The first step towards using DataHawk is to add data Sources. Adding a data Source enables the automation of its data collection and unlocks access to a set of tools, metrics, and insights.
Types of Sources
With Sources, users have complete control and can choose the data source to connect to their favorite Destination. This, combined with the capability to get automated reports on Google Sheets and customizable dashboards within Sheets or BI tools, allow users to have full autonomy on the visualized data.

🚧 Note: After you add a source, it can take up to 24 hours for its data to sync and become available. Data will start being automatically collected and stored on a moving-forward basis, while historical data may be accessible depending on the data source.
On the bottom-left side of the screen, the left navigation panel has a Quick Actions icon where, as you point your mouse over it, you'll be able to access helpful shortcuts to perform multiple actions, including adding a product or keyword, creating an alert, or inviting a member.
📘 Tip: The Quick Actions are helpful to easily access shortcuts that will allow you to perform multiple actions wherever you are in the web application.
When navigating the products and keywords lists in a given project, or a project's dashboard, you'll be able to access a Project actions button on the upper-right side of the screen, allowing you to add products or keywords or set up an alert.
You can also use our API to create or delete projects and to add or archive products and keywords.
If you are looking for a programmatic way to extract data, our Connections solution allows you to do that more easily than using an API, as the data is automatically updated in a database you can query in a turnkey fashion.
Search and Filtering
When navigating projects, products, and keywords, you have the ability to enter text in the search box to find what you're looking for in a quicker way. You can also use the Filters functionality to show only the items corresponding to your filters.
Furthermore, you can search through your entire workspace to find products, keywords, projects, reports, or even specific features and tools by using the workspace-wide search functionality. To access it, click on the magnifier icon you'll usually find on the upper-left or upper-right side of the screen, wherever you are in the web application.
📘 Tip: Use CTRL+P or CMD+P to access the workspace-wide search functionality, then look for any product, keyword, project, report, or even specific features and tools.
