Is the Alteryx Schedule on My Computer option not available with Designer 14-day trial?

5 - Atom

Hi,

 

I had an option to schedule the workflow on My Computer with the Alteryx Designer 14-day trial that I had used 1 month back.

 

My colleague has recently downloaded the Alteryx Designer 14-day Trial and she is unable to find the option.

 

Is that option excluded from the trial offering?

 

Please share the details.

 

Thanks,

Krishna

Scheduling is an additional license that is not included in the trial. Your company may already have access to an Alteryx Server where you can schedule your workflows. I would recommend reaching out to the Account Executive who assists your company for additional licensing information.

Hi Brandon,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

So, you mean to say the trial doesn't include the Designer + Desktop Automation feature?

 

Has it recently been removed from the trial version by any chance?

 

Because I have used that option to schedule a workflow on My computer when I used 14-day trial last month.

 

That is why looking for clarification.

 

Thanks again!

Krishna

As far as I know it is not included in the 14 day trial at this time.

Hi Brandon,

 

I have the fully purchased Alteryx + Desktop Scheduler license and yet this "Computer" option is also missing for me.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

@Langs your issue is most likely a different one. Do you have the admin version installed? This is required for the service to run properly. If you do have the admin version installed you may need to set up your Run As user in Options -> Advanced Options -> System Settings. If you don't see this menu you likely do not have the admin version installed. If you do see the system settings you most likely just need to set up the Run As user.

@BrandonB thanks for getting back to me. I do have the admin version installed. The Run As user is setup, and I can view the System Settings menu.

 

I have also validated that the desktop scheduler license is valid.

 

I notice that the Alteryx Service is not currently running. Am I under the correct assumption that this will not be running until something is scheduled?

Ok I managed to fix it with some fiddling. I changed around quite a few of the related system settings but no matter what, when starting the Alteryx Service it would stop itself a moment later.

 

Restarted the PC and it started fine automatically. Now the "My Computer" option appears!
