Add a configure button to the Sharepoint List In and Out tools. (w/o blanking list & view)

We extensively use the AWESOME functionality of SharePoint List Input and SharePoint List Output tools.  They're great!  BUT... they require valid credentials to pull back the valid list and view values.  Not normally an issue until you go to share your workflow.  If you strip out your credentials from Alteryx the List and view fields go blank, do it from the xml and when the person you share it with opens it up the fields go blank and you have to count on that user selecting the proper list and view.  


I propose to have these tools load valid lists and views only upon pressing a button or running the macro in initial configuration state.  

Found this

and we could use a macro tool but every implementation still requires storing a valid username and password to avoid the error and the list id which I imagine the sharepoint API requires and which is why the tool behaves the way it does is not easily obvious to most ppl.

Hi @ephij , we have a new version of the Sharepoint List input tool in Beta testing. Would you be willing to give it a try and let me know if this version works according to your expectation? 

Thank you,
