Understanding Youtube channels in Dataslayer
Have you added more users to manage your Brand Account channel but it does not appear when you log in on Dataslayer?
Please take into account that our login in Youtube is made with the Google official login.
What is a Brand Account in Youtube?
It's an account specifically for your brand and different of your personal account that YouTube provides to those who want multiple people managing the channel in a company. It's also helpful to those who have multiple channels.
You can learn more about this in the Google official documentation.
I have a Brand Account, but why it does not appear in the Google official login when you try to use the Youtube connector in Dataslayer?
This is because Youtube has some limitations on the Brand Account permissions. One of this limitations is that the people you invite to manage the channel can only do it in Youtube Studio, they CANNOT manage it via YouTube APIs.
This is external to Dataslayer, you can look at it on this Google support page.
Our connectors only work with the official data source APIs (Google in this case), and Dataslayer acts as a link between the data sources and the user, so the metrics, dimensions and permissions available depend on these APIs, not on us. The APIs and the data source platforms are different and independent products.
As always, please contact us via our live chat on our website or via email if you still have doubts or questions. We are happy to help!
