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!

Simple use of the "Drop Down" Select tool in an analytic workflow

6 - Meteoroid

I have a table of colours alongside a number for each colour.

I would like the user to select a colour and then the workflow to filter this table by this colour.

It does not seem to work at all! Seemingly selecting "Indigo" does work (app results pop up displays correctly)

Then pressing Exit from the dialog seems to revert the workflow back and Indigo is not selected in the workflow.

Hi @Ns89 


The app is just a custom way to run your workflow with parameters. Making choices in your app does not change the structure of workflow itself.

If the output returned correct results from Filter Tool, then you are in the right path. As a way to check you could add an Output Tool at the end of the workflow to export your results to an Excel File or whatever it might suit you.
