Is there a variable such as %temp% but gives windows user's temp path instead the global temp folder?

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.
