SocialFlow Connector

Intro

SocialFlow collects data about social media activity to help companies know when it is best to post their content for maximum effect. Use Domo's SocialFlow connector to retrieve data about SocialFlow accounts, content, and notifications. To learn more about the SocialFlow API, visit their Github page (https://github.com/SocialFlowDev/soc...ow-api-example).

You connect to your SocialFlow account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the SocialFlow connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your SocialFlow account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The email address associated with your SocialFlow account

  • Your SocialFlow password

Alternatively, you can sign in with Google credentials.

Connecting to Your SocialFlow Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the SocialFlow Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

The Domo SocialFlow connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing SocialFlow accounts in Domo) to open the SocialFlow OAuth screen where you can enter your SocialFlow or Google credentials. Once you have entered valid credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new SocialFlow DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Note: If you are already logged into SocialFlow when you connect in Domo, you are authenticated automatically when you click Add account. If you want to connect to an account that is different from the one you are logged into, you must first log out of SocialFlow.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
