When adding a new tool to a data flow, please default the Results window to the Input tab

OK, this one will only save a single click per addition of a tool, but with Alteryx's general awesomeness small annoyances become like a stone in the shoe.

 

Consider my highly complex workflow below ; having inspected the dataset I now realise that I don't want some of the fields in my dataset...

...so I drag a Select tool in to deselect the columns, but I can't remember what the dataset looks like and I can't see the data...

...so I click on the Input tab and there it is, I can deselect away !

It would be particularly useful with something like a Summarize tool where I like to see the data to decide which aggregation to use.

 

Thanks !
