Importing Qualaroo Data Into Tableau
Tableau allows people to visualize and interpret their data with personalized formatting. Qualaroo customers on Growth and up can push their feedback into Tableau for in-depth, visualized analysis.
You will need:
- A copy of Tableau or Tableau Public
- A Qualaroo Account with access to the Reporting API and valid API credentials (available on app.qualaroo.com/account)
- A Qualaroo Web Data Connector URL
Open Tableau and on the Connect sidebar under “To a server” click “Web Data Connector”
When prompted for a Web Data Connector URL paste in the Qualaroo Web Data Connector URL and hit enter. (see below for instructions on how to create your WDC URL)
Once your WDC URL is accepted you will be prompted to select a survey from your account and click “Continue”.
Once you select a survey you will have an opportunity to select a date range as well as what custom properties to include.
Once you select your options click “Import” the window will close and after a few seconds you will see “Executing Query” and “Loading Metadata” dialogs. Depending on the dataset size this may take a while.
When the process is completed you will see the Qualaroo data in a new Book.
Generating a Qualaroo Web Data Connector URL
A Web Data Connector URL is unique to a Qualaroo customer account. The API key and secret are provisioned by the customer’s account page (app.qualaroo.com/account) and are the same as for the Reporting API.
Here is the standard template for all Qualaroo WDC URL’s:
https://api.qualaroo.com/api/v1/tableau/wdc?auth_key=[API KEY]&auth_secret=[API SECRET]
With an example API key of 1234 and secret of abc123 we would construct the following URL:
