Those are the data tables/data sources/data sets. You build reports on top
Tableau is a tool for you to build reports and to visualize data from data
You won't see any report built within Salesforce.

Eric, welcome to Tableau and Salesforce community! As @Alexander Mou mentioned, what you see is a list of tables and objects from Salesforce. Although Salesforce canned reports will not show up in Tableau, you can re-create those exact reports from Salesforce in Tableau but with more capabilities. Keep in mind that the fields names you see in Salesforce may not exactly match with the field names you see in Tableau.... Feel free to message me if you need more assistance!
Hi Alan, for sure Tableau offers more capabilities, but navigating through the tree of Salesforce table is a difficult journey. Being able to replicate Salesforce reports in Tableau, the way a direct import of an existing report does, would be a great tool. At least in the transition stage.
You said if Eric needs more assistance he can mail you. How this can be done? Is the offer available for me as well?
yes, sorry for the delay response. Message me through here and I will answer whatever I can
