It would be really nice to be able to easily trace a selected field through a workflow (see below, trace in green). This would greatly help with troubleshooting.
Brilliant idea - this fits in nicely with some of the ideas that @Ned and @AdamR have been kicking around to have explicit field identifiers within Alteryx.
I can see myself using this idea daily!
Thanks @StephenR for the idea post. This is something that is being explored currently. As @SeanAdams points out, there are many related features we can enable if we get functionality like this implemented.
If you are trying to trace a field you can currently search the name using Control+F and when you search the field name it will list out all the tools containing that name. I use this on occasion if I am in someone else's workflow.
+1, that would be fantastic, i can certainly identify with this when troubleshooting.
The control+F or what ever solution this evolves to it would be perhaps more useful if the search had multiple of options
+1 excellent stuff, i can see how useful this would be when tracing particular fields
Yes! Can't tell you how many times I've added a field in my initial query and then had to sort out where it got lost when it didn't reach the end of the workflow I was working in. (It's usually in a summarize tool...)
At inspire APAC they demoed this functionality but I don;'t think it's made it into the main release yet sadly- would be super useful
@KylieF: Hello. I think this functionality was showed at Inspire events 2019, at least something very close. Can you please this is an accepted idea?Best regards,
