How to Export Shopify Data to Tableau


1. Create Data Source


Initially, you need to create a data source for data you want to export from your Shopify store to your Tableau. You can do it by accessing the Data source page inside the Tableau Connector for Shopify.

You have to name your data source, adjust auto-refresh, and filter the tables you’d like to be in your data source.
