Designer | Accessibility & Usability Features - We'd Love Your Feedback!


Hello Fellow Alteryxians! 


The Accessibility Team here at Alteryx has recently developed some new features that will allow assistive technology users as well as anyone else, to navigate and manipulate elements of Designer using only the keyboard. We are very excited about these new features and those further on the horizon, but we need feedback! 


Who we're primarily looking for:

- Users who regularly use keyboard commands to navigate.

- Users of assistive technology

- Users that want/need to build workflows quickly


The above are definitely not hard requirements, if you've got the time and the inclination, we'd love to hear what you think! 


If you're interested in providing feedback on keyboard navigation features or assistive technology features either now or in the future please contact me here or at 


Any feedback is appreciated! 


Thank you!

Not a keyboard issue, but I would love to see the Interactive Videos have an option in settings to reduce playback speed to .75


Thank you

I am a regular excel user . I think the shortcuts should be some what fimilar with excels style of short cuts.

Additional accessibility is definitely exciting to me, even as somebody who does not use assistive technology. From purely an efficiency perspective, I look forward to seeing how keyboard commands/shortcuts can be integrated! We already see a big push to save fractions of seconds at a time while using excel in the workplace, so it should not be surprising that there is a push for this on other technologies too.

I'm excited to begin my Alteryx journey, particularly in the field of accounting, where data analytics and automation are essential. The anticipation of exploring something new and valuable is a great motivator, and I can't wait to learn all about it!
