It seems odd to me that Alteryx has so many connectors for complex data sources but lacks a built-in tool for standard FTP and SFTP which is arguably the most common external data source of all.
I've searched around the community and of course there are all kinds of methods involving using the download tool or command line, but all these require quite a bit of setup and advanced understanding. Why not just setup a built-in tool for FTP that would allow users to easily download and upload to FTP?
Alteryx is all about simplicity and democratization of the data shaping role, so the need for a simple FTP tool seems key to that product vision. Thanks for considering...
