Two weeks ago, I wrote this post on how to make workflow development more efficient with user constants. It didn’t take long before I ran into limitations with user constants. But, where user constants failed, the Alteryx Detour tool overcame. Read on to learn how the Alteryx Detour tool can speed up workflow development.
dynamic query tool
Yay! I learned to build batch macros this week! I’ve wanted to tackle batch macros for quite some time but I didn’t have any use cases. This week two use cases popped up. In my first use case, I feed a dynamic query with a batch macro. More specifically, I feed a list of wells into the dynamic query. I’ll show you how to do this in blog and video. Read on to learn more.
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.
