Designer | Accessibility & Usability Features - We'd Love Your Feedback!


Hello Fellow Alteryxians! 


The Accessibility Team here at Alteryx has recently developed some new features that will allow assistive technology users as well as anyone else, to navigate and manipulate elements of Designer using only the keyboard. We are very excited about these new features and those further on the horizon, but we need feedback! 


Who we're primarily looking for:

- Users who regularly use keyboard commands to navigate.

- Users of assistive technology

- Users that want/need to build workflows quickly


The above are definitely not hard requirements, if you've got the time and the inclination, we'd love to hear what you think! 


If you're interested in providing feedback on keyboard navigation features or assistive technology features either now or in the future please contact me here or at accessibility@alteryx.com 


Any feedback is appreciated! 


Thank you!

Will engage with the team internally to see if there's any feedback relevant.

I came to the Community to Post a recommendation for Keyboard Navigation. I found this post first so I will post my recommendation here. 



If it doesn't already exist, Alteryx should add a hotkey to 'Set Focus and Zoom' to a currently selected tool. 


Use Case:

With Larger workflows, an error or a message may pop up in the result pane. When a message is clicked often the related tool is selected but it is not always visually identified. A quick hotkey to zoom and set visual focus on the tool would be helpful in understanding where a tool is located relative to the workflow as a whole.
