One of the things I love about Alteryx is how fast it pushes data through a workflow. However, sometimes, we need to run one part of a workflow before another. In other words, we want to control the order of operations in Alteryx. I knew the application could do this, but to incorporate it into my workflow, I had to learn a few new tools. Read on to learn which tools allow you to control the order of operations in a workflow.
This is post 9 in my series on how to learn the Spotfire expression language. It explains the Parent and ParallelPeriod node navigation methods. Originally, I included NavigatePeriod, but NavigatePeriod deserves its own post, so it will follow next week. Read on to learn about Parent and ParallelPeriod node navigation methods.
This is post 8 in my series on learning the Spotfire expression language. We are in the middle of exploring all of the node navigation methods. This post will cover FirstNode, LastNode, LastPeriods, PreviousPeriod and NextPeriod. I’m combining these particular methods in order to differentiate between Node, Period, and Periods. Read on to learn the difference.
The more I learn about Alteryx, the more I love it as a tool for data wrangling. I recently had 2 use cases pop up where I needed to be able to dynamically change the data being queried. I knew the application could perform this task, but I hadn’t yet learned how to create a dynamic query in Alteryx. Now that I know how I’m writing it up for future reference and other people to use. Two use cases are presented because they are configured differently. Read on to learn how.
