Send Error Emails on Workflow Failure

5 - Atom

Hi All,


Could you help me with sending emails when a workflow has any errors? I see Alteryx has a default feature which disables email tool from sending mails when a workflow has any errors! I have input data validation checks where I would like to notify my stakeholders.

Hello my friend, you are in luck! I recently was talking about this solution demo to my colleague group at work, hope this helps:

Create a macro where you have the email tool configured and use your workflow to input to the macro

Save as many error messages as you want in your workflow! Voila!

Thank you, will try. Looks like it should work, didn't think of this.

Hi @Niravgosalia10 


You can configure Event to send email on after run with errors. This will send you the output log when run with errors. Please refer the below post on how to set it up.


Hope this helps : )
