Is anyone sending data from Looker to external visualization tools like Geckoboard? In my organization, we need to display certain high-level metrics like KPIs on an information radiator. We need these metrics to refresh automatically when the underlying data changes.


We currently use Geckoboard, but its visualization options are quite limited. Visualization options like funnel charts are not available to be configured on Geckoboard.


Are any of you Looker users/developers sending data from Looker to a tool like Geckoboard? How about another automatic information-radiator solution, with richer visualization options?

Let me know if there’s any other detail I can help with!


Cheers
