The best dashboards incite action

Tableau dashboards are all about communicating information through data, and the best dashboards incite action. However, users must leave the dashboard to edit and refresh the source data, but not anymore. Anvil X by Anvil enables dashboard developers to extend their Tableau dashboards with Python, so users can adjust and enhance inputs directly in the dashboard.

Tableau with Anvil X

Typically, extending Tableau dashboards requires web developers and a serious budget. Anvil X lowers the barrier to entry and dashboard developers can build what they need right into their visualization using the Python skills they have today.
