Whilst the "Disable All Tools that Write Output" option within the Runtime Settings in Designer is useful.

 

I think a Workflow "Live" status / indicator could be really useful?

 

One key thing we have to seriously remind people whenever they start using Designer, especially when they are potentially picking up a workflow that some else has built is to sternly remind them that they need to understand the workflow outputs properly before pushing the run button!

 

One thing we do to get this message across is to demo the disable outputs option.

 

What would be better is to have some kind of interface / visual similar to the browse tool visuals that are created. But within the canvas / workflow / runtime config window?

 

This would instantly draw users attention to the fact that the workflow is connected to live outputs and that they should proceed with caution / turn off outputs etc. 

  • General Suggestion

So lets say I have five incoming connection.  SQL, Redshift, Excel...whatever.  I know I can right click, or control-right click on each incoming connection and select cache and run workflow.  I'd imagine there would be a run and cache all incoming connections but there isn't.  I realize I can arrange all incoming connections so they arrange easily so I can box them all, but on complex workflows, this might get complicated.

Hello - the added feature to show the designer tool detail of the four highly used tools (Join, Formula, Filter, and Summarize tool) is an incredible addition to Connect functionality. Can this functionality expand to the In-DB version of the same tools? We leverage In-DB when possible to utilize the processing power of the database. Adding this as well to Connect would be a huge benefit to see the complete picture of a workflow.
