Using Tableau with Donorfy


Tableau allows you to create visualisations based on your data. You can download a trial version of Tableau to evaluate it before you decide whether to buy it - or you can use the public version which is free.



The data API Odata link is a Professional-only feature. Essential subscribers, please contact us to find out more about upgrading.


Tableau will retrieve data via the Donorfy Data Service, to use the data service you will need to find your System API key - see this article for help with that.

To use this feature your Donorfy sign-in needs access to the Donorfy Data Service - see this article for help managing user permissions.
