Integration of Tableau and Google Drive

In the business world, data is the most important thing. So, it is very necessary to have an efficient way of storing and analyzing business data in order to help make a decision. In this regard, a lot of companies around the world are creating their own software for data storage and analysis.

Tableau is a software that can be used to create dashboards and analyze business data. It has a wide selection of features which allows users to do almost everything they want with data. For example, users can create charts, tables, and maps and save them to Tableau Server or publish them to the web.

Google Drive is a file hosting service created by Google. It is a cloud storage spution which allows users to store files. Specially, Google Drive can be used to share files with other people, cplaborate on documents, etc.

In this part of the article outline, I will explain how Tableau works with Google Drive to share files and how it helps users to manage and organize data.

Firstly, Tableau offers a built-in connection to Google Drive. By connecting Tableau to Google Drive, users can easily share Tableau workbooks with others by saving them as HTML files and then sending them in Google Drive. Besides that, if users want to share directly from Tableau instead of saving HTML files, they can do it by clicking ‘Send in Drive’ button at the top of the dashboard. The reason why this is useful is that users can access these workbooks from anywhere and even cplaborate with other people using Google Drive (even though they don’t have Tableau.

Secondly, when users want to share their workbooks on Tableau Server or publish them on the web, they can use Google Drive to sync those files with the server. By doing this, users don’t need to worry about managing multiple copies of the same file and they don’t even need to remember where the file was saved. However, one thing that users should keep in mind is that they should distribute read/write permissions to Google Drive before sharing their files because otherwise only read permission will be granted.

Thirdly, Google Drive can be used to save workbooks after publishing them on Tableau Server or publishing them on the web (using the URL from Tableau. This is useful for users who want to save their workbooks for future use or people who like to have backups of their workbooks. There is also a possibility for multiple people working on one project because anyone with Google Drive can access it and edit it. Besides that, users can use Google Drive to create fpders which will help them organize items better.

In my opinion integrating Tableau with Google Drive is quite useful because it allows users to perform more actions with their data than they could have done if both softwares weren’t integrated. Moreover, the integration removes the need for multiple copies of the same data stored in different places which would be inconvenient for users and hard to maintain. Luckily, with Google Drive, users don’t need to worry about managing multiple copies of their files because Google Drive takes care of it all for them.
