Custom Field in Meta Info

Hi, I'm pretty new to Alteryx so I didn't understand when you would want to use a Custom File Name in the Meta Info tab of Workflow Configuration since the name of the file name remains the same even if you use a Custom Workflow name.

Hi @youngk313 ,

 

This is useful for Macros,

 

for example, on the Macro below my workflow as very long file name.

When I try to insert the Macro on a new Workflow, the long name appears:

but if I use a custom name, then:

the custom name will appear:

and if you saved the macro on your default MyMacros folder, then it becomes available on the MyMacros ribbon with the custom name as well:

hope it helps!!!
