    Can Tableau write data back to the data source?


      Is there a way to write set or group information back into the underlying database so it can be used in subsequent analysis?


      I'm thinking that the user can spot patterns in data and select a group of points on a visualisation as having an apparent visual correlation, even though there is no mathematical/analytical way to do this correlation. The output of this human 'correlation by eye' is useful data and I want to persist it in the database somehow.


      Will a raw sql query to insert/update rows work?


      Any other ideas?
