We had a very exciting week last week with our first ever Virtual Inspire conference, debuting the latest release, Build Breakthroughs in 2021.2! We introduced built-in data cleansing in the Interactive Results Grid to fix issues with whitespace, missing values, on top of sorting and filtering. We also released a brand-new Platform Software Development Kit (SDK), and the Computer Vision tools in the Alteryx Intelligence Suite.
What is even more exciting is to share with you your ideas that were implemented into the product! We count on our users to give us ideas and suggestions to make the product better; after all,you’re using it every day and we want that experience to keep getting better.
Add Prefix to Field Names Focusthanks again to @Kenda – previously, when you used the 'Add Prefix to Field Names' option in the Select tool, the focus was on the checkbox. Now, it is inside the text box so you can start typing right away!
Right Click -> Create as Macrothanks to @KoryC – this feature has been a long time coming! Select all the tools that should be in the macro, right click, and have an option to "Convert to Macro." The optionprovides a prompt to choose an icon, change the file path of the new macro, then creates the new macro on your existing canvas, and opens the macro itself on a new canvas, while updating the necessary macro inputs and outputs automatically.
Error message lookup thanks to @MarqueeCrew - as of the 2021.1 stable release, and 2021.2, we are now making many of the most common error messages in the output log into clickable links that open associated Community KnowledgeBase articles. We are starting to update the error messages themselves for clarity, and actively working to add more error message links in upcoming releases.
