  1. Please Add "Change Data Source"

    You Need to add a feature that should be really easy to implement.

    Please Add "Change Data Source" to the "edit Klip"

    So lets say I create a Klip Dashboard and I want to copy it and change the data source but keep everything else about that Klip the same.

    (This is really beautiful for my company where I can upload the same formatting of different customers' data and the Klip I created finds how and where to input it to the same fields I made)

    So the only way I know how to currently do what i want to…

    Thank you for your idea and all the votes. Great to have all your support behind improving Klipfolio.

    Will look into this idea.

  2. Allow for custom OAuth connector destinations

    Many internet sources (such as Sharepoint) are capable of using OAuth tokens, can it be made that the user can set a custom OAuth destination as it is currently limited to a select few sources?

  4. Allow connection with Bing Ads as a datasource.

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

  5. Provide list of Klips that use a data source

    A Klip shows you what data source(s) it uses but not the other way around. Sometimes I'd like to change a data source but I need to know what Klips it might impact.

  6. Datasource usage

    In the datasource details, show which klips currently use this source.

    This can be achieved now using the API (currently in beta). We are looking into exposing it in the UI in a future release.

  7. Shared Connections for Data Sources

    Currently connection details (host, port, username, password, url, etc) must be reentered for each datasource. Ideally we would be able to configure a connection once and then reference the connection in multiple data sources.

    While not exactly as requested, there is now an option to duplicate a data source. When creating new data sources, the connection details will already be in the duplicated data source.

    This should help when creating multiple data sources that need the same configuration info.

  8. Append Data Sent Via Email

    I want to be able to send data to you via email and have it parsed out and appended to similar data that was already sent.

  9. Zero/empty Values

    I would like a solution to substitute "no value" in a series. Example: You did some Google campaigns (CPC) in FEB-MARCH, but not in JAN & APR . Google API's from Analytics will show you all sources (Direct, referrering sites, Organic searc, paid search,...) ...but will not show a CPC source for JAN & APR...which wil screw up your bar charts. The workaround is complex (create a new source table with if/then to substitiute empty values with zero's)

  10. 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…

  11. Save datasource credentials (MySQL, Google Analytics ID, etc) as a token

    I have to input my credentials (MySQL: database, username, password etc. Google Analytics: ID) again and again for every datasource I create. If these credentials would be saved in tokens that would be great. I would prefer it if they would be selectable and updatable, if the username changes for example. Keep up the great work! Mark

    While not exactly how you described it, we have introduced the ability to duplicate a data source. The duplicated data source will contain the configuration information of the original and simplify updating it to reflect your new query.

    We’ll still keep an eye on improving this.

  12. Would like the ability to duplicate datacources

    We often want to reuse the core bits of an existing datasource. Would be handy if there were an option to duplicate a datasource in the same way that Klips can be duplicated.

  14. 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.

  15. SSL Support for Postgres

    Direct SQL connections currently support SSH tunneling but it doesn't support basic SSL connections.

    Add support for SSL mode

  16. suggestion to suppress headers from data source

    many data sources give you a header row that you have to suppress using the SLICE function; this becomes very annoying and error sensitive after a while; please provide a standard switch in each data tab of the klip to be able to skip the first line when selecting a column; for known data sources like GA this switch should be ON by default (from now on) the switch may look like the switch on JSON data sources that let you choose for Simple or Xpath;

  17. Create a single view of multiple data sources

    It would be awesome if we could create a single view of multiple related data sources. This way, we could create the view once and then be able to repeat its use as a single data source rather than having to use multiple data sources and lookup formulas in klips each time you want to relate the data.

    Great idea. We are exploring a way to do something like this. Keep watch for some updates as we focus on the Klip Editor in 2016.

  18. 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.

  19. Be able to decompress zip file data sources

    Currently KlipFolio cannot decompress data sources that are either uploaded, on a FTP or emailed into the platform in a .ZIP file format. With many reporting systems using zip file formats for compression (especially when sending via email) it is a vital feature to have.

  20. evaluate variables in parameters in data source

    Variables like startdate={date.add(-60)} do not work in the parameters of a Web Accessable Data Source , however they do work in the URL part (you would expect the oher way around).
