File Browse Tool Bug

If I set an Excel file mask under the "arbitrary" configuration of the File Browse Tool on the desktop version, Alteryx will not prompt for worksheet selection. If I save that same configuration to the server, then the file mask is ignored (the users can select any file) and Alteryx will then prompt for a worksheet selection. Please set it where the environments have consistent behavior.

 

Prompting for a worksheet should be an option that the developer can turn off.

What a bummer this hasn't been addressed! I told somebody "of course Alteryx can restrict the file specifications" and didn't realize that this functionality doesn't work in the gallery.
