Data Cleansing Tool -> Delete Null Rows & Columns

There are few workarounds for this task, but it would be really very easy if Data Cleansing Tool could delete Null Rows and Null Columns. After all its just a macro which can be modified and re-packaged into Alteryx Designer.


Currently, to delete a null row requires multiple columns validation for common Null attributes,

similarly to delete a null column every column has to be compared on a row-level and flagged for removal. Both of these approaches are clumsy.


Wouldn't it be so simple if Data Cleansing Tool gave such check boxes !!!

Can you ask the developers to add the new checkboxes per the original request? Would be a lot easier for new users.

i agree with hdtruong.

I agree, adding an option to delete the rows where a field contains a null would be extremely useful. 


i.e., if any row that has a 0 in the amount column, that row then gets deleted.

Totally agree adding this option.

Here here. This would be a great add for data cleansing.

This would be so helpful!

Hope the Alteryx Developers are working on this issue already. I just solved same problem using a filter tool, but this is only practicable for tables with few columns. The gymnastic with transposing and re-joining is likewise clumsy, we truely need the checkboxes in the cleansing Tool.
