I am working with this workflow. I show the directory tool having the updated directory when i run through the debug view, it works. In the directory tool i now have the directory specified in the Folder Browse Tool. However, when when I select "run as an analytic app" and select the folder, and hit finish, I get a pop-up that says "Finished running New Workflow1 in 0.8 seconds There Were No Output Files" I select ok, hit Exit, and the directory on the Directory tool is still blank.
The directory tool is an input that can provide tools within Alteryx the direct location of a file or files as a string and doesn't create an output. To create an output you'll need to put an Output Data at the end of the workflow and use the directory location provided by the directory tool to point to that location. Once the output data tool is set up it will update the file in that directory location.
