I'm hoping someone here in the community might be able to provide me a primer on using AutoHotKey to schedule an Alteryx Script or Scripts.
I'm trying to achieve the following:
I have several scripts that need to be run in a particular sequence. I'm hoping that I can use AutoHotKey (or alternative product) to schedule the initial script and then have that initial script kickoff the next script when it terminates and have each successive script kickoff the following/next scripts until all scripts have executed. I have a total of 6 scripts that need to be run.
I do not have a Scheduler license or the Alteryx exe license that would enable me to run from the command line.
I have read the Poorman's Scheduler thread, but I still don't think I have a full understanding of using Autohotkey and other Alteryx tools to accomplish my objective. Also if anyone has enjoyed success using something other than Autohotkey I would welcome your input.
I've used AutoHotkey for over 8 years now. It does a lot of great things however this isn't one that I'd use it for.... Having said that, it can launch programs from the command line and wait for them to complete. If all you're trying to do is keep them sequential, then it could be a decent fit.
I'm not... I don't have Alteryx (but I've spent 20 years working with data) and I can't test anything automating it. I just know that , for scheduling things, AutoHotkey isn't a "wonderful" solution. Again, unless you're running things from the command line, then it could work
