Use Text Tool to Describe Data Output

6 - Meteoroid

I have built a workflow that combines several datasources and performs several "tests". Each test is recorded as its own column, {Test A: "Pass"/"Fail"} {Test B: "Pass"/"Fail) .....



Is there a clever way of analysing the outcome of these tests? I would like to finish the workflow with an email that says in the body:

XXXX records inspected with the following tests performed:

Test A: XXX records passed, XXX failed. (X%)
Test B: XXX records passed, XXX failed. (X%)

Test C: XXX records passed, XXX failed. (X%)

See attachment for detail of exceptions. 



The only way I can see to make this work is to add a filter, count and join for each XXX above which seems needlessly messy. Is there an easier option?

Hi @do55,


I think I got something for you:



The result looks like this:



I'll attach the workflow for you. Let me know what you think.

I first used the multi field formula to convert all the "passes" and "fails" to numbers (1 for passed 0 for failed).


Then I used the summarize tool to count the sum of the results columns and the counts, and then a formula tool to calculate the percentages and failed tests.


After this, these fields can be used in a text report:



Please see the attached workflow and let me know if it works for you.

Great solution thanks!
I was previously going down a Python route, nice to use the native features.
