You can connect Tability to Tableau to automatically pull data for your check-ins without having to switch context.

Once you add Tableau as a data source for an outcome/Key Result, Tability can:

  • Pull the most recent value of the metric when you open the check-in form.

  • Automatically sync your metric while the plan is active (Premium subscription only).

Available on Plus and Premium subscriptions

How to enable the integration

Step 1. Upgrade to the Plus or Premium subscription

You'll need to have a Plus subscription to use Tableau as a data source and automatically pull the metric value in the UI for your check-ins.

You'll need to have a Premium subscription to enable the sync.

Step 2. Connect your Tableau account to Tability

  1. Go to Workspace Settings > Integrations

  2. Click on the button Connect to Tableau

  3. Follow the steps to connect your Tableau account to Tability

You will need the following:

  • Tableau site URL: copy the URL of the homepage of your Tableau workspace

  • Personal access token: follow these instructions to get your personal access token

How to add a data source to an outcome/key result

Once Tableau is connected, you will be able to use it as a data source for your outcomes/KRs.

Step 1. Open up your edit panel of your outcome/KR

Click on "Edit" to open up the Edit panel of any outcome/KR in your workspace.

Step 2. Select Tableau as a data source

Go to the Data source tab and select Tableau.

Step 3. Configure your data source

Use the Tableau selector to get the right data from Tableau.

Step 4. Save your connection

Click on "Save & preview" to complete the connection.

You can now toggle the option to Enable auto-sync of your metric if you're on a Premium subscription.

Tability will retrieve the value of your metric from Tableau every other day, and will create a check-in on behalf of the owner of the outcome/KR.

The first data sync should happen within 1h of enabling this option.

How to use the data source in your check-ins

It's all automatic! Once an outcome/KR is connected to a data source, Tability will automatically pull the current value whenever you open up the check-in modal.
