Intro

Percolate's complete web and mobile marketing software increases productivity, elevates your brand, and helps you generate more sales. Use Domo's Percolate connector to retrieve analytics data, partner information, posts by brand or license, and more. To learn more about the Percolate API, visit their page (https://percolate.com/docs/api/).

You connect to your Percolate account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Percolate 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.
