Salesforce Wave Connector – The new salesforce add-on for excel transforms an Excel spreadsheet into tables, charts and interactive graphs in the Salesforce Analytics Cloud. The Wave Connector can be easily understood. It helps create pivot tables, macros and visualizations. Using the wave connector, one can create datasets directly from the excel data.
