I don't see download data for my podcast. What happened?

Chartable will not populate download data for your podcast unless your Chartable dashboard's Trackable prefix is present and active in the podcast's RSS feed.

Present meaning that the prefix is visible in the RSS feed that is added to your dashboard, and active meaning that Chartable recognizes that your podcast has the Trackable prefix.

The Trackable status for each podcast can be refreshed/viewed on the Team Settings > Podcasts page of your dashboard, and the status for the dashboard as a whole can be refreshed/viewed on the Integrations > Trackable page.

Pending Status

If you see a Pending status, navigate to Team Settings > Podcasts and ensure you have added the podcast to your dashboard.

Then, reference the steps for your hosting provider listed on the Integrations > Trackable page to ensure the prefix is integrated into the RSS feed correctly. You can also manually check your podcast's RSS feed by looking for your team's prefix in the episode audio file links.

Once you have ensured that your team's Trackable prefix is integrated into the RSS feed, click "Refresh Trackable Status" on the Integrations > Trackable page and wait 24-48 hours for data to populate.

Active Status, Missing Prefix

If you see an Active status with the message "These podcasts do not have the Trackable prefix," reference the steps for your hosting provider listed on the Integrations > Trackable page to ensure the prefix is integrated into the RSS feed correctly. You can also manually check your podcast's RSS feed by looking for your team's prefix in the episode audio file links.

Once you have ensured that your team's Trackable prefix is integrated into the RSS feed, click "Refresh Trackable Status" on the Integrations > Trackable page and wait 24-48 hours for data to populate.

Active Status

If you see an Active status, and your data has not been flowing through for 48+ hours, kindly check if you have a duplicate podcast in the Apple Podcasts store, or have multiple copies of the podcast added to your account. 

Our system has a hard time mapping downloads to duplicate podcasts. Please work with Apple support to remove the duplicate podcast, wait 24-48 hours for our system to sync, and work through these troubleshooting steps again.
