Why am I seeing this warning?
We integrate dozens of Apps via their APIs, but these services are constantly evolving – just like our own. New versions are added and old ones are deprecated. Usually, no action is required as we closely follow these developments to ensure a seamless migration. Unfortunately, this isn't always possible. When major changes to these services are introduced we're sometimes forced to stop supporting an integration.
What's an API?
It's a set of functions and procedures that allow the creation of applications which access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service.
We try our utmost to keep unsupported widgets operational for their existing users, but if you ever see the alert on your widget's setup page, we encourage you to check our list of supported integrations and find out whether a new version is available to you.
What are my options?
If your widget's integration is listed
There will be a new integration for it. Often, this has been done in order to allow for improvements. New integrations are made available to customers automatically. When you add a new widget, it will use the most recent version of its integration. Widgets created earlier however could stop working (for example, if they are using a deprecated version of an API) so we suggest that you replace it with a new one. In other words, we recommend adding and configuring a new widget like the one displaying the alert from scratch and finally removing the one with the warning message.
If your widget's integration isn't listed
Unfortunately, your widget's integration is no longer available.
Depending on the type and scope of changes to the service's API, we're sometimes able to adapt to meet the changes, thereby creating an entirely new integration. Other times, unfortunately, adapting is out of our control (i.e. when limitations that aren't compatible with Geckoboard are introduced).
Suggested next steps
Depending on the data source, you may be able to find a third party plugin for Google Sheets (e.g Supermetrics) or roll your own solution using our Datasets API.
