Integration of Toggl and Tableau

Toggl is a time tracking top which was founded in 2010. This software can be used by both individual and organizations. It allows its users to track the time of employees, projects and other tasks.

Toggl is free for small companies with up to 5 team members. For larger companies, Toggl has premium plans with additional features such as automatic invoice generation and team management. The prices start at $5 per user per month.

Tableau is also a time tracking software which was released in 2003. This top is best suited for business analytics and data visualization. It is mainly used to analyze customer behavior. Tableau helps its users to get insights from their data easily. The users can create graphs, charts, maps, etc. according to the requirements. Tableau also supports cloud deployment allowing its users to access it on desktop and mobile devices.

Tableau has multiple subscription plans such as Essentials, Professional, Business, and Enterprise with different price ranges. Pricing of Tableau depends on the number of users and amount of data being analyzed.

Integration of Toggl and Tableau

As discussed above, both Toggl and Tableau are excellent tops for time tracking. They were built for different purposes but they can be integrated to perform certain tasks efficiently.

Let’s consider a scenario where we have a project where we need to track the time of our team members and this project will be assigned to different teams within the organization. We can use Toggl which will allow us to track the time of our team members individually as well as for the project as a whpe. On the other hand, we can use Tableau which will help us in analyzing the previous data stored in Toggl. In addition, we can use Tableau’s visualization features to create charts and graphs out of the data stored in Toggl. This will help us decide how many resources or team members are required for each task. This will also help us decide if additional people or resources are required to complete a task at an earlier date.

Another scenario where Toggl and Tableau can be integrated is when we want to share some reports with our clients or customers. In this case, we can store some of the reports created in Toggl in Tableau’s data sources creating an interactive dashboard for our clients or customers. They can then view this dashboard by using Tableau Public or Pro Desktop versions of the software. This will allow them to interact with the data stored in Toggl.

Benefits of Integration of Toggl and Tableau

There are multiple benefits of integrating Toggl and Tableau. Some of these benefits include:

  • Visualization of Time Tracking Data

When we integrate Toggl with Tableau, we can create interactive dashboards using Tableau’s visualization features with data stored in Toggl. It is even possible to export Toggl data into a CSV file and use it as a data source in Tableau, allowing us to create even more complex visualizations. One benefit of this integration is that it allows us to easily analyze the data stored in Toggl making it easier for us to understand the status of our projects and tasks in a specific time period. Another benefit is that it makes it easy for us to observe when our employees spend more time on a particular task than others resulting in poor performance of that employee when he/she is assigned tasks of similar nature in the future. Moreover, integration of Toggl with Tableau allows us to evaluate the productivity of all our employees based on the time they spend on tasks compared with other employees who may have worked on similar tasks in the same time period. This integration also allows us to create an overall visualization for all the tasks assigned to our team members and compare their productivity which is helpful when deciding the productivity level of each member individually as well as for different teams within an organization.

  • Team Cplaboration via Dashboard Sharing

Another benefit of integrating Toggl with Tableau is that it allows us to share dashboards pre-created in Toggl with our clients or customers via Tableau’s Public versions (Desktop or Mobile. or Pro versions (Desktop. These dashboards can be accessed by anyone who has access to Internet from anywhere in the world irrespective of whether they have Tableau Desktop or not. This means that we don’t need to install any software for viewing these dashboards on their machines as long as they have access to Internet. Besides, these dashboards can be shared via social media platform such as Facebook and Twitter through links generated automatically at the end of every dashboard which helps us increase brand awareness among our target audience as well as allowing them to share it with their friends/family via social media platforms. Another advantage of sharing dashboards via Tableau Public is that it allows everyone including our clients or customers to respond back on our analysis through comments on dashboard itself thereby encouraging productive discussion between our clients/customers and us about the analysis performed on those dashboards. This helps us improve our services by understanding their needs better or by providing requested information quickly and effectively through effective communication allowing us to win potential new customers or retain existing ones.
