Auto cache & load

Here's a reason to get excited about amp!   Create a runtime setting that gets Alteryx working even faster. 

when you configure a file input you see 100 records.  Imagine the delight that after you run your workflows all input tools are automatically cached.  You run so much faster. 

now think of the absolute delight that even before you run the workflows that a configured input tool causes a background read off the input data.  Whether it is a new workflow or an opened existing flow that reading can start ahead of the time button. 

what do you think 🤔?

I like the idea. A few questions:

How are macros handled in this instance?

Would this add extra lag when I place every single tool on the canvas?

Is this a default that is pre-selected or an Opt-In?

How are python scripts handled?

How are API calls (download tool or custom python tool) handled?

Applies to file input.  Creates cached data (foreground/background). No impact on other tool performance. Opt in feature!  Input files only. Keep your Python, api and macros to yourself.

HA! good deal. So it's more of a tool default instead of a workflow default then, right?
