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!
Way too often we will have complex workflows that might have dozens of containers and after opening many of them in the process of troubleshooting it makes cleanup very tedious.
This is a decent enough workaround but I think the 'collapse all containers' function needs to be added to Designer. My biggest objection is that opening the workflow as text has a much greater risk of workflow corruption through some random fat-finger typo.
Maybe in the submenu when right-clicking on any container?
I ran into this exact same issue today when making edits to a large workflow with 15 containers that house outputs I didn't want running. This is a mild annoyance, but an annoyance either way.
