Allow caching of multiple tools at the same time

Some of the workflows I use have multiple inputs that can take a long time to initially load. The new cache function itself has been amazing, but there is one big drawback for me: I can't cache multiple tools at the same time.  Alteryx will allow me to eventually cache all of the tools I want cached, but it will take multiple times running the file.  This still saves me time in the end, but it feels a bit cumbersome to set up.

Good news! We shipped an enhancement to our caching feature that allows you to select multiple points to cache simultaneously! You'll find it in our 2019.1 release.

Thank you @RachelW , I upgraded to 2019.1 and already used the new multi-point caching a few times and it's Super!!!

@DavidP That's fantastic to hear! I've been enjoying using it myself.

Hi,

 

Can someone tell me the name of the tool? I can't find it when searching for 'multi-point cache'

 

@fahmed18 You can select multiple tools (either click the canvas and drag a rectangle around them, or hold Ctrl and click each tool), right click on any selected tool, then select cache and run:

yeah, saw that little later. Still missing the checkbox though :S But I guess it will be like this going forward. Thanks for the response JPoz
