Connect to a data source

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 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.Connect data from your everyday tools
  3. From the preset panel, select the widget type you'd like to create.
  4. You'll then be asked to create a connection and authenticate, so that we're able to collect your data and display it on the dashboard.Example connection panel
  5. Click on the Connect button.
  6. Once the connection is added you can begin configuring your widget.
