Ready to set up PAXminer for your region? Great! There are some things you need to do. Don’t worry, it’s pall easy. Follow these steps:
so I want a point person from each region to own the stats/process for the region. While it’s mostly hands off, I want you to know how the database works and how the data gets posted to it. This will help you with any QC that needs to happen, to help your guys if they have questions, and enables you to run ad-hoc reports if needed.
First step – download this database tool that will give you access to everything:
After installed, create a new database connection (click the little blue plug with a +)
Database Type: MySQL
Server Host: f3stlouis.cac36jsyb5ss.us-east-2.rds.amazonaws.com
You will have read only access to all of the F3 region schemas so you can see how the data looks when populated, and you will have full access to your region schema so you can take care of things as needed. You can interact with the various tables like a glorified spreadsheet, or you can run SQL statements if you know how or if you want to learn 🙂
Do you have any experience with databases at all? If not, don’t stress – it’s easy.
Once you get the DB utility installed, the next step is to have you specify which slack channels you want PM to look in for Backblasts.
It’s as simple as changing a “0” to a “1” for what channels you want to scour for BBs.
Then you need to invite @PAXminer to each of those Slack channels so it has permissions to the channel.
After that – its ready to start posting backblasts. I recommend doing some test BBs so you can get a feel for how it works and how the data shows up in the database.
