Connecting Klipfolio to Microsoft OneDrive


Our recent redesign simplifies the data transfer experience by combining raw and modelled data sources into a single object - data feeds.
If you see Data Feeds in the left navigation sidebar, go to this article.
These new features are being released gradually. If you don't see them in your account yet - no worries - they’re coming soon!


You can set up a connection between Klipfolio and Microsoft OneDrive to display data from files in your Microsoft OneDrive business or personal account on a dashboard.

How do I connect to OneDrive data in Klipfolio?

When you connect your OneDrive data to Klipfolio, you will be prompted to connect your OneDrive account by entering your username and password.

Doing so creates a connection that enables Klipfolio to securely access your OneDrive account. By default, your connection name looks like this: yourname@OneDrive<date and time created>. You can modify the default connection name when you create a new connection or from your list of connections, accessed by clicking your Account Name (located at the bottom of the left navigation sidebar) and selecting Account > Connected Accounts or by clicking the button in the left navigation sidebar and selecting Connections.

You can use and reuse the same account connection every time you connect to OneDrive. If you have trouble accessing an existing connection, your OAuth token may have expired. Go here for troubleshooting tips.

How do I add a OneDrive data source?

To add a OneDrive data source:

  1. Navigate to the Service Connectors page in Klipfolio and choose OneDrive from the list.
  2. If this is your first time connecting to OneDrive:
    • Click Connect an account. Enter your OneDrive login credentials and click Next. If prompted, click Allow Access to enable Klipfolio to securely access your OneDrive data. Click Continue.
  3. If you have connected to OneDrive before:
    • Select an existing connection (token) from the drop-down list and click Continue.
  4. Select either My Drive for files in your OneDrive account, or Shared with Me for files that have been shared with you in OneDrive. You can filter the results by Last Modified or Alphabetical.
  5. Click Get data.
  6. Ensure this is the data you’re looking for. If you’re using Klips, optionally select the checkbox to Model your data. If you’re using PowerMetrics, which requires modelled data sources, you’ll automatically enter the modeller after clicking Continue. Learn more about modelling data sources.
  7. Click Continue.
  8. Name, choose refresh settings, and, optionally, share your data source.
  9. Click Save.

Note: If needed, you can configure Advanced File Settings, however, in most cases this is unnecessary.

How do I create a OneDrive custom Klip?

You create custom Klips from either your list of Klips or your Dashboard. You choose a data visualization format, for example, a pie chart, gauge, or table, and decide whether you want to use an existing data source or create a new one. In the Klip Editor, there are limitless opportunities to modify, relate, and display your data. See the following related articles for more information and get building!
