Add Data

When you want to add a forecast or play a What-If scenario, the WriteBackExtreme extension allows you to add or change data that is connected to the visualizations present in your dashboard. You can see the changes and experience the impact. The data is safely stored in your database and does not overwrite your existing data. By adding and writing back adjusted forecasts, the effect of changes is visible in the Tableau visualization almost instantly.


The Collaboration template is a part of the Add Data module. It allows you to create annotations and comments on marks in your visualizations from within your dashboard. Consequently, this improves the collaboration in dashboards and makes it highly efficient. Keep track of your expert annotations and conversations on your most valuable assets.

Data Helper

With Data Helper, you can create a custom table from within your Tableau dashboard to store data and join it back in your Tableau dataset or use it in a different process. Use this module to eliminate Excel-based workflows and sheets that are floating around in your organization. Through this module, you can include in your analysis and track information that is not yet available in your database. The Data Helper allows you to create, edit and delete records from your custom table without changing existing data.

Data Correction

Some Data Quality use cases demand changing existing data in your database. For example, if you have a dataset based on sensor data, you might want to correct existing values or add missing data points. The Data Correction module allows you to do that. Your dashboard users can perform data corrections directly from the dashboards where they detect the inconsistencies.


Data Correction

Management Console

The powerful Tableau write-back capabilities offer a highly configurable and governance-induced Management Console. The control room of the Extension is password protected and allows authorized access to different roles of users. Advanced permissions structure, groups, and user management are some of the valuable features in terms of security.

Permissions can be carefully assigned to specific users in order to comply with your governance and security policies. Authorized users can create schemas in predefined database connections. The dashboard designer determines what fields will be presented and prompt to the dashboard users in your unique WriteBack scenario.
