When you use Create Points tool - you then almost always need to use a Select tool to rename that point.
Can we please add a single text field to the Create Points tool - which would then allow us to create and name a point in one step?
I would expand this that a lot of the spatial fields could benefit from allowing the user to rename the output fields.
+1 for fewer needless Select tools!
Thank you for your feedback! I've added an extra label to this idea to insure all the correct product teams see it. For anyone interested in this idea be sure to check out the Category Spatial label for other spatial based ideas as well as our Submission Guidelines which go over the idea boards in a bit greater detail.
Agreed Sean this is a pretty standard pattern of tools. Especially when modelling or start and end points to keep track of the spatial objects I often find myself renaming, origin and destination. Etc.
This would be a great addition, even if its optional.
@SeanAdams agree this is a good improvement, but worth also thinking of the Spatial function option too which allows column creation in formula tool
Our product team has reviewed this idea, and unfortunately we cannot place this update to the Create Point tool on the near term roadmap. However, we do have plans to revisit our holistic Geo experience in the future and this idea will be revisited for review once we reach that point in time.
The same idea as this one here with 10 likes from July 2017: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Name-the-output-field-of-the-Create-Points-T...
@CristonS - Maybe worth combining?
