Web version of Alteryx Designer


Well, the title is pretty simple : it appears that the tendancy right now is to  have web version of any software on a server.

A few notes about that :
-a lot of Alteryx competitors are already in this mode and it's hard to sell you're still with a desktop-only mode for design, even if the product is far better.
-a good idea is the one used by Qlik with Qlik Sense : they still have a desktop and a web version of Sense but the desktop works mainly as an hidden browser plus an engine. The web version is cool too because you can make your own application, or your own data connection etc..
-the main interest of a web implementation of Alteryx would be to reduce installation on client computers (and that means packaging the installer, managing the data connection, the paths, the access to macros... etc) and to have a better control of the users.

PS : this idea is soooo simple and so obvious I'm surprised I didn't find it. It may be a duplicate.

Are you sure? I just watched that :


There are fantastic features in Designer and Server (whoah, real changes) but I'm not sure a web version of Designer is mentioned.

Any updates on this or an ETA.. We are currently using other products primarily because they have a Web UI and would love it if Alteryx was able provide that same functionality.

This will be a game changer!

Good evening,

the reason of this idea arises from the fact that there are plenty of people who would benefit from Alteryx but cannot do it. In several small medium companies (the typical situation of North Italy), the decision makers about if purchasing Alteryx licenses or not, are the CEO or the CFO, usually with limited technical knowledge (hence with limited understanding of the potential benefits).


My idea is to create a light online version, exclusively for learning purpose, which can be used only with selected online files available in the community. It would be easier for professionals to get familiar with the tool exercising themselves and for them to make decision makers understand why investing in this fantastic tool.


In this way Alteryx can spread its reputation and get new potential users that will boost demand inside current companies. 


The more prepared someone is on a tool, the more likelihood it is that he can convince other people, stakeholders and companies to invest on the product.


I do hope that you can see the potential of this idea.

Hello all. Just a little update : Tableau Prep will be available on the web in a few days (with limitations to be fair) Alteryx seems late on this point

Is it possible to have some update or some screenshots or, let's dream, an ETA on this idea?

Best regards,

Hi all,

Thank you for the discussion around this idea! We are indeed actively working on moving some Designer functionality to the web in order to streamline user access to Alteryx capabilities. We're excited for this future web-based technology that will not only bring flexible access to Designer capabilities (Mac included), but also an intuitive user experience and innovations, simplified upgrade path, and speed and scalability for organizations. While our efforts are well underway, I cannot yet share any specifics about timing or application screenshots. Rest assured, we are working diligently towards this goal and will be able to share more specific and exciting details in the not-too-distant future! I'm sorry to disappoint, @simonaubert_bd, by not bringing a clear ETA to the table for you here today, but I promise to keep this thread (and all our customers!) updated as we are able to bring more specifics externally. Please stay tuned!
