Be able to “PIN” favorite workflows

Not sure I'd call this a user setting, but I couldn't figure out the right heading this belongs to. 

 

When opening files, there are often times a couple of files at that aren't run on any kind of schedule or set time frame but you come back to when you need to run them.  

 

There should be a way to set "FAVORITES" for a handful of files that you find yourself referring to on a repeated basis, but too far back to be on the 'recents' list because you open too many other files.

I would love to see a feature like this. 

I'm in/out of at least 20 workflows per day and the larger projects soon disappear from the recent list. 

A menu item within the 'File' menu for 'Pinned Workflows' would definitely help this, even if it was limited to 10/20 workflows.

Really like this idea - actually had that thought in passing yesterday!

@severhart yeah, same. It's such an obvious thing and hopefully an easy fix.

Hey @Watermark - agree  with the idea, and we see this commonly too.

 

The way we work around this (although I still support your idea) is to tech people how to use "jumplists" on the windows taskbar.
Once you pin Alteryx to your taskbar, you can then drag files onto it, and pin them - and that way when you right click on Alteryx in your taskbar, you'll have a list of these pinned flows.

@SeanAdams , Good work around, I can't say I was aware of that.
