It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
Maybe you've been using Alteryx for a long, long time. Or maybe you're like me - relatively new to the tool and doing everything you can to learn all the things. After passing the Designer Core certification and setting my sights on prepping for the Designer Advanced, I realized one of the things limiting me is that there are so many tools at my disposal that I simply don't get exposed to.
Yes, absolutely, the weekly challenges are fantastic for learning and practicing new tools - but if you're challenging yourself to complete those challenges without looking at others' solutions first, it may not stick quite the same way.
I'm a more systematic learner so I wanted a way to work through all of the tools and be able to (1) recognize them visually by their icon alone, and (2) know at least the base level description for each tool across the platform. So I kicked it old school and threw together some flash cards for tools in Alteryx Designer.
Hopefully these prove useful for at least one other person on the community who wants to nerd it up with a little studying to accelerate their recognition of the Alteryx tool set.
Tool Palettes Included:
If you print two-sided the cards' front and back should automatically align. Print them out on some cardstock and you've got some nice flash cards you can use personally or share with your team!
P.S. - If you notice any issues with the file please let me know and I'll try to revise as soon as I can.
P.P.S. - If anyone is aware of an already existing set of these, feel free to point them out -- I looked and had seen where a small set was created a few years ago but not in the format I was looking for with the icon on one side and name/palette/description on the other.
Justin, these are really quite a resource - thank you! Have you considered creating an electronic version on an app like Quizlet? If you have the definition data in a structured format, it would be quick work using Quizlet's import tool. I can't do it quickly with the PDF version, otherwise would've and shared it here.
@aRiverathat's a good idea! To compile these I pulled the tool descriptions from each palette's overview in the Alteryx Designer help documentation. If it would be helpful I can send you the Word document that generated the PDF.
I've ported this resource made by @justindavis over to the website/mobile app Quizlet, so now folks have two options for this study set. The terms included are the same, but note that the Quizlet version has a slightly different format: Name of the tool is on side 1, and the tool image and description are together on side 2.
