Guide: Using Campaign Monitor with Databox


How to connect Campaign Monitor to Databox


How to connect Campaign Monitor to Databox

To connect a Campaign Monitor Account in Databox, go to Data Sources > + New connection. Type Campaign Monitor in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

This will open the Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Campaign Monitor login information and authorize the Databox app. 

How much historical data is synced when you first connect Campaign Monitor to Databox?

When you connect a new Campaign Monitor Data Source in Databox, no historical data is initially available. 

Pro Tip: Once your Campaign Monitor Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Campaign Monitor data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Campaign Monitor data sync in? 

Campaign Monitor data is synced in UTC.

How to access pre-built Campaign Monitor Templates

  1. Navigate to the Databoards > Public Templates.
  2. In the Data Source drop-down list, select Campaign Monitor.
  3. To view a preview of the Template populated with dummy data, click Preview.
  4. To pull the Template into your Account and re-populate it with your own Campaign Monitor data, click Use Template.
  5. Select the appropriate Campaign Monitor Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Campaign Monitor Account and can be found on the  Databoards page.

Pro Tip: Once the Databoard is available on the Databoards page, it is completely disconnected from the public Template. Therefore, you can further customize this Databoard to meet your specific needs using the Designer.
