Fivetran connectors offer a way to pull data from a variety of external data sources such as Salesforce, Google Analytics, Facebook and many more.

Fivetran offers more than 100 data source connectors which you can choose from. In order to set up a data connector for your exMonDM service you need to go to the Settings page and choose the External Data Connectors tab on the left-hand side.


In the External Data Connectors tab, you will see a list of all data connectors which have been set up in your exMonDM service and if you want to add a new one you can do so by clicking the Add connector button. Then you can simply select the data connector you want to use from the list. 



Administrators can now share table data with third parties using our REST API.  By clicking the Share button in the Table toolbar -> Advanced you can create a link to share with others.

Note: Anyone with the link will be able to see your data. 


To get an overview of which tables/projects/categories have active links go to Settings -> API Access. It is also possible to create and delete links from there by right-clicking the item you want to share.

Database Users

Administrators can now create SQL Server database users from within exMon Data Management. that you can use to integrate with other solutions. You have the option to give different permissions depending on the schema. Simply check all the permissions you want the user to have for each schema in your system. When the user has been created, he can be used to connect to your data, for example with Power BI and DataFactory.

Saved views on Web

Users can now select their Saved Views on the Web. The Saved Views preserve the column layout and visibility as well as applied filtering.

Product Feedback

Let's talk! We want your help to shape the future of exMon. A user Feedback Button has been added that allows you to give us feedback on how we could improve. If you would like to get involved, simply select the smiley face and type away.

After reviewing the feedback we may get back to you requesting additional information or providing you with a solution.

Create schema

Then a small popup will appear where you choose a name for your new schema and press 'Create'. 

New icons for Actions

A common request is "Can we get more icons for actions?" Well, we added thousands of them! The icons are now visible on the desktop version and will be available on the web soon. To change icons for Actions go to Table Designer -> Edit Actions in the table toolbar. You must check the Visible in toolbar checkbox to see the action in your table toolbar.
