What's a good data dashboard tool that can leverage the Canvas API?

So at the last InstructureCon, I learned a lot about using the Canvas API and what it can do for us. Manually running reports using the different API calls is working okay for us for the time being, but I would really love to see if we can setup a data dashboard where frequently-accessed data is always visible. We are a Banner school, and we use Argos to pull Banner reports. I mention that because Argos is an example of something I would like, but obviously for Canvas.

Anyone have any recommendations on online tools that can be used to set something like this up? I've heard of tools like Zoho or Tableau, but I don't know enough about this space to know if they'd be compatible with the Canvas API. Thank you for any insight you may have!

 @hugoaguilera-mt , greetings! If you're getting into the API rabbit hole, I'd recommend joining the Canvas Developers‌ area of the Community. They are the ones who really do the deep diving with the Canvas API and should be able to help answer your question. I went ahead and shared this post with the Developer group, so for now, you're good to go but might want to check out the resources and information in the Developer group. 🙂
