With Dealfront's Google Looker Studio connector (formerly Google Data Studio or 'GDS') you can visualise Dealfront's data easily. You can read more about the reporting options here.
You can already create an API key, you will need it later on when setting up the connectors (more information on STEP 4).
You can trial Dealfront's Looker Studio connector add-on for free for 14 days.
Please Note: While the company rebrand is underway you may see the names 'Dealfront' and 'Leadfeeder' used interchangeably.
Here's how to get started:
STEP 1: Navigate to your Account Settings > Integrations > Overview. Select Looker Studio.
STEP 2: The Looker Studio connector view will instruct you to access your trial for the connector, in case you already didn't have it.
When you've set up the requirements, you can click on Set up connection.
NOTE: Alternatively search for the Dealfront connector from the Looker Studio gallery and click Create Data Source or just use this link.
STEP 3: When accessing the connector, first click on Authorize to follow Google's authentication flow.
STEP 4: In the next step you are required to fill in your Dealfront API key.
The API key can be found in your Dealfront personal settings by accessing https://app.dealfront.com/l/settings/personal/api-tokens while logged in to Dealfront. Copy the API key there and click on Submit.
STEP 5: Now you finally get to choose which data to include.
Under Dealfront website select the account you want to access. The websites (aka Dealfront accounts) are the ones that your Dealfront user has access to via the API key.
Custom feed id: this is optional but highly recommended. By having the custom feed the captures only relevant companies to your criteria, you have already more targeted data set to play with in Looker Studio's end. Click on Edit on your custom feed to get access to the feed's id on the bottom of the edit view. Here are more instructions how to find custom feed's id.

Also, when having issues, please check you have logged in with correct user account to Looker Studio.
STEP 6: After filling the 3 parameters, click on Connect. You'll be taken to a view where the connector's parameters are shown. Click on Create report on that stage to be able to plug the report on a new report.
NOTE: After you've added a connector to a new report, it'll be also available in your Data Source in whatever Looker Studio report you have edit rights.
STEP 7: Start creating the report. In case you confront errors, please make sure you completed steps 1 and 2 of this article to enable the Connector add-on for your Dealfront.
NOTE: If you get an error "Unknown data source", please click Edit data source, then Edit connection and reconnect it. You can read more about this on Google's support thread here.
