Why am I not seeing the company data link for some accounts?

InsideView Append shows the company data link when there is data for that particular account instantly. However, when the data is being updated or validated it takes time to update existing accounts. May be this could be one of the reasons why you don't see the company data link or if there is no data available for that particular company then no link is shown. The update/refresh time depends on total number of accounts in your CRM. It can take a few hours or couple of days for the first update to complete. InsideView recommends you to wait and check the accounts for which company data link is not available.
