Just as we can write a specific a SQL statement from SQL Server, it would be great to be able to write a SOQL statement from Salesforce objects.

Also, it would be great to be able to grab the underlying SOQL statements that generate specific Salesforce reports, so that the underlying report itself doesn't have to be maintained and the underlying SOQL in Power BI could "take over" and be modified accordingly.

This one is essential, and with all the SalesForce usage out there its incredible that it's still not available. Current connector is MUCH too limiting.

Over 5 years later and consistently commented that it is the most needed feature. What you thinking Microsoft? I started working with an organisation who use SalesForce, and my job is to implement an analytics tool. I have years of experience in PBI, but I will be looking into Tableau first thing tomorrow morning.

If MS does not do something in collaboration with SF then SF should drop the feature. It is not sustainable for anyone to have to download hundreds of thousands of rows with a ton of columns that you don't need. or to have to rely on incremental refresh. the alternative of a data warehouse is also too demanding.


Ideally, filters should be passed in the request.

Seems quite a lot users are suffering the SFDC connection, any voice from Microsoft please?

Need this for:

  1. Development and testing so I can reduce the data set size for better performance
  2. To work around the long query string issue (instead of GET, can a POST be used?)

J

feels like a no brainer for Microsoft in term of eating Tableau advantage with the most used CRM in the world

J

Don't understand how this is not yet available? I'm having to use an excel plug-in that can query Salesforce data using SOQL then push that sheet to Power BI...

Please add this

We need SOQL support otherwise we will use tableau CRM

J

This is a must as we have hundreds of tables and millions of records. By writing a specific query, we could limit the data right from the source and not use up all time and resources.
