Learn how to set up your DataHawk account. You'll be up and running in a jiffy!

Setting up DataHawk can take less than 5 minutes. In this section, you'll learn about how DataHawk works, how to get started, and best practices for an optimal setup.

Start by learning more about the key components of setting up your account, then move to the Sources page.


The first step towards using DataHawk is to add data sources. Adding a data source enables the automation of its daily data collection and unlocks access to a set of tools, reports, metrics, and insights.



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.



The most successful organizations add multiple sources and gain a unified view and understanding of their business and how various areas are correlated.


Tags are labels that serve as an additional way to help with segmenting and filtering through products and keywords.

Assign default or custom tags to products and keywords to gain productivity and have an additional layer of segmentation.


Destinations are third-party tools you can integrate with DataHawk, allowing you to sync data to them in a fully automated and continuous way. They notably include a database on a cloud warehouse, Excel, Google Sheets, and BI solutions such as Power BI, Google Data Studio, and dozens of other apps.



You can build advanced reporting and tools by leveraging DataHawk as a data source. Destinations can be a great way to unlock very advanced use cases and custom dashboarding tailored to your organization's needs. If you're unable to do it on a DIY approach, our team can help either for free or with a small implementation fee.


Alerts are notifications you can manually set up to automate the detection of daily changes in specific data points.

Set up alerts to stay notified about potential performance issues, allowing you to protect your brand and market share. Alerts are also a great way to keep a tab on what your competitors are doing and which could negatively impact your performance.


Members are other users you can invite to your workspace. You can similarly be invited to other workspaces.

The most successful organizations have a minimum of 2 or 3 members using DataHawk. Invite your colleagues to the platform so you can better collaborate and work as a team, breaking silos and accelerating time-to-insights.


Workspaces are dedicated work environments comprised of one or multiple members, and specific sources, tags, destinations, and so forth. Instead of creating multiple accounts with various email addresses, you can create multiple workspaces with the same login and seamlessly switch from one workspace to another.

If you own multiple brands or are an agency and prefer having siloed access to data, or you simply need a more advanced way of organizing your workflows, having multiple workspaces is a great way to keep things well-separated, particularly when you want specific people to access certain workspaces.
