How to write back data to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL or SAP HANA?
Last year in March I’ve been posting an extension which allowed Tableau end users to write back data directly from within a dashboard. Back in the days Tableau Extensions have been available in BETA only. Today – roughly 12 month later – 2 Tableau ROCKSTARS joined me on Tableaufans.com and shared their modified versions of the original extension. Therefore I’m happy to announce that you can now simply start to setup the extension you can see in the video below by:
- Must: Follow the instructions from the initial blog post
- Optional:Modify the Extension files from above to either
a) Adjust files to write data back to Microsoft SQL Server
b) Adjust files to write data back to SAP HANA
You’re good to go. If you are interested in commenting single data points like outliers and having a conversation around them rather than commenting a whole dashboard find this Tableaufans Commenting Extension
Other than that we’re always looking for feedback. So please give us an idea how helpful this blog post has been by leaving us a short comment below. Thanks a lot, Timo.
