Why do Data Sources have different amounts of historical data initially available?
When you first connect a Data Source in Databox, we start collecting data from that Data Source's API. The amount of historical data that's available to sync with Databox differs for each Data Source, depending on factors like how much historical data is accessible through the Data Source's public API and any API limits that the Data Source may set to restrict how much data can be synced.
Date Ranges that are greyed out in the Date Range Picker are unavailable due to a lack of data for some or all of the Date Range.
Learn more about how data is synced, stored, and secured here.
What's the maximum amount of historical data initially available from each Data Source?
Below is a table outlining the maximum amount of historical data we can initially sync from each Data Source.
Please note that certain Metrics may have less historical data available. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How can I start syncing data for a Metric?
To start syncing data for a Metric (Basic, Calculated or Custom), the Metric must be used on either your Metrics screen, a Databoard, a Scorecard, a Goal, or an Alert.
Once the Metric is being used in your Account the maximum amount of historical data available from via the Data Source's API will be synced with Databox. Learn more about the limits for each Data Source here.
We'll continuously sync data for your active Metrics and will store this data in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time so that you can report on more data to the Metric in your Databox reports in the future.

How is more historical data generated over time?
Once your Data Sources are connected and its metrics used in your Databox account, the data is actively syncing and being stored 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 data in your Databox reports.
For example, let's say you connected your Stripe Account to Databox on June 1st. When you first use a Stripe Metric in your Databox account, we can collect 12 months worth of historical data. This means that initially, we can access data from June last year till June 1st this year in Databox. Date Ranges like Year to Date, This Quarter, Last Month, Last Week, etc. will populate with data on your Databoards. Date Ranges like Last Year, Custom Date Range Last 24 Months, etc. will populate with partial data or with no data on your Databoards.
Custom Date Ranges are available on the Professional and higher plans. Request a trial of by following these steps.
