Can't really tell if you've clicked the Like button already...

Seems like it goes from a dark grey to a light black. 

And the tooltip always shows "Like"

 

Please change the Liked object to blue; like when you hover over it. 

And also update the tooltip for Liked objects to say "Unlike".

We are implementing 19.2 of Connect after trialling 19.1. Our users are missing seeing the Search option and when I look back at the old version it seems much more obvious than from the 19.2 version. It would be good to have the search much more obvious from a UI perspective.

Hi, 

 

I understand it is possible to integrate the users from active directory into Connect but there is no functionality to import actual user groups. Is that something that can be added to the roadmap?

 

Thanks

Michal

Alteryx notifies thumbs up but does not notify the owner of a thumbs down.... We think this makes sense to have as consistent so that the owner can follow up on issues with the asset, and/or have it removed.

When we were demo'd Alteryx Connect, I am positive that the person demonstrating said that users would be notified of @ mentions. Turns out this is not the case (https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Connect-Discussions/Tagging-people-in-comments-is-broken-in...)

 

Given that the Connect brochure promotes the "familiar social interactions" I find this super puzzling that tagging people in does not do what pretty much any other social tool does - let the person know that they have been tagged into the conversation.

This would be a great improvement for Connect.

 

We spend hours on structuring the content within Alteryx Connect so that it serve all users.

We group schemas and databases into themes like "Sales", "Finance", "HR" and so on.

This makes it very easy for users to find what data we have available.

The same we do for workflows, macros and other content.

 

The problem is that our metadata loaders run every day to make sure our data is up-to-date.

Each run resets custom grouping. Making organizing content totally pointless.

Can we have about me section in the profile? just add a description box. This will allow people to add their expertise and more information about themselves.

I like the concept of the Interactive charts tool but it seems overtly cumbersome to use when you are trying to perform simple changes to a line graph.  The chart tool was much easier.  I like the direction the interactive tool is going but I should not have to edit the tools xml to display point values on a line graph.

When reading in multiple files/tabs with different field schema, there will be an error. It can be done by using macro. It would be great if there is a tool to read in all.

A lot of information is not captured when colleagues run numerous SQL codes on server. Oracle, SQL Server, Azure and others...

Would there be a clever way of capturing and archiving all this queries run?

 

It may be wise to collect these for several reasons;

  1. SQL code profiling is an important matter especially for DB admins. You can see the most required tables and fields etc.
  2. Also have a grasp on most frequent and time consuming joins to enhance DB performance
  3. Figure the queries that can be replicated in Alteryx and deployed to a server so that no business user needs to run SQL code instead  they will be reverted to the gallery.

 

So found out a similar feature is now available in SQL Server 2016 -->  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/performance/monitoring-performance-by-usin...  

 

 

Certified objects should appear in the top of any search.

 

Today it has no effect on the search if a object is certified. Certified objects should be boosted in the search.

 

In the administration console, Connect configuration, search boost it should be possible to ad weight to certified objects

Our users should primary look for certified objects. How ever the advanced search does not have the possibility to search for certified objects.

PowerBI Report Server is now offered as an on-prem solution. It would be great if there was a loader available to capture PowerBI reports not in Azure. If this could also capture SSRS reports which also reside on the PowerBI Report Server this would also be very beneficial.

Hello All,

 

We are new to Alteryx and we could see that the Supported Data Sources from IBM are of below :

  • IBM DB2
  • IBM Netezza/Pure Data Systems
  • IBM SPSS

How about adding IBM Sterling to this?

We want Alteryx to support connection with IBM Sterling OMS which will help the Business requirements

Can anyone post some suggestions on this? How we can connect to Sterling?

 

Thanks,

Praveen C

Hello,

 

I'd like to suggest a "view as" on each page (like facebook) or a clear identifier that only certain people can view page. 

 

As an admin, I have to set permission setting for different group. It would be helpful to clearly see the permission setting as sometimes I forgot. 

 

Thank you.

If you remove the configuration of the SMTP server while you are in development, (the current solution to spamming users with notifications during the setup period of the data catalog) then put the SMTP server configuration back in when you are finished setup, all the changes that have happened in the interim will not be sent as a bulk send. This a risk when an email server is unavailable for a period of time that notifications for changes/comments/tasks will be missed.

 

Once the ability to switch notifications on and off is implemented, I think it would be worth reviewing how feasible this is.

The email notifications that are received are not easily marked or flagged/prefixed as coming from Alteryx. I expect that this may be on purpose so that data owners can't "hide" from changes/comments on their areas of expertise, but from a time management point of view, it would be good to be able to flag them in some way so that a rule can be run on them in the users inbox, and they can batch up their reviews/answers.

Unavailability of Connect during H2 DB backup (using backup button in administration console as described in documentation - https://help.alteryx.com/connect/current/Administration/DBBackup.htm?tocpath=Administer%7C_____8) while even View is not possible, no matter the capacity of Java Virtual Maschine, can be limiting while large number of data is stored (so backup and following rerun takes a lot of time).

Hello...We've found that when we assign an alternative name to an asset, the alternative name becomes the first name listed, and the main name becomes listed within parenthesis. Could this be reversed? As it's always best to have the main name of the asset listed first, then any alternative names/alias to be listed within the parenthesis. It creates visual order having it displayed this way. We've ended up not utilizing the alternative name functionality to avoid any confusion for our users. 

 

Currently - CustyID, CID(CUSTOMER_ID)

 

Request - CUSTOMER_ID(CustyID, CID)

 

Thanks!

Connect currently provides lineage for a datasource at the table level but we would like to be able to have this at a more granular level i.e. the column level so if a specific column changes in the table (e.g. data type change), we are notified of the change and able to identify quickly assets that will be affected.
