Table tool is perhaps my most used. The email tool I see as extremely powerful.
I have what I see as a great use case for the reporting tools in Alteryx.
Within our company we encourage our employees to create and share content on Twitter. We also want our employees to share content of their co-workers. As a result it would be ideal if everyone followed everyone else on the different social channels we have.
On a weekly schedule we run a Alteryx workflow that generates, for each person in our company, a list of people they are not following. We generate a table and then share this table with each employee using the email tool.
I think there are usecases for sure. Those instances where clients just want to create there Tableau in Excel style we may push back and say, lets do your data prep in Alteryx, but lets not shoehorn everything into Tableau and we can use Alteryx to generate your excel file.
Ultimately the biggest advantage is mass reporting in my opinion; and a lot of people still prefer an excel or PDF over Tableau so we have to cater for all different audience types.
