Tableau: Connect SafetyCulture data to Tableau Desktop

Learn how to connect your SafetyCulture data to Tableau Desktop.

Please note that the web data connector has been deprecated as of the 2023.1 Tableau release. Any existing data sources using the connector will no longer work as expected.

Please follow the instructions in this article to switch your data source from using the web data connector to using the SafetyCulture Exporter or feeds API.

What's Tableau?

Tableau is a powerful business intelligence (BI) software that helps organizations analyze and visualize their data. It provides interactive and user-friendly tools for data exploration, analysis, and sharing insights with others.

Using the SafetyCulture Exporter or feeds API, you can export your SafetyCulture data and connect it to Tableau to transform the raw data into interactive dashboards, reports, and visualizations for business intelligence and insights.

If your organization uses Tableau Server, you will need to connect the data source in Tableau Desktop first.

The data that gets fetched is based on the data to which the account that generated the API token has access to. If you're an administrator, learn how to assign yourself the "Override permissions: View all data" permission to have visibility over all your organization's templates, inspections, and actions.

Connect to SafetyCulture

  1. Set up the SafetyCulture Exporter or use the feeds API to export your data to your computer, server, or database.

  2. Once your SafetyCulture data is available, connect it to Tableau Desktop.

If you run into any errors or have any questions regarding the integration, please contact our customer support team for assistance.
