    Web Data Connector Basics

    Shane Chatfield

      Hello

      With my limited knowledge of servers and networks, I'm struggling to settle on the best Tableau connection tool for my needs; I'm thinking it's creating a new web data connector, but need your help. The scenario is this:

       

      I have log-in credentials to an online database, called Shelter Buddy.

      Once logged in there are many navigation links, one being reports

      Under reports there are numerous different report types, each leading to a date select page, and finally generating a report that is readable in the browser, but also exportable.

       

      Is this a scenario for which a web data connector is the right strategy for linking to Tableau, to avoid having to pull reports and export them each time we want to refresh data?

       

      Thank you!
