It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
The following idea might not be as valuable as some of @SeanAdams posts, but it would save this user precious fractions of time. When I leave the canvas with my mouse (point A) to go up to the pallet I select and drag the tool down to the canvas. Sometimes I do right-click and go through the menus to add the next tool, but generally I go through that labor only when I'm inserting in-stream the tool. So here is my idea:
Double-Click your NEXT tool and it "Alteryx-ly" appears on your canvas in proximity to the hi-lighted (last) tool. Better yet, connect it! Now I can move from the pallet to the configuration panel directly without having to move my mouse down to the canvas and then over to the configuration panel.
Hopefully, my friend @Hollingsworth will find this time-saving idea worthy of a star. Speed demons like @NicoleJohnson and @BenMoss might not need this turbo boost, but at my age it is worth the ask.
