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.

I haven’t written very much about Alteryx, although I do now use it EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’ve been hesitant because the Alt Nation Community is fabulous. I struggle with the utility of publishing my own content when it’s not likely to register in search results. However, I frequently write just for myself. And, it pays off. This week I referred back to a Spotfire post I wrote over 2 years ago. Therefore, I’m writing about a problem I ran into this week with scheduling an Alteryx workflow to run on the last business day of the month. If this is a problem you’ve run into, read on.
