It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
I've got a bit behind, but so has everyone else except for "cixtor" (does anyone know who that is). Have others got behind because they are now stretching the limit of Alteryx or like me have plenty of other things to be doing so haven't got round to them yet?
@cgoodman3First, I don't know who that cixtor character is but I would be surprised if they're using Alteryx 🙂 Second, I've slowed down because Alteryx no longer seems like the right tool for the job. I've only been able to solve a couple problems with the help of @jdunkerley79's VarNum and VarText addins. I was able to setup a pure Alteryx approach, but the size of the problem wasn't conducive to that setup. By using the VarNum function, I was able to change my slow running macros to fast running generate rows. It's crazy how powerful alteryx can be in this setup. I was too intimidated to even attempt Days 15-17 after reading through the problems and trying to think through how I would setup my solution.
Other than 9-2, pretty much every problem reads like it is solvable in Alteryx.
I've slowed down because I've had plenty of other things to keep me occupied, and because the complexity of the prompts after day 11 has increased. I think, glancing at them, that I could probably come up with something in Alteryx for problems from days 12+, but I was mostly doing these as a side activity in the evenings and started finding myself spending more time reading the problems, which left me without much time to solve.
I might get back into solving this weekend, but I might also stay busy!
