How to change folder browse to file browse for analytic app

9 - Comet

I've been trying for a couple hours on this, but can't quite get it. This workflow looks in a directory, imports all the Tableau workbook files, and spits out all the meta-data about said files. It works just fine for me(or any user) on their local desktop Designer.


Issue: I want to deploy this to our organization in the gallery so people without Alteryx can use it.; however, the macro has a folder browse tool; which is not allowed in the gallery. I want to change that to a single file browse tool, but can't get it to work.


Thanks for any help!

I figured it out. All I did was open the macro inside of the app and modify that so it imports a file instead of embedding a macro inside of the app.
