This guide describes how to create an external Dashboard integration in order to implement it in an online dashboard tool of your choosing.
The main purpose of this feature is to create a URL that can be embedded into an online dashboard of your choosing in order to display visualized dashboards to your customers, without the need to install the STG Studio, based on the data collected in STG.
This data source (URL) will be cached on the STG servers in order to allow better performance along with refreshed data.
Please note: you can use any of the offered online dashboard tools such as: klipfolio, tableau or any other online dashboard you are using.
Under the project navigate to the Tabulation node and open 'External Dashboards Integration'
on the following screen choose the survey you would like to create the online dashboard for and click on it
on the lower section of the page a list of all the survey variables will be shown
Choose the type of tabulation you would like to create:
- Regular Tabulation
- Cross Tabulation
Choose the questions you would like to show in the data source and click on 'Generate Links'
You will see 2 URLs
- Data URL - will include the data of the tabulation query you have chosen
- Structure URL - will include the structure of the tabulation query you have chosen
Copy the URL to your chosen online dashboard tool and create the data source (it will be shown like this for example)
To remove a link just click on the 'Remove' button on the right side of the links
- To login to this URL you will need your API key/user/password, please click here to contact our support if you do not have one.
- There is a limitation of 20 links per survey - you can monitor the totals next to the generate button
