Can we integrate tableau with civicrm to get enhanced report functionalities?


I use Tableau to enhance the reporting possibilities of CiviCRM.

Tableau can connect to many different data sources. I use a SQL connection to this, and this gives me full access to all the data tables in CiviCRM. I can then use Tableau to make interesting connections between different tables in an easy way.

I have not explored API connection, but I think that would be just as possible as SQL connection.

  • @Koustav you just need a SQL username with the right access rights and then you are good to go. – Flying Jun 3 '16 at 5:38

Yes you can, I know one CiviCRM user that uses Tableau to get his data reports from CiviCRM. I expect he will answer to this post too, his name here is Flying
