@michele - This is TheBomb.Com - Great work! Just setup and used the emailing feature to run through my GSuite accounts and it worked like a charm. Most impressive part (for me, at least) is that that this didn't require any Run Commands or batch files or "step-child" programming. Just some simple POSTs in the download tool. Kudos!
we got to know each other in the 2017 Alteryx Conference in London. I'm not sure if you recall.
This Macro is really great!
I've just used it to create a prototype which sends an alert to our users based on certain rules and data that we managed in Alteryx. Really cool and easy how you guys implemented the authentication for Google.
By the way: I didn't know but you need to authenticate an email within the "gmail" domain for the API call to work. At the beginning, I tried with my google account that has my company e-mail as primary email, but it doesn't work. Maybe obvious if you are in the matter, but for me it wasn't.
as of now, there's no way to attach multiple files to the email. You can use the run command tool to create a zip file containing the attachments - I know it's not the same as attaching multiple files, but it could be a good workaround.
This is a great tool, but it looks like I am getting an error when sending out to about 80 people. It says "Tool # 10: There were more than 16 records in the source". It did send out the first 17, but not any of the others. Is there a limiter in the macro? Thanks!
ConvError: Gmail (1): Tool #77: Error message: Invalid value. at character position: 0
The error seems to be coming from the JSON parse tool (tool #77) which seems to be attempting to parse an error message
I wonder if the issue might be related to 2-factor authentication? For example to send emails via gmail's SFTP from my Tableau server I need to provide a one-time application password (https://myaccount.google.com/u/1/apppasswords)
