How do I connect a query to Tableau?

Tableau is an industry leading tool used for creating impactful visualizations for large sets of data. We have created a quick and easy integration to be able to pull your data from CircuiTree directly into Tableau to allow you to create dashboards to display your data. The integration allows you to set up the connection once and then refresh the data as needed.
