Now that Alteryx releases updates to Designer every quarter I'll likely be updating my copy of Designer frequently. Meanwhile, my IT team doesn't want to have to update Server every quarter to stay compatible. Problem there is, when I create workflows in the latest version of Designer they can't run on the older version of Server, nor on the Gallery.
Some features that would allow me to work around this:
If I could elect what version I want to use when uploading to the gallery.
If instead of having to upload workflows from within Designer (which thereby opens the workflow in whatever version I have installed on my machine) I could upload workflows from the Gallery website by navigating to a folder on my directory and selecting a given workflow. That way I could open the workflow in Notepad beforehand and alter the version number to match Server.
I'm guessing this is a niche problem that few others will encounter:
Not everyone is as big a nerd as me and will insist on updating Designer each quarter
Other companies may have IT teams that update Server each quarter
You can install an admin and non-admin version of Alteryx on your machine (I plan on doing this once IT responds to my internal service request).
You could use the admin version for the latest and greatest version of Alteryx
You could use the non-admin version to match whatever version of Server IT has installed and use that to upload (first opening the workflow in notepad to manually overwrite the version number to match server)
