Thanks you to @JoeM for recent training on macros, and @NicoleJohnson for pointing out some of the challenges.
when writing an iterative macro - it is a little bit difficult to debug because when you run this in designer mode, it only does one iteration and stops.
Could we add the capability to the designer itself to be able to run the second and third iteration using the test data built into the macro input tool? Even something as simple as an option to run X iterations; or when it's run the first iteration allow me to look at what happened and trigger iteration 2 (or to trigger a run-through to completion) would be immensely helpful.
While you can do this with a test-flow wrapped around a macro, macro development is a bit of a black box because Alteryx doesn't natively have the ability to step into a macro during run-time and pause it to see what's happening on iteration 1 or 2 or n and why it's not terminating etc. So putting the ability to run in a debug mode would be HUGELY helpful.
