    Tableau Write-back functionality in 10.5 from crosstab to DB using Extensions and APIs?

    James Malaniuk

      With the release of 10.5 my understanding is that Tableau supports dashboard Extensions API to which allow users to interact with the data and supports write-back capabilities. 

       

      We are looking for the ability for an end user to interact with a crosstab in a dashboard and input values in the fields of certain columns which would capture their entries and write back to a DB on the back end.  I have seen some info on JS API apps potentially having the ability to do this.

       

      Has anyone in the community successfully implemented something similar in 10.5 and if so, how did you go about it?

       

      Thanks in advance.
