FAQs + Tips and Tricks
If I have multiple accounts for a single data source, how do I connect to them in Grow?
If you already have an account connected to Grow, you may follow the same process as mentioned above to connect a second account. First, however, please be sure to log out of the first account if you are using it in another window and clear your browser's cache; otherwise, Grow may try to connect to the first account again. Alternatively, we recommend logging into Grow in an incognito window to connect the second account.
Each data source requires different information to connect
The most common connection information you will need are your username/password or API key for a data source. Grow always connects in read-only mode, so your data is safe and secure.
If you need help connecting a specific data source, check out the Connecting Your Data section of our help center. Here, you will find articles for our data sources on how to connect and other information you'll need to know.
These articles are constantly being updated and new articles added. Please let us know if you see any changes that need to be made to the connection instructions for a specific data source. We try to keep up with changes on our own, but we don't always catch API updates as they happen.
When you enter your password or sign in, you are signing into that service in order to authorize Grow. We never store your password—it is safe and secure.
Preventing Duplicate Authentications
Grow has added a stability measure to prevent you from creating duplicate authentications on the same data source, which can sometimes produce unexpected results. When you create a new connection to a data source, Grow looks to see if you already have an account with those credentials associated with your unique Grow user account. If the credentials match, Grow will use the existing connection instead of creating a duplicate authentication. You will be directed to the existing connection so you can proceed as normal.
