What's the maximum amount of historical data initially available when you use a new Appfigures Data Source Metric in Databox?

Data is synced for the Metrics that are being used in your Account, so when you first use a new Appfigures Metric, the maximum amount of historical data available is 36 months. 

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For example, metrics that represent the total metric value (i.e. Estimated Revenue, Estimated Downloads, etc.) do not have historical data available when first used. We only pull in the total current value, but we will accumulate historical data for these Metrics in Databox over time and the metric value will be shown cumulatively.  

For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric please contact our Support Team at help@databox.com.

Pro Tip: In order to start syncing data for a Metric, you can add it to your Metrics screen, use it in a Scorecard, set a Goal around it, create an Alert for it, or add it to a Databoard. Learn more here.    
    The amount of historical data you're able to access in Databox is dependent on your Databox plan. Learn more here

What time zone does Appfigures data sync in? 

Appfigures data is synced in EST.

Metric Considerations

  • Estimated Revenue and Estimated Downloads metrics are available only with Appfigures Grow and Explore paid plans. Learn more here.
  • Estimated Revenue and Estimated Downloads metrics do not have historical data available. Learn more here.
  • Ads, Ad Spend, and Estimates metrics are not available for Windows Store, Amazon Store, and Stream integrations
  • Subscription metrics are not available for Steam integration

Granularity Restrictions

  • Due to API limitations, Hourly and Quarterly granularities are not supported. This may affect visualization options for Charts in Databox.

    For example, if an Appfigures Metric is used on a Line or Bar Chart with ''Yesterday'' Date Range selected, hourly data won't be displayed on the Chart.
    However, the big number above the Chart will accurately reflect the Metric value for the selected Date Range.
