If your Ipiphany account has integrations enabled, the Google Play Store data source is available when creating or appending data to a Dataset. It is used to download and import Android App reviews.

Step 1: Give the Connection a memorable name

We suggest the name contains both a reference to the Google Play Store and the name of the App you are sourcing reviews for. e.g. Google Play Store - Barclays UK

Step 2: Add Google Play Store page URL

The URL is the link to the Google Play Store page for the source app. A good way to find this is to Google '[the app name] play store' and Google should return it as the top result e.g. 'Barclays UK play store'.

Step 3: Add an Earliest Record Date if required

The earliest record date limits the results to only those after the specified date. Note that the most recent reviews will return first up to your maximum records setting.

Step 4: Set the Maximum Records to Import

This setting limits the number of reviews that are downloaded in one synchronization.

Step 5: Choose if you want to 'Download Only' or not

If you enable 'Download Only' the reviews will be downloaded and appear in Dataset Settings > Data but will not be appended to your Dataset. This is useful when you want to manually add a column, translate, or perform some other manual action to the data prior to it being appended.
