Guide: Using Copper with Databox


How to connect Copper to Databox


How to connect Copper to Databox

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

This will open the  Activation window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Copper login and API Key.

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

When you connect a new Copper Data Source in Databox, no historical data is initially synced. 

Pro Tip: Once your Copper 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 Copper data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

What time zone does Copper data sync in? 

Copper data is synced in UTC. 

How to access pre-built Copper Templates

  1. Navigate to Databoards > Public Templates
  2. In the Data Source drop-down list, select  Copper
  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 Copper data, click Use Template
  5. Select the appropriate Copper Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Copper 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.
