Scrolling functionality added to Workflow shelf

I really like that I can scroll -- using my mouse -- between the tool groups in Alteryx. Can this UX be added to scroll through my workflows? I usually have a bunch open, and this functionality would be awesome to have there, too! 🙂

 

PS: Yes, I know I can do Ctrl+Tab...but mouse scrolling is more efficient.

Thank you, I didn't even know that you could do Ctrl+Tab to switch workflows... 😄

When I am working with multiple workflows opened at once I always find myself clicking multiple times on the tabs to reach one that is not showing. It would be awesome if I could use the scroll wheel on my mouse to quickly select the one I want. Another option is to resize the width of each tab to fit the width available, same way Chrome works.

Hey @gabrielvilella, I think this is a duplicate idea of this one which has 24 votes, so make sure you upvote: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Scrolling-functionality-added-to-Workflow-sh...

 

A little tip that you might like is if you hold ctrl and press tab then you can cycle through your workflows!

@joe_lipski Nice! I tried searching if this was already suggested, I guess my search wasn't engough. I upvoted that one. And I did not know about the control + tab tip, thank you!

Hello!

 

I noticed that the idea 'Scroll through multiple workflows tabs' was a duplicate of this one, so I merged these ideas to insure that our product team can view the interest in the idea as a whole. 

 

Thank you!
