How much data is stored?

Octoboard collects data from cloud applications using publicly available APIs. How much and how long data is stored depends on cloud applications that you connect to.

Applications provide data for Octoboard differently. Some offer a lot of data, others are more restrictive.

Google Analytics, for example, would offer a lot of historical data and Octoboard will query many months back.

Other applications such as Twitter or Youtube for example, would not return historical data for some parameters at all. For such applications, Octoboard will collect data every day and will build it up over time. The longer you use Octoboard, the more data you will see over time.

This is how Google Analytics widgets look from day one (note charts and graphs filled with data).

And here is Twitter Engagement metrics - they are not available initially and will be accumulated by Octoboard over time - see "OVERVIEW" graph as an example.

Over time you will get data collected and stored in the system. Just keep using Octoboard.

IMPORTANT: Not all platforms return historical data to Octoboard. Upgrading your Octoboard subscription will not change that. You will always depend on how much data cloud applications can provide to Octoboard via publicly available programmatic interfaces (APIs).
How much historical data is collected and stored will affect your ability to display data comparisons in tables, graphs and charts. To find out more, please read our Knowledge Base post on how to display and configure data comparison values in Octoboard.
Please note that data may not become available to Octoboard immediately as it depends on the cloud platform that you are connecting to. For information on how often data is refreshed and updated, please read our Knowledge Base post on Data update frequency in Octoboard.
