While being unexperienced in developing extensions, there were already some tickets that I could work on. One issue was allowing users in the Tableau Mail Scheduler to set multiple users as admin.
It was an easy, but long overdue feature but it’s available now!
Another open feature was for the Dashboard Usage extension to allow Tableau users to send custom metrics and dimensions to Google Analytics. Managers can track and follow Calculated Fields within sheets and dashboards. Example: on Tableau server you can create a calculated fields for the current logged in user. This allows end-users to track for example user usage, or dashboard usage.
In many cases multiple data values (within the result of the sheet or selected marks) are selected. These data values will be joined/concatenate together with a separator and sent to Google Analytics!
