World's simplest question - file formats with detour tool

Highlighted

All 

 

Quick question! I've been building a basic analytic application which summarizes some customer purchase data. I first built out the basic workflow to transform and summarize the data, and then added in a few interface elements to allow users to customize the workflow. However, as soon as I added in a detour start and stop, I no longer had the option to save the file as an application, and had to resave it as a macro. Is there something I'm missing here? Does anything that includes a detour need to be a macro?

Hey @talbert140

 

I think the only tools the would force you to make your workflow a macro would be control parameter, Macro Input & Macro Output.

 

Do you have any of these in your workflow?
