Any way to load SHP files using Analytic Apps?

I got a requirement to load SHP Files using analytic apps on a Gallery.  Is there any way to do this?

@lancesee,

 

I would suggest for help from the Community to provide the exact requirement as well as what you have attempted so far. I am not quite understanding your requirement. Were are you loading these SHP files from and to. Why would you want to use a Gallery app? Alteryx is not a product that should be used to just move files.

 

Here some information for your review.

Thanks for the reply.  I found my answer.  Apparently SHP files can be loaded within Analytic Apps.  It's just that they need to be zipped and the read format needs to be set to Alteryx Database.  Also, it only seems to work on apps published on the Gallery.  Doesn't seem to work on Alteryx Designer alone.
