Dataloader.io

Dataloader is an incredible asset for a large organization or an organization that has a robust Salesforce environment. Specifically, Dataloader has allowed our sales team to focus on driving sales while our operations team can load the data they need in a manner that allows for robust reporting and tracking on our sales process. Organizations with less robust Salesforce environments or Salesforce environments in which many people are expected to maintain their own information likely do not need Dataloader.

If your data sets are coming in without much stewardship then Tableau Prep can help to clean the data before you start trying to create visualizations for your end users. You will save a lot of time this way - rather than seeing problems once you are creating dashboards. If you don't have large data sets or your data is relatively simple, then Tableau Prep may not be needed.

Pros

Dataloader.io

  • Extracting Salesforce attachments in original file format! I do not know of a tool that can do this better, or more efficiently! This is a huge benefit to companies that would like to extract attachments from Salesforce for tasks like data migrations.
  • Cross-object data extract within one file. You can pull data from related objects as long as there is a populated lookup from the object you are extracting, to another object (Child or Parent).
  • UI is simple and requires very little to no training. Given the acquisition of Mulesoft by Salesforce, I would not be surprised if DataLoader.IO is rolled out as the new global data loading tool for Salesforce.

Cons

Dataloader.io

  • Update option is being rarely used, unsure about the difference between upsert and update.
  • Always get errors when setting the batch API as a large number.
  • Sometimes I get loading errors when the number of records that need to be loaded is large.

It is easy to use and doesn't require a security token, so I enjoy using it. It also doesn't require any download or installation, which is sometimes a blocker to gettingthings done if the company has limits. also, the dataloader.io is easy for other people to pick up, so others can have visibility into the data jobs that have occurred

It is an intuitive application to use. Within a few clicks, you can be signed in to your org and ready to perform tasks. Data imports/exports/updates are streamlined so you can quickly start and configure your jobs. These can run in the background while you set up new tasks. Job history and tasks currently running on are on your home screen.

It works well and is user friendly for the basics but needs more options for bring in data (using SQL queries for example) and export format options.

I always feel like there is room for improvement, so a 10/10 in my book is not possible. Due to the easy-to-learn trail on Salesforce Trailhead for exporting, importing, etc. I find it exactly what any customer may need for their data management and integrity. This tool saves time, resources, and has helped our organization take a step forward in the right direction.

Because Tableau has such a great and active user-base, most real issues that we face with Prep can easily be solved by searching for your issue on Tableau's support site. There is likely someone else out there who has experienced your issue, and so many willing users out there willing to help share their workarounds. I have never had an issue arise to the point that I need urgent support with a live helper, so I cannot speak on that.

Alternatives Considered

Dataloader.io

I have used salesforce inspector also for operations like import and export of data from custom objects but it doesn't work well when you have data in huge numbers. Instead of using Salesforce Inspector, one should go for Dataloader.io if the number of records is huge to be dealt with.

Tabluea prep was much better than Spotfire for syncing data.

Return on Investment

Dataloader.io

  • HUGE time saving. When we need to clean or review data, we used to have to do it line by line. This can do the work within excel and make cleanup/management an afternoons work as opposed to a week.
  • Rollback what you did/change/deleted is relatively simple if you remember to back up the data you are manipulating.

Tableau Prep

  • More efficient dashboard production
  • More streamlined workflow
  • More autonomy with data sets
