Correct Data Issues

If you are experiencing data issues with the data Exist Integrations is sending to Exist, you can initiative a 'Zero Out.' This will zero out all attributes for the last 7 days. Then it will reprocess all pulses.

This can happen if a pulse is deleted or if you manually adjust the totals of the custom attributes from the Exist web or mobile apps.


The WhatPulse Processor runs every hour at 10 minutes past the hour. It will execute the following sequence:

  • Download all pulses from WhatPulse for the last 7 days.
  • Save a record in the Exist Integrations database for each new pulse and selected attribute combinations.
  • Check if the Correct Data Issues was triggered. If it is, the attributes will be reset to 0 on Exist for the last 7 days.
  • Increment the attribute value in Exist for each Pulse/Attribute combination by day.
  • Purge any data linked to your WhatPulse user over than 10 days.


You can remove all data from Exist Integrations by disconnecting the service through the Management page. Exist Integrations will also disconnect the service if the service returns a 401 Unauthorized from the API.
