Undo Button Enhancements

The Undo button in Alteryx has saved me many times! Unfortunately, I never know what all was "undone" when I click the button. It would be nice to update the Undo process in 2 ways:

  • Replicate the Excel undo drop down (which includes a brief description of what will be undone and allows you to undo multiple actions at once).

  • Move your location on the canvas to the area affected by the Undo-ing. Currently your location on the canvas doesn't change when you press Undo, even if the change being undone was off screen.

This would be helpful.  I was thinking of it as a change history.  Maybe a brief description of the change and a timestamp.  Being able to roll a workflow back to a specific point in time/change and save it would be amazing.

Thanks for submitting this idea! We'd like to make some improvements to undo functionality in general, but we don't have this planned on the roadmap for the next year.
