Salesforce supports many standard and custom tables. To help you get started and save time, Tableau has grouped commonly used Salesforce tables as standard joins. Select accounts, leads, tasks, or another standard join. Or select a single table or a custom join from multiple tables. These quick connections make it easy to create Salesforce reports quickly.
With Salesforce + Tableau, you can really get a holistic view of your prospects, sales pipeline, accounts, and sales performance.

Tableau is for everyone in your organization. In sales departments, we’re used by inside sales, field sales, sales executives, and channel managers, along with colleagues in sales operations, finance, and marketing.
Tableau imports a Salesforce extract into the Tableau fast in-memory data engine. This allows you to explore your sales data at the speed of thought by easy drag & drop. To work with new data, click to refresh the extract or schedule automatic updates.
Avoid application programming interface (API) quotas by reusing extracts for your entire team. Enable colleagues with more restricted Salesforce API permissions to benefit.

Within the data-access boundaries set by your IT department, salespeople make and customize their own do-it-yourself web dashboards, securely accessible from any computer or tablet.
