Debating whether or not to upgrade to the latest version of Alteryx Designer?
The bak file that is automatically created (and re-created if deleted) really clutters up our folders.Please allow us to either turn it off, or specify a different location to hold our back up files.Thanks
Adding my own 2 cents. I don't mind the feature, but I would love to specify the directory.
I would love to hear the Alteryx Develoment team's input on this.
It seems like a very logical and simple change that would significantly enhance the user experience.
Here is work around for this. Write a bat file and keep under Alteryx workflow event after run. Below is screen shot for better understanding. Hope it works until Alteryx provide in-built option to ignore bak file as outcome of output file tool.
@nparikh That works great! I was trying to figure out how to like your comment...
Yes, how do I disable or hide .bak files? They are cluttering up my folders and look very messy.
I need an option to remove .bak files
@nparikh do you know the syntax for removing batch file located in a ftp server ..?
Yes would love to turn off or direct to another folder as work folder is linked onto a OneDrive 4 Business account (ensures work is backed up by group policy) which doesn't like .bak files
I'm constantly manually deleting my .bak files because I don't need the clutter. Please give us an option to turn off their creation, or at least designate a separate folder for all .bak files.
I would like the ability to specify a separate folder.
