That’s because our marketing team is trying its hand at product development today, working with our engineers to build and ship tons of new pre-configured Datablocks for some of our most popular integrations.
We’re calling it (drumroll) Datablock Building Day.
We’re adding significantly more pre-configured Datablocks for Quickbooks, Shopify, LinkedIn Ads, Wistia, Drift, Google Play, App Store Connect, CallRail, and Bing Ads.
(For those of you visiting us for the first time, you might be wondering what a ‘Datablock’ is. Here it is explained in 1 minute.)
We’ve seen a direct correlation between shipping new Datablocks and increased product usage. Any time we make it easier for people to track and visualize their most important metrics, they connect more data, build more dashboards, and most importantly, uncover important insights quicker.
And while our product team ships new metrics and Datablocks frequently, they also have a full roadmap of other products and features they’re working on. Marketing wanted to help, and engineering helped nail down a fairly easy process for us to build and ship new ones pretty quickly.
Look, no one is going to mistake us marketers for engineers.
(I asked Andrej, who heads integrations at Databox, ‘so does this mean we’re engineers now?’ His response: ‘No.’)
But pretending to be engineers for a day in order to build and ship more Datablocks for our users felt like a high-leverage activity for all of us. So we committed a big part of our day to do just that.
For some integrations, we’ll be doubling the amount of pre-configured Datablocks currently available.
Check back with this post, or with our social accounts, for updates on new Datablocks added.
Wistia, along with several others, was one of the integrations I was most excited to work on this morning, as it’s a tool that we use pretty heavily here at Databox.
From onboarding resources to top-of-funnel content, we use a combination of Soapbox and Wistia to produce most of the video content we put out, so adding more pre-configured Datablocks to our Wistia integration is also going to save us a ton of time, too.
Here are the metrics now available in the Datablock Library:
With all of these metrics now available as Datablocks, look how easy (and fast) it is to build a meaningful video marketing dashboard…

More and more Databox partners and customers are using Drift to engage their website visitors, so adding more pre-configured Datablocks available out of the box was a no-brainer.
We’ve seen increased success using Drift ourselves lately, so this was another one we were excited about internally.
These metrics are now available in the Datablock Library:
And here’s me setting up a Drift dashboard in ~2 minutes using some of these new Datablocks…
