The admin needs to be given more control. The admin (curator) should have equal to and great control than the users of the system.
My organization is in the Healthcare industry and we have HIPAA laws to abide by when it comes to data. Not all users should be able to see all data. Developers should not have complete control over the data they publish.
Private studio -- admin should be able to control if user can publish to public gallery (compliant issues occur when users can all see and run workflows)
admin should be able to create collections so they can manage the collections and what users have access to
admin should be able to control if users can create new collections (again, compliance issues)
admin should be able to add workflows to collections (so users don't need to manage collections, admin can add the workflows for them)
admin should be able to give and remove download of workflow rights
Get tips from Tableau as they have admin controls down with their permissions process.
The configuration window for the Browse tool already shows Min, Max, Average, St.Dev, etc for numeric fields. If it included 'Sum' as well it would be very useful for tracking a control total for a given field through a workflow.
I would like to have all my annotations show on top of the tools by default. I can change them one at a time, but I would like to be able to change the default setting to be "Show Annotations on the Top" always.
I've got a situation wherein the user runs something in Gallery, and complains. I have to log in as that user to view the output files that came back out. As a super user, I should be able to have all seeing ability! Thanks!
we use a lot the in-db tools to join our database and filter before extracting (seems logic), but to do it dynamically we have to use the dynamic input in db, which allows to input a kind of parameter for the dates, calculated locally and easily or even based on a parameter table in excel or whatever, it would be great to be able to dynamically plug a not in db tools to be able to have some parameters for filters or for the connect in-db. The thing is when yu use dynamic input in-db, you loose the code-free part and it can be harder to maintain for non sql users who are just used to do simple queries.
You could say that an analytic application could do the trick or even developp a macro to do so, but it would be complicated to do so with hundreds of tables.
I'd like to see an enhancement that at the install level (through an XML configuration file for example), the use of the From field in the Email reporting tool could be disabled for population by the end user and instead would auto-populate with that current users e-mail address. Currently users can populate the field with any address on their domain, which is useful, but also poses a risk in that messages can be made to appear to be coming from a party that is not aware of it. We'd like to be able to control that on install and "turn off" access to the From field
When I define a constant and then use it to reference an input dataset it makes it very easy for me to switch paths. It also creates a little headache for me if I copy that input or create another workflow. When I create another workflow, I must re-type and create more user constant entries. It would be nice to be able to + (create new workflow) and to generate it via a copy of the current open workflow (copy ALL preferences set plus the user constants) from the workflow. Even the ability to copy/paste the constants would be an improvement.
Maybe it was a lack of planning, but I've had a need to rename a variable within a workflow and would like to (outside of the XML view) be able to rename the variable so that downstream tools don't have to be reconfigured (e.g. formula, join, union).
In Dec I had an issue where I could not uninstall or upgrade Alteryx. As part of troubleshooting and the eventual solution I had to manually delete any registry key related to Alteryx. As these were hundreds of entries this took a long time. It would be handy if Alteryx could provide a tool that cleaned the registry of all Alteryx related entries. Related: "Case 00088264: Unable to uninstall Alteryx"
It would be cool if the Overlap tool also worked with report layouts, instead of just the map image. For example, once I've pieced my different report tables into one layout, it would be cool if I could just add my company logo using image tool, add a Overlay tool, and add the logo to the top corner of my finalized report. I realized there are other ways of doing it, this would seem the most straight forward though. Just an idea.
Ever since upgrade to version 10, when you highlight rows in a browse tool, it is almost impossible to see what is highlighted. Previously, I believe it was a shade of green which provided great contrast against the white background of the cells so you could easily see what you were highlighting. With version 10, it was moved to a very very light blue which almost looks white, so it is near impossible to tell which rows you're highlighting. I looked in the settings and do not see any way to change this.
Am myself and my colleagues alone in finding this very straining on the eyes? Would like to either be able to select what color you want in the settings, or move back to something easier to see.
I am not sure if there already is an easy solution to sharing workflows between people using different language settings in Alteryx, so here goes.
My colleague is using the German version of Alteryx and both I and our server is using the English version of Alteryx. When he shares a workflow with interface tools, all connection strings disappear. This is due to the references in the script behind Alteryx are different. So in the German version, the connection is supposed to connect to a tool called "Aktion", but for the English version it needs to connect to a tool called "Action". The same example with "Frage" and "Question". It is funnily enough only an issue if at least one of the connection tools is an Interface tool. If it is not Interface tools, then the original connection remains as if it auto-detects and changes the language. The solution as is now is opening the Alteryx flow with a text editor and search for the German word, e.g. "Frage" and replace it with "Question". After saving and opening with Alteryx again, it works. However, we would like to avoid this little detour into the text editor. So, if it is possible for Alteryx to auto-detect and adjust the language for Interface tools as well or if it is possible to adjust the settings regarding language for a specific flow/macro, then this would be great.
Please let me know if another solution is already available.
If progress bar or overall process completion percentage can be displayed somewhere, adds great value for the users running complex processes (with multiple databases/ files as input and complex queries especially spatial queries).
The Listbox (interface macro) is currently populated statically when sourcing values through a Connected tool. Whatever, I configure in the macro is retained. When I use the macro in a workflow the LIstbox values are not updated when the fields in the connected tool are changed. This practically limits my capabilities to build a truely dynamic macro/app.
The Listbox should be able to show dynamically the fields coming in through the connected app.
