Tableau allows you to create advanced charts and reports on your data and create interactive dashboards that let you view trends and turn your data into actionable insights.

It's easier than ever to connect to Tableau using FileMaker's new REST API.

To add a FileMaker data source, you must first make some settings. Make sure you have the following:

~ FileMaker Server and solution files must have FileMaker Data APIs enabled
~ There is a layout in the FileMaker file that contains all the fields that you want Tableau to have access to
