It’s not for the faint of heart. I suggest using CloudBase.

Contact Debbie, she is great.

Emma -

There are a bunch of options (eg quNECT, Amazon RedShift, APIs) for linking Quick Base to Tableau.  What's best depends on a few things:
  • The version of Tableau that you are using
  • How much data is involved
  • What (if any) other data source you are using
  • Whether you need to transform (re-arrange) the data to make the viz' you want
CloudBase Services can recommend options and integrate the system.  In the end, you will have data automatically flowing from QuickBase into Tableau AND Tableau graphs on your Quick Base dashboards.

Reach out to CloudBase Services through our website.

And, thanks, Your Quick Base Coach!

Not sure about cloudbase as I haven't used it, but using Qunect, you can create an ODBC connection to QuickBase. Then you can connect to that ODBC connection with Tableau to read the data and generate the reports in Tableau. Another way, is to export the data from QuickBase to CSV files and then use them as your data source in Tableau.
