics widget.
  • And then a Demandbase widget. Note that DemandBase attaches data to Google Analytics, so we can re-use that connector and account.
  • Next let's add the Facebook insights widget.
  • In the Google Analytics widget, observe page view and visits and hover over a point to view details
  • In the Demandbase widget, you can select the time period to view, in this case last year
  • The facebook widget shows an overview of reach and social activity
  • Save your new dashboard for future use
