Insight generation as text/ useful verbiage

Highlighted
Atom

Is there any functionality in Alteyrx which can be used to generate  automated text verbiages as in.. let's say my customer sales are declining by 5% in for a certain city.

 

Rather than just the figures can it generate some insights like - "your sales has decreased by 5% (5000 USD) for the month of May'18 for region - seattle"

 

Thanks in advance.

You can use the formula tool with a formula like this to build strings:

 

"your sales has decreased by "+tostring([Sales Decrease])+"% ("+tostring([Dollar amount])+" USD) for the month of "+[Date]+" for region - "+[Region]

 

Have attached a working example

Thanks a lot for the input, this is static process which you have mentioned. I wanted it be dynamic.. some form of AI attached to it

I think it would take a lot of effort to train an AI to produce that kind of output and I'd suspect it would be easier to create a number of pre-set static outputs and a set of static rules to decide which one to output. But I'd be interested if anyone else has any ideas.
