WYSIWYG Raporting is desperately needed...

porWYSIWYG - What you see is what you get...


WYSIWYG implies a user interface that allows the user to view something very similar to the end result while the document is being created.[3] In general, WYSIWYG implies the ability to directly manipulate the layout of a document without having to type or remember names of layout commands.[4]


Looking forward to have such a Reporting layout designer, embed all pictures, tables, graphs, legend, header, footer...

Just like in Qliksense and tableau...









This was demonstrated at the Alteryx Inspire 2017 conference and should be coming very soon.

@StephenR is correct, and you have impeccable timing.


Visual Layout was released today into the lab in version 11.3 available at


A new Visual Layout tool makes it easy to arrange Reporting tool (non-grouped) elements on a page and visualize how the report will look. The Visual Layout tool accepts multiple inputs, provides a preview of report elements, offers multiple output types and page sizes, and allows for both a horizontal and vertical layout. This tool is in the Laboratory category and is not for production use. It may have documented known issues, may not be feature complete, and is subject to change.
