Ability to execute tools in parallel within the same workflow

Tools within a workflow needs to be able to run in parallel whereever applicable.


For example: Extracting 10 million rows from one source, 12 million rows from a different source to perform blending.

currently the order of execution is the order in which tools are dragged into the canvas. Hence Source1 first, Source2 second and then the JOIN.


Here Source1 & Source2 are completely independent, hence can be run in parallel. Thus saving the workflow execution time.


Execution time is quite crucial when you have tight data loading window.


Hopefully alteryx considers this in the next release!


There are trial licenses available for use with the Beta programs from the Beta site linked above.

Are there any updates on how the beta testing is going? Is there an estimate on when this feature will be launched to all users?

Hi @TonyaS,


I requested access to the 2020.1 beta program several weeks ago and have not heard back. Is this something you can help with?


Thank you,





yes I definitely can help. If you send me a message with your email address I will make sure that you get set up to access the Beta site.
