Introducing the Tableau-to-Excel Tool

As a contractor at Starschema, I had the opportunity to contribute to developing the Tableau-to-Excel tool, a web app empowering users to receive regular reports directly in their inbox, fully consumable by Excel. The process is simple yet highly effective:

Select a Tableau Report: Users can choose their preferred Tableau report, containing the specific data required for analysis and decision-making.

Select a Schedule: With the ability to customize the reporting frequency, users can receive the reports daily, weekly, or at intervals that suit their operational needs.

Add Email Address: Users provide their email addresses, ensuring they receive the reports directly in their inboxes.

Receive Excel Reports: As per the chosen schedule, the reports are automatically generated and sent to the specified email address. The reports are presented in Excel, making data analysis and manipulation seamless.

Advantages of the Tableau-to-Excel Tool

The Tableau-to-Excel tool offers several key advantages that enhance data collaboration and decision-making:

Efficiency and Convenience: Users save time and effort spent manually accessing and compiling data by automating the report generation and delivery process.

Timely Insights: With regular report deliveries, users stay up-to-date with the latest data, enabling timely insights and informed decision-making.

Excel Familiarity: Excel remains a popular data analysis and manipulation tool. By providing reports in Excel format, the tool ensures user-friendliness and accessibility.

Working as a developer on the Tableau-to-Excel tool project with Starschema was a rewarding experience. The collaboration between Tableau and Starschema brings powerful data visualization and analytics capabilities, providing organizations with a competitive edge. The Tableau-to-Excel tool further enhances this collaboration by streamlining data delivery, enabling timely insights, and empowering data-driven decision-making.
