A data source is any service with which Geckoboard integrates. To create visualizations powered by data from these services, Geckoboard must form a connection.

Only Account owners and Admins can add new data source connections.

  1. In the top right of your dashboard, click Add widget.

  2. Use the Search sources field to find your data source. You can also scroll through the alphabetical list and click on your chosen data source.
