Is there a way in Alteryx to run individual tool? I've realized that every time I "add" a tool on an existing workflow and run it, Alteryx runs the entire workflow. Is there a way to run tool I've just added, without running everything? Thanks
With version 10 came browse everywhere. Every tool maintains 1 Mb of data from each output anchor. The concept of caching data has been suggested where all upstream tools are skipped once a tool is set as a cache point.
If I'm looking to emulate that today, I will either browse (and then save the output) or output data and start a new workflow reading the last saved set of data.
In order to do that, Alteryx flow would need to store all the data up to that tool, either in memory or on disk, which would not be great for overall performance. Especially if it's replicating the cache for -every- tool. There are other programs that have that functionality, and I think they're much slower as a result.
