I will raise this thread to the Product Management team of Tableau to see if we can provide some additional information on the roadmap for OData support.
If you find some ideas that capture the desired added functionality please upvote it. The development team does review the ideas for each release planning cycle.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for raising this thread to the team. Even if there is nothing planned it would be good to know. I'll start looking into the ideas as well.
Thanks Edward/Patrick, this is exactly what we need to see happening sooner than later - Odata is the ultimate way to make data exchange over the web easy and some of Tableau's competitors handle this very well. As a product manager for a B2B software company I can tell the protocol is quite a revolution compared to traditional methods and it's really unexpected to realize Tableau doesn't capitalize on it. Companies are looking for BI tools that can connect easily to their data and Odata is by far the most user friendly manner i've seen out there.
