Watermark in default Designer workflow



I need to include a watermark or watermark attribute in all Designer workflows.  Is it possible to modify the default Designer workflow template so that all new workflows have the watermark?  If so, could this modification be scripted so existing Designer installations could be retrofitted with the watermark in their default workflow template?

One method I've heard is to edit the Learning Guide workflow that shows up by default whenever Designer is opened. This could be modified to include company best practices or tools. 


Here's the default path:

C:\Program Files\Alteryx\Samples\en\Learning Guide\Learning Guide.yxmd


Once Alteryx is installed, save over this file with the desired changes.




The only way I can think of to add a watermark to a workflow is by adding a container with a watermark image over it. This will then be dragged/placed across the visible areas of the workflow.


This can be retrofitted to the first new workflow when Alteryx is opened up by editing the Start Here workflow that comes with Designer and selecting it to open. I am not aware of another way to edit the plain New Workflow canvas that is opened after that.


Thanks for the suggestion.
