Data Cleansing Tool -> Delete Null Rows & Columns

There are few workarounds for this task, but it would be really very easy if Data Cleansing Tool could delete Null Rows and Null Columns. After all its just a macro which can be modified and re-packaged into Alteryx Designer.


Currently, to delete a null row requires multiple columns validation for common Null attributes,

similarly to delete a null column every column has to be compared on a row-level and flagged for removal. Both of these approaches are clumsy.


Wouldn't it be so simple if Data Cleansing Tool gave such check boxes !!!

Delete Null Rows and Delete Null Columns has been added to our Data Cleansing tool in the latest release, 2020.2, which you can download here! Please note there is a order or operations when for these features where the tool will check and delete null rows before null columns should both be checked. Be sure to let us know what you think in the Designer Discussions board!
