Can reports / maps be rendered in Alteryx Gallery from a Macro?

Asteroid

Hi,

 

I'm wondering if it is possible to have a report or a map render in the gallery but from a macro. I can't get it to work. 

 

An example would be - you have an app that does some calculations and passes data to a macro. I want the macro to render the report, not the app itself.

Hi Chris,

 

Can you post an example? Without one, I'm wondering if the challenge is with the way the Report Tool is rendering. Again, hard to make a call, but I'd check if it renders to a temporary file (how I'd set it up)

 

Cheers!

The workflow is extremely complex but I can write a simple example. 

 

We are calculating signal contours for radio (how far a radio signal reaches) using a batch macro. We'll put through several signals at a time through the macro. 

 

What I'd like to do is render a map of the contours or signal reach once the batch marco is complete. Since the app needs to process multiple signals, and one at a time (through the macro), it doesn't seem like putting a map / report render tool in the macro would work. 

 

Any ideas on how to render the final results?
