Upcoming Tableau WDC 3.0: Timeline for Smartsheet Connector Update?
Hello Smartsheet Community,
I am currently facing a challenge with the upcoming deprecation of Web Data Connector (WDC) 2.0, which impacts our integration of Smartsheet with Tableau. We have been using the Smartsheet-provided WDC available here: https://tableau.smartsheet.com/tableau. As I'm looking for guidance on how this change will affect our existing workflows.
I have a few specific questions:
- How will the existing Smartsheet-provided WDC function following the deprecation of WDC 2.0?
- What steps should we take to transition to WDC 3.0, especially considering our reliance on the Smartsheet WDC 2.0 and a preference for solutions that do not involve ODBC connectivity?
- Are there any resources, guides, or best practices particularly suited for users new to Tableau who are navigating this transition?
- Most importantly, when is Smartsheet planning to provide a Tableau connector compatible with WDC 3.0?
Any insights, advice, or information about the timeline for the release of an updated connector would be incredibly helpful. I appreciate any support and guidance the community can offer as we prepare to adapt to these changes.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
