Customized Visualizations in Tableau Server


Tableau has a vast library of visualizations for its community of users, however there are circumstances where certain use cases call for specialized visualizations that go beyond the capabilities of Tableau.

Up until now, another tool would build these visualizations only if the underlying data was able to be extracted separately. Another method was to embed the visualization in a separate web frame and access the underlying data to build a visualization using the Tableau JSAPI. Starschema has set about changing this with its new Custom Visualization Toolkit that is embedded directly into Tableau Dashboards using standard components  (namely WDC-s and Parameters in the dashboard).
