    Thanks for your idea.

    Can you add some additional context? What kind of data sources? Are you referring to changing OAuth tokens? Or something else?

    Thanks,

    Scott.

  3. Sorting data sources by Date added instead of Last refresh

    Currently there is no option to sort your datasources to find the newest. So if your new datasources collide with the refreshing of existing ones they can be hard to find.

  4. Link to Klips used by a data source

    Similar to the way that you can see what data sources are being used in a klip, I think it would be very useful to see which klips a data source is being used it, visible from the data source. This way in case something changes in a data source, you know what klips it is going to affect.

    Plus as use of klipfolio grows, the more data sources are created and the more data sources are replaced and deprecated. It would be helpful to be able to go through and see which ones can be deleted without breaking something.

  5. Creation of data source connnection

    It would be better if we create data source connections for databases and use same connection , instead of providing again all the deatils of the database.

  6. Add the Google Analytics Real Time Reporting API

    Having live visitors and live events from analytics would be great. There is an api for this : https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/realtime/v3/authorization

    The Google Analytics Realtime API is still a Limited Beta and has some significant API call limits associated with it – often resulting in disabled data sources as Google restricts the number of calls.

    When this API is released in production with the limits adjusted accordingly, we will revisit supporting a connection to this API.

  7. Let developers provide connectors for free (or not)

    I'd like to add may sources from affiliate networks like tradedoubler, publiidees, cj.com to fetch only the cost. If someone does do it it would be nice to let the guy share or integrate the module in klipfolio. And of course give the guy something in return. (an extra user for example)

  8. Add support for FTP over SSL (FTPS)

    Microsoft IIS FTP servers implement FTP over SSL, typically served on port 990. Klipfolio only seems to support unencrypted FTP or Secure FTP (SSH) based file transfers.

    Please add support for FTP over SSL so all your customers can enjoy secure file transfers regardless of what server technology they employ.

  9. Allow grouping of data sources

    It would be awesome if it was possible to group data sources. I have hundreds and it's a bit annoying having to search for specific ones. Being able to sort it by grouping would help a lot.

    Thank you for the input and the idea!

    We have been looking into the possibility of enabling a folder structure or tagging mechanism to help with organizing all assets in Klipfolio – data sources, Klips, tabs, and such.

    From the description, I believe this would meet your needs. Does that resonate with you?

    Cheers,

    Scott.

  10. add Clicky webstats connection

    very powerfuly webstats. Acces for sites and for pages would be very hlepful. They have a great API

  11. Data Source XMLA access Mondrian

    I try to acess my Pentaho server hosted in Amazon AWS using Mondrian XMLA. It don´t run because Klipfolio acess XMLA via HTTP Get but Mondrian XMLA accept only HTTP Post.

  12. Datasource Refresh Timing (or lack thereof)

    The current method of doing refreshes just doesn't seem to be working in an acceptable way for our clients that don't keep Klipfolio open all day.

    Currently, when you haven't logged in to Klipfolio for a while, when you first login, all of your data sources are out of date. Historically, these would refresh very quickly and you'd see the Klips flash and have an updated dashboard within a minute or two, but now these updates seem to take much longer. Sometimes it can take several hours for the data sources to refresh on a dashboard.

    This timing isn't acceptable…

  13. Duration and time-of-day specification for datasource refreshes

    It would be really useful to be able to specify both the duration (every 2 hours) and time-of-day (12h00) for refreshing a data source. This would limit the number of 'hits' to a database over a specified time frame.

  14. Provide "Refresh Now" option on datasource list page

    Sometimes, I know I need to manually update a datasource in my list. I don't really need to click all the way into it, nothing needs to be changed, I just need to click the "refresh now" link.

    It would be great if I could do this directly from the datasource list, as opposed to inside the datasource itself.

  15. Data source update, additional choices - weekly, monthly Xth day of month, etc.

    I have some data sources that don't need to be updated daily, monthly would work - and if it could be scheduled as a recurring update on the Xth day of the month (3rd, for example), that would be perfect.

    I'd love to use the SQL SSH connection with a keyfile as opposed to password only

  17. Use Smartsheet as a pre-configured datasource

    Wouldn't it be so much simpler if I could connect quickly to Smartsheet, rather than having to spend hours creating the link through the API settings! Can this be considered?

  18. Data sources - update frequency

    Some of the data sources I access have restrictions on the number of connections that can be made within 24hrs, which means I can't update Klips using these sources as frequently as I would like.

    I would like to be able to setup frequent updates for a limited time period during the day ie. working hours. There is no need for any updates out of working hours. This would give me frequent data updates without breaching any restrictions. We would need to be able to set the time zone for this - I'm in the UK!

  19. Allow connection with Bing Ads as a datasource.

    We need to also track our performance and investment made into Bing, not only AdWords.

  20. Access to annotations data

    The ability to directly access the annotation database and use this as a source to generate additional Klips.

    Ideally would be able to generate Klips with:

    - date annotation made
    - Klip name/id
    - name of contributor
    - annotation text
    - control variables active when the annotation was made
