Moving away from Google Analytics

With the introduction of the new Dashboard Usage, we’re choosing to collect data and store logged events locally so you don’t have to share any data with Google Analytics anymore! This ensures a higher level of security because you decide what to do with your data. Dashboard Usage uses a local database to store information and this data can be used to power other dashboards, right in Tableau!

dashboard events

Track Dashboard Events

Analysing the events on your dashboard gives you more insights in how users interact with your dashboards. Configure which of these events you want to track and use insights to improve and design better dashboards! For example, remove the filters that are never clicked and make the marks that are clicked often more prominent.

Track Client Information

With the Dashboard Usage extension, you have more tracking capability than ever! Track client information such as screen resolution and installed fonts, and tailor the dashboard experience for your users to serve them better dashboards! For example, use the most common screen resolution to size your dashboards so people have the best viewing experience!

Enterprise-Ready Security

When company policy or IT security requires an on-premise installation or integration of the extension, we can help you organize it. This is particularly useful when your Tableau Server is not granted internet access or when you need to be in full control of the usage and management of your extension.

On-premise installations allow you to be in control of infrastructure, privacy, governance and to comply with company policies. It also allows the installation or hosting of several individual extensions. Please contact us for more information regarding on-premise installation of our extensions.

  • Be in full control of your extensions

  • Respect data governance policies

  • Comply with company security policies

  • Installation support (remote)

  • Excellent operational support (Tableau Gold Partner)

  • Updates managed by IT

  • No internet access required
