Tableau Integration


#1

Can you add an integration with Tableau (the same way that Google Sheets currently integrates with Tableau)?

Alternatively, can you tweak your API so that Air Table to Sql Server via Zapier allows a user to edit an existing row and then sync that row with a table in Sql Server?


#2

I also need help with this. Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Shane.

Shane, I found an interim solution.

Check out Railsware AirTable Importer. You can basically use it as a pseudo api to pull your data into google sheets (on a 1hr cadence, or quick if you manually hit refresh), then live connect the google sheets to Tableau.

I’m trying this as well since Sheets works for pulling in live data on publicly traded stocks and Airtable doesn’t – at least not without some Python scripting (from what I can tell).

Have you had success with the Railsware integration getting you what you need in Tableau? How has it impacted your use of Airtable?


#5

Yes the railsware add-in to Google Sheets helps and is easy to set up. It doesn’t impact Airtable, it just replicates the data once per hour
