Do you need to extract specific information out of the page or just purely a screenshot? You can use a text input tool with the website URL in it followed by a download tool in order to web scrape the underlying HTML. An screenshot would require another program, python script with Selenium, or API in order to capture an image. This is possible, but is a little more involved.
@gregx- I agree with you about Alteryx's XML Parse tool being a waste - but I think you're off base here. As @Felipe_Ribeir0 points out - Alteryx is not an RPA tool. There may be crossover between what Alteryx can do and what UiPath can do - but the two are quite different. There is no photo/capture/screen shot capability because Alteryx doesn't hijack your browser like an RPA tool.
And for what it's worth - I think the issue with the XML tool is that XML itself is a mess. You need a level of template knowledge to know how to correctly parse XML (ie an .xsd file or some other ingestion schema) - a generic "XML tool" doesn't really work here... I end up just doing whatever I need to do by ingesting in text.
@apathetichell not sure why are you referring to another topic, but just be aware that old, old Excel, even from early 00's can properly read XML data, and 'new' Alteryx still can't handle it. It's not about XML, it's about poor alteryx solution
Sorry for intermingling the two - one point I think is well worth discussing with Alteryx (ie develop something better or drop the tool) - and I think the second point (the specific to this thread) is not something Alteryx can do with the current platform - Alteryx does not interact directly with your browser.
