I think we would all benefit from having IntelliSense within Alteryx. Just think about how much quicker writing formulas wold be or any time you need to reference your data within the various tools.
Definitely something that would be awesome to see happen.
As an addition to this you should incorporate colouring and other features in the Expression writer to make the expressions easier to read - e.g. just like Tableau:
The idea is simple and widespread in many products industry wide. Basically as you type it should recommend a list of appropriate functions/variables/constants based on what you've typed so far. While tab or enter can be hit to autocomlete.
- Google has this in their search bar along with many other search tools
- Tableau has this in their calculated field box
Thanks for the great idea! We are currently working to improve the ease-of-use within the Formula Tool and will be including an Intellisense-like interaction which will make suggestions as a user is typing their formula expression. Check out some other Community users who have suggested a similar improvement: IntelliSense within Alteryx.
We really appreciate the feedback and look forward to making these improvements available!
@chris_love if you post the coloration as its own idea, I'll star it!! 🙂
Yes please! The smart auto complete feature greatly speeds up working with formulas and reduces errors.
Currently planned for the Formula tool (11.0)
