Arria for Tableau

Use Arria’s extension for Tableau to augment your dashboard with meaningful, automatically-generated narrative insights to support decision making beyond visuals alone.

Take a look at the video introduction, and see below to get the extension and its accompanying documentation. We also offer showcase projects, so you can see the Arria extension in action.

OPTIONS FOR CREATING NARRATIVES

With Arria’s extension, you get three options for adding narratives to your dashboard:

  • Configuring narratives. This option uses our out-of-the-box narratives, and lets you tell the extension what it needs to know to automatically generate reports from your dataset.

  • Extending narratives. This option allows you to quickly customize our out-of-the-box narratives by revising narrative scripts in NLG Studio and linking to them using the advanced feature of the Create Custom Narrative option.

  • Creating custom narratives. This option gives you the most flexibility, and enables you to create your own custom narratives for specific use cases, with the full programmability of NLG Studio.
