I wrote a blog post on Tableau's blog on how can you create row level comment write back to database from Tableau Server:
Let me know if you need any further info
Thanks Tamas for the reply. I will go through the post and will try to understand the things.
Hey Philip George,
I had the same problem, I have solved it with tableau new connection to google sheet.
I let my users comment on a google sheet where each row is identified by it's key, and then I connect the google sheet my data source.
I don't need their comments for my DB but I guess you can easily convert the google sheet to ".csv" file and load it to your back end database.
I had a similar issue to capture comments to my data at row level/aggregated level of my data.
Below is my suggestion in case if you are not allowed to use any third party source to save your organization data.
I created a list in SharePoint where I created the fields in the list by which my captured commentary would be at a unique row / aggregate level. There were about 6 fields.
Note: Query String Webpart might not work as it will send only one value to another webpart.
Later once the comments are available you can now update your data source with a lookup and publish again.
Hope this helps.
