Whenever you want to create a new data source, open the Tableau Connector for Shopify app and press the New Data Source
button. You will see a window where you will have to specify some details. First, enter a new data source name. Then add the data source description.
After that you will be asked to schedule data export. 4 options are available. Choose Disabled
if you want to activate it manually when needed. The Continuous
option allows preparing data constantly. Select Every day
to have your data source updated every day at the selected time. And if you choose Weekly
, the data source will be updated only once a week on the selected day and time.
Now you can choose which Store data you want to export. Here is a list of field types available for export to Tableau:
- Product Variants
- Product Images
- Draft Orders
- Inventory Items
- Payments Transactions
- Custom Collections
- Smart Collections
Each of these field types also consists of many different fields. You just need to click on a specific field type (eg "Orders") to see the full list of fields related to Orders and available for export.
