Why a Data Source is necessary

A Data Source is to Reeport what electricity is to Tesla. Make sure to add at least one Data Source to your Reeport account in order to fetch data (e.g., from Google Analytics, AT Internet, Weborama, a CSV file, etc) and thus create Reports.

 

Your data is safe

Note that we do not host your data unless you specifically to choose to manually upload a CSV file to your Reeport account. Besides keeping your data where it is, it means that you can slice and dice your data using Reeport without worrying about altering its source!

What's the difference between a Connector and a Data Source?

While a Data Source is the location from which Reeport will be fetching your data, a Connector is simply the link (oftentimes API-based) which makes the fetching process possible.
