In a file input or output tool, you can use %temp%myfile.yxdb. That is the Alteryx temp directory, not the users or the global temp, but it always makes a unique subfolder for each run, so it will never conflict with another user.
In a formula tool, you can use [Engine.TempFilePath] to get the same folder.
