I have a workflow that I set up as a macro for 15+ people to use. Currently they are each pulling 10+ reports per day and they are all set to save into the same folder. I'm not sure how to set it up so that each user can save to a different folder without going in and changing the save location in the render and creating 15 different workflows. I would like to avoid making 15 different updates anytime I change something in the workflow.
I'd suggest adding a "Folder Browse" interface tool to your macro so that the user can specify their output location on the macro itself. You can configure it so that it updates the "Output File" field value in the Render tool directly. The render tool also has an option to modify the filename using a value in your data so you can also point this new interface tool to a tool (i.e. Formula) that will create the file path.
Sorry, I'm still a bit new to Alteryx. How would you use the Folder Browse tool in conjunction with the Render output? I have the Output mode on "Choose Specific Output File" and I am trying to use the update value tool to insert the correct file path, but I am having trouble getting it to go to a specific folder. It goes to one folder up from where I want it to save.
