    Show backend data in dashboard

      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to show a selected few columns from the backend as a table in the dashboard. For example, I have store level data(5000 stores), I want to show 50 stores in the dashboard at a time, with a scroll down option(so that I can show all the 500 stores data but in a 50 store window).

       

      Thanks,

      SP

          Yes, you just have to make sure that you have a dimension in your data that is a unique value such as an ID field if you want to see row level data . 

          If you plan on showing a lot of rows you'll start to run into performance issues (Not really what Tableau is for)

          If you put the sheet on a dashboard with a height that allows for 50 records tall and set to fit width you'll have a scrollbar on the right side that allows the user to navigate up and down.
