Hello. I am an owner/manager on my company's YouTube account; however when I try to add YouTube as a data source for a dashboard it trys to pull my personal account data, with no option to see my company's account. Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Ben Brooks

When you login to multiple Google accounts in your browser, the first one is tagged as the default and that one is the only one used by some applications. Try selecting Logout. then close your browser and re-open it. Log in to the company's YouTube account first, then try to set up your dashboard.

(note: I actually have a second gmail account I use as a 'company-only' identity to avoid issues like this - it does not have access to my personal accounts)

Hi Ben,

Currently, the YouTube connector provides data for individual channel owners.

Support for YouTube Partner Content Owners channels and users who have access through a Google+ page is in development.
