Article summary


We do not recommend changing advanced settings unless you are an experienced Panoply user.

For users who have some experience working with their data in Panoply, there are a number of items that can be customized for this data source.

  1. Destination Prefix: This is the prefix that Panoply will use in the name of the tables included in the collection.
    • The default prefix for Square is square. To change this, entire your desired prefix.
    • The naming convention is square_<__resource>, where __resource is a dynamic field. For example, for the resource named customers, the default destination table will be square_customers.
  2. Incremental Load:  By default, Panoply collects all of your data from Square on your first collect. After that, Panoply collects from the date of the last successful collection minus 1 calendar day.
  3. Destination Schema: This is the name of the target schema to save the data. The default schema for data warehouses built on Google BigQuery is panoply. The default schema for data warehouses built on Amazon Redshift is public. This cannot be changed once a source has been collected.
  4. Exclude: The Exclude option allows you to exclude certain data, such as names, addresses, or other personally identifiable information. Enter the column names of the data to exclude.
  5. Truncate: Truncate deletes all the current data stored in the destination tables, but not the tables themselves. Afterwards Panoply will recollect all the available data for this data source.
  6. Click Save Changes then click Collect.
    • The data source appears grayed out while the collection runs.
    • You may add additional data sources while this collection runs.
    • You can monitor this collection from the Jobs page or the Data Sources page.
    • After a successful collection, navigate to the Tables page to review the data results.
