Hello All,

I am new here and to the Alteryx ecosystem but passionately want to learn the Alteryx ecosystem starting with Designer so the gurus here can just some good books on the Alteryx Designer.

Hi @kvssetty I would say one of the greatest things about Alteryx is that they provide so many resources to learn via the Alteryx Academy for free that I would always start their first.

The main tabs that you must know is:

       Focus in: Formula, Filter, Select, Data Cleansing Multi-Row Formula and Unique

-Join (all except Fuzzy)

      Focus in: Join and Union

-Parse (DateTime and Text to columns)
