What are Data Sources?
The sources which generate data for your client are referred to as Data Source. There are numerous platforms which might be hosting your campaign but you need to allow TapClicks to pull the data and generate a report for your client. Managing Data Sources allows you to connect your data, map it to the relevant account and pull the data into the TapClicks platform. After initial configuration, all pre-configured Data Sources will be listed under the tab in the left pane.
View your Data Sources
To see what is listed under the Data Sources tab, click the button on the Quick Access Bar or click the Data Source tab in the left pane.
