1. What is the general goal of the feature?
With a connector for OData sources, ODK Central could be configured as a data source in Google Data Studio (GDS). GDS seems similar to Tableau and MS Power BI.

2. What are some example use cases for this feature?
A non-technical user can connect GDS to ODK Central and generate reports and insight.
GDS could be a no-cost replacement for other proprietary GUI analytics platforms, such as Tableau.
Having a no-cost, fairly non-technical analytical platform available would make ODK Central more accessible.
3. What can you contribute to making this feature a reality?
This feature might be a great first issue for someone looking to get involved.
