Controller for running a workflow only when the previous workflow is done

Alteryx Partner

The "block until done" tool works for a data stream level, which is saying when the last record comes, then the following procedures run.

 

But now the case is I am using a lot of "conditional run", I need to make sure a workflow starts running only when the previous workflow is finished, instead of parallel running. How can I do that?

Hi @Tankitaz 

 

You're probably looking for one of @MarqueeCrew 's solutions: the Runner Macros.

 

This topic explains it well how to use them.

Hi Thableaus,

 

Thanks for your answer, now I am using "conditional runner", but the workflows are parallel running even I put them into a chain, how can I change that?

 

I have over 10 workflows which take me over 6 hours to run the, so use the built- in "Events" can be too tedious and risky(forget to change/updates).

Have you tried to use a Block Until Done after each Runner Macro.

 

Cheers,
