Headshot of article author Theresa Palmer

Ziosk, makers of the first entertainment, ordering, and pay-at-the-table tablet for the restaurant market, gives guests interactive control over their dining experience. Now with this initial release of the Ziosk Survey Analytics content pack for Power BI, restaurants with Ziosk tablets have unparalleled access to insights provided by Ziosk survey data, including segmentation by day, location, employee, and more.


This post will explain how this integration can help you explore and monitor your Ziosk data. For additional details on how to get started, please see the Ziosk Survey Analytics content pack for Power BI help page.


To connect to the content pack, simply sign in to your Ziosk account. Once the connection is complete, Power BI automatically creates a dashboard, report, and dataset with your Ziosk data.

The out-of-the-box dashboard offer an overview of available insights, and you can select any of the tiles to drill down into the 10 pages of reports with additional details.

For example, selecting the Yesterday’s Performance tile will bring to you to a report page that has an overview of all the survey results from the last day.


Here you can see the ratings for speed, greeting, quality, and more. It also includes a comparison across national and regional ratings, as well as a breakdown by employee. The report allows you to hover over the visualizations to see additional details and use the slicers on the right to drill down further.

In each report you can switch to edit mode, where you can edit or add additional visuals to your reports. On the right-hand side of the screen, you’ll see a list of all the tables and fields to which you have access. Select a visual to see the fields included, and use the Fields or Format tabs to further customize the visual.


From any of the reports you can pin visualizations and tiles to the dashboard by hovering over them and selecting the pin icon. Pinning the visuals will prompt you to select a destination dashboard, allowing you to create a dashboard with metrics from multiple sources.

After the initial import, the dashboard and the reports continue to update daily, and you can control the refresh schedule on the dataset. With the Ziosk Survey Analytics content pack for Power BI, restaurants get an unprecedented amount of data that they can turn into useful daily insights that will transform their businesses.
