Overall Satisfaction with Tableau Online

At our agency, Tableau is used by our analytics team to analyze client data, evaluate their account performance, derive key insights for optimization, and tailor reports.
  • Powerful and user-friendly data visualization
  • Extensive data source support/Seamless data import
  • Interactive reports
  • Expensive for small businesses and individuals
  • Custom formatting is a feature currently missing and would be great to add
  • Lacks report scheduling/emailing feature
Tableau supports a vast number of data source connections and importing data into Tableau is easy and seamless.
Sharing dashboards is very easy, however, custom formatting features are limited and something that can definitely be improved in the next versions.
Tableau is a great tool for dashboard creation & also a powerful platform to slice and dice data in various dimensions to analyze and derive insights. However, if data visualization is not your main use of the platform and you need features like predictive modeling, then Power BI might be a more relevant choice.
