🔍 Additional Service Quirks

  • Vitally's internal database has a delay between Census completing its upload and having those results reflected in the UI. This delay can be a couple seconds to a couple minutes in extreme cases.
  • As with all Census syncs, when you unmap a field in Census, we will stop updating those fields. We do not delete them.
