Upgrading Connectors

Analytics Edge Connector Upgrades

CRITICAL: make sure to update the Analytics Edge Add-in BEFORE updating connectors. Some of the older add-ins caused corruption problems when updating certain connectors (e.g. Google AdWords or Bing Ads).

2018-03-12 The connector for Google AdWords MUST be updated to the latest release BEFORE March 28th, 2018. Previous releases used API versions that are no longer supported and will stop working on that date!

All Analytics Edge connectors are managed by the add-ins themselves — click the License button on the Analytics Edge ribbon bar to open the License wizard (may appear as “License UPDATE”).

If there is an update available, the new release number will appear in the “Available” column. Click the entry for the connector to get details. IMPORTANT: Always update the Add-in itself (top of the list) to the latest release BEFORE updating the connectors.

To install the connector, simply click the Install button. You will be instructed to restart Microsoft Excel to complete the process. The new connector version should automatically activate your license for you.
