Tableau Integration helps in processing data from AppFollow directly into Tableau via Web Data Connectors. Tableau is one of the most popular BI dashboards for data analysis and visualization. We offer a secure and easy way to gather data from AppFollow, such as Reviews & Replies, and Rankings, and transfer it to Tableau.

This is a premium feature. To get access to it, please contact your account manager or our Customer Support team.
