Dear Alteryx Team,Dynamic Input Tool is a great tool to import easily multiple files using files paths parameters ... having the same tool for outputs would be great to export many files in pre-established folder.Many thanksArno
I would like to add to this feature request. With the render report tool, you can group by a specific field in your data, essentially creating multiple reports at once. In fact, it publishes multiple documents if desired. It would be WONDERFUL if you could render the report, group it by a specific field then have to ability to save each document to different folders in a directory. Life would be so much better if there was a type of dynamic output like there is a dynamic input, in the explained manner.
A dynamic output tool would be useful to write a file and then use the file in the same workflow. For example read data from a db table, generate a json file, then use the run command to execute a curl script to post the json file. I'm sure there are many other applications for a dynamic output. Would make the toolset consistent with the in-db tools e.g. 'write data in DB' tool
I actually create the filepath in a formula tool for each file needing to be written within a single workflow then pass it through a placeholder CSV. If a new folder is needed to house any of the files then I use the run command to add that folder before writing the files to it. This then creates as many file outputs as you specify and need in your workflow.
