I'm new to this community but very happy to join. For a project on excel I want to automate the division of jobs among different teams. I have a column that labels each task as "daily" and I would like Alteryx to create a new column which counts the number of "daily" in the sheet and basically split the tasks among 8 teams. The final output would be another column in which of the tasks are 80, the first 10 raws would contain "group1", the next 10 "group 2" and so on.
I'm still new to Alteryx so thanks a lot for the help!
Without knowing anything about your dataset other than what you provided, I would connect a formula tool, do a Rand() function on the "status", then connect a sort tool and sort on the random field (doesn't matter if it's ascending or descending since it's random). This will provide a truly random ordering of your data. Then connect a tile tool with an "equal records" method where the number of tiles = 8. The resulting Tile_Num field will be your Team Numbers that each record is assigned to.
@Pingu -It's always a good thing to offer a solution! There's usually many ways to accomplish the same goal in Atleryx . That's how you learn - if you had not posted, you wouldn't have seen my response. The Tile Tool is a great little lesser-known tool that doesn't get enough love. It can do a whole lot! Cheers!
