DashThis updates data almost everyday to make sure when you open your dashboards, you always have the most up-to-date results.
DashThis purpose is to help digital marketers to report on past data and give insights on previous performance. In that sense, DashThis doesn't report on real-time data.
However, we make sure that your data is always up-to-date when it comes to consulting your previous periods or even the current period.
Depending on the integrations and their structure, DashThis has two main ways of updating your data:
- On one hand, a daily import is made every night (EST).
For those integrations, your data is updated once a day by fetching it through the integration of external APIs. Depending on the quantity of data and the external API performance, this process can last from several minutes to several hours.
- On the other hand, an on-demand update is made when a dashboard is opened.
For those integrations, when you open a dashboard and new data is available for the most recent periods, the widgets will go fetch it through the integration of external APIs. This process usually takes only seconds.
At all times, you can manually refresh your widgets' data by clicking on "Refresh data" under the Widget menu. (excluding Twitter due to an API limitation with historic data)
