Yes, SeekTable offers free fully-functional personal accounts (all data source connectors are available), and we don't plan to remove them in the future.
With paid subscriptions you can unlock advanced SeekTable features:
It is possible to share your cubes and/or reports with your team members using team-sharing feature:
You can easily evaluate this feature with a free 14-day trial: just click on "Share to team" and then activate your trial. If you need more time to test team sharing functionality feel free to contact us.
SeekTable is a data visualization/reporting tool, and it expects that data is already in the form that is suitable for that. Databases often store well-normalized data and you can use them as data sources directly (without any additional ETL); however, CSV files may contain incomplete/raw data that needs cleaning/enrichment or another tranformations. Typical case is when dataset represented by many CSV files: SeekTable needs a single CSV file and you have to combine these CSVs somehow on your side before upload.
For this purpose you can use Easy Data Transform: this is a desktop app (Win/Mac OS) where you can perform various data tranformations using GUI without need to write a code. The tool has a free 7-days trial period.
In case of live data sources (database, or auto-refreshed CSV) you might want to automate report generation on schedule (daily, weekly etc) and get a report with newest values directly to your email inbox (or Slack/Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive etc), without the need to open SeekTable app. This is possible in one of the following ways:
In some cases you cannot use SeekTable as a cloud service for number of reasons - say, in case of sensitive data that should not leave your company's intranet or your local computer (or when your DB is not accesible from internet at all).
You still can use reporting functionality provided by a
self-hosted SeekTable version which is distributed in the form of docker images.
SeekTable can be installed on any Linux server that is supported by Docker (Kubernetes is also suitable for this purpose).
If you're looking for embedded pivot tables as a component take a look to the PivotData microservice - this is reporting engine used by SeekTable. It includes web pivot builder example that can be integrated into any web application.
Cloud SeekTable is English-only, however in case of self-hosted version you can modify/translate
UI labels to your native language (German, Spanish, French, Polish, Russian etc).
Note that this capability requires a subscription for white-label mode.
Technically UI localization is performed by editing of the JSON configuration (key-value pairs) in the admin area.
Web API is available for the following actions:
This API may be used directly or in a code-less way via Zapier/Power Automate.
In some cases you might want to keep reports created by CSV data in sync with:
This kind of automation is possible with Zapier or Microsoft Power Automate. Or you can write your own shell script and use SeekTable web API directly - say, with curl or your favorite programming language.
For now SeekTable doesn't have built-in connector for Google Analytics data. However, we already investigated technical possibility of this and GA connector may be implemented for live reporting with the following limitations:
If you're interested in SeekTable connector for Google Analytics please contact us.
If this database is SQL-compatible and it has an ODBC driver for Linux (or ADO.NET provider) we can add it to the list of supported connectors upon request. Examples of databases that may be potentially used with SeekTable:
Most BI tools are read-optimized and do not provide database writeback capability. SeekTable's primary purpose is data exploration, data visualization and reporting so it is also designed for read-only access to the data source.
However sometimes writebacks might be really useful for reports consumers:
At this moment it is possible to have writebacks SeekTable reports only when they are embedded (via iFrame) and this requires some coding on the host app side. Technically this can be implementd via HTML formatting capabilities: generate links inside your reports that 'call' iFrame parent's function to open appropriate record form (that should be fully implemented on your side).
Alternatively, we're working on built-ion seamless writeback capability that can be configured in a no-code way to cover use-cases mentioned above. If you're interested in SeekTable's writebacks please contact us
SeekTable consists of two web applications:
As a business app SeekTable is rather conservative in this question and supports even legacy versions of web browsers:
