ShipHero
Data loss in Picks per day and Packs per day tables
We implemented a new retrieval strategy for the ShipHero connector. This strategy focuses on fetching the most recent data first. This means that Daton will prioritize getting the latest information from ShipHero, minimizing the risk of data being missed or lost.
This fix addresses two critical issues for Daton users:
  • Reduced data loss: By prioritizing the most recent data, Daton is less likely to miss or lose any vital information from ShipHero. This ensures that your reports and analyses are based on the most accurate and up-to-date data available.
  • Improved efficiency: Data retrieval from ShipHero is faster with the new retrieval strategy, making it more efficient. This translates to shorter loading times for reports and dashboards, allowing you to access your data and insights quickly.
Overall, this fix significantly improves the reliability and performance of the ShipHero connector in Daton. This benefits customers by providing them with accurate and up-to-date data and quicker retrieval times for data.
Rainforest
Issue 1: Confusion due to disorganized error codes and messages, impacting effective issue resolution.
We have reorganized and clarified the error codes and messages. This means they are now more precise and easier to understand.
By providing clear and specific error messages, customers can identify and resolve issues in the Rainforest connector much faster and more effectively.
This eliminates the need for guesswork and saves valuable time when troubleshooting.
Issue 2: Lack of proactive credential validation posed a security risk for unauthorized access.
We have implemented a new validation mechanism for the connector. This means that only authorized users with valid credentials can access the Rainforest data in Daton.
The new validation mechanism significantly improves security by ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data.
This reduces the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security threats.
Leadsquared
Users faced slow history replication in the Activities table, impacting data retrieval efficiency.
We have significantly improved the speed of history replication for the Activities table in the Leadsquared connector.
  • Faster and more efficient data retrieval: Leadsquared data will be available in Daton much quicker, improving overall data accessibility and usability.
  • Reduced waiting times: Reports, dashboards, and analyses that rely on Leadsquared data will load significantly faster, allowing users to work with up-to-date information with minimal delay.
  • Improved workflow efficiency: Faster data retrieval translates to smoother workflows and quicker decision-making for users working with Leadsquared data in Daton.
