Reading Time: 2 minute

The Ceros integration with ChartBlocks gives you an easier way to make customized, interactive charts and pull them right into your Ceros experiences. One of the best things about ChartBlocks is that not only are you able to quickly create custom charts, but the charts will update in real time, so any changes you make to your dataset in ChartBlocks will update the chart in your Ceros experience automatically.

Before you begin creating a ChartBlock chart, you’ll want to set up the integration on your account. Here’s how:

  • First, if you haven’t done so already, you need to reach out to your Customer Success Manager to set up your ChartBlocks login. All new and existing Ceros subscriptions include a ChartBlocks Elite Plan for free
  • Once you have access to ChartBlocks, login to your ChartBlocks account and navigate to “my profile” in the upper right corner
  • On this page, under “API Tokens”, click Add to create a new API token, name your new token “Ceros Integration” and click save
  • Copy both the “ChartBlocks Access Token” and “ChartBlocks Secret.” We’ll need these in a later step
  • In the Ceros Admin, navigate to your name in the top right corner and select “Account” from the drop-down menu
  • In the sub-menu along the right hand side, select “Integrations”
  • Now you can toggle on your ChartBlocks integration, which will prompt you to enter the “ChartBlocks Access Token” and “ChartBlocks Secret” we saved earlier
  • You can opt to turn on the integration for all previous experiences as well, and then click save
  • Now, you’ll have a ChartBlocks button in your Ceros studio toolbar where you can easily access each chart you’ve created in ChartBlocks
