Please can you fix the copy and paste of renames across field. It's a behavior that I see in many tool's grids and drives me mad. Its not just select.
Take the attached screen shot. In the select tool, i've renamed "test 2" to "rename2". Fine it works. No issue.
I then copy rename2 and paste into the test3 field, and it copys the entire row's data (and metadata) into that little box, tabs, spaces the lot. I end up with something like the screenshot. Really not sure it was meant to be designed this way, as I cant really see the point.
I'm just submitting @neilgallen's idea from here. The labels in the results window are still white, which is no longer visible. You can barely see that they're indeed still there when you hover over them.
When a tool container is disabled, I'd like the lines that are going into it to be different from "enabled" lines.
They could be grey or dotted for example.
When working on a workflow and disabling containers, I find that the lines entering disabled containers become confusing or cluttering. It would be much simpler to focus my attention efficiently if lines that remain enabled could be distinguished quickly.
Typically I drag tools from the tool pallet to my workflow. Sometimes, when I need to insert a tool into my workflow, I will right click to get the Insert tool dialog to find the tool I want to insert between two existing tools. With the new UI, it is hard to see the tool categories as these were redesigned for the darker back ground. The preparation category is sandwiched between 3 other categories that start with "P" and I typically lean on the color/shape of the tool icon to find what I'm looking for. Now I have to read the text to really know for sure.
Perhaps you could lightly shade the middle of the tool category icons to make them easier to see or perhaps make the background behind the tool categories match the new toolbar color.
Tool categories icons are hard to distinguish since they are now just light colored outlines on a light background.
This idea consists of a couple of requests that are related to the same topic - table styling using the formula field. As most probably know, the table tool offers column/row specific formatting. Some of the basic formatting offered in the configuration are: fonts, texts colors, and backgrounds. For anything that doesn't fall into these types of formatting rules, there is a "Formula" option that allows the user to define CSS-like statements to format the selected column, row, or cell. Related to this formula, I have two requests:
I would like a double border to be included as an option. After speaking with a support engineer, they do not believe this is currently available. The double border is used in most financial documents as the "sum line". I see a lot of uses for this, especially in my industry. I would expect a formula like this: "border-top: 1px solid double black;" to give a result like this:Desired OutputBut it gives a result like this:Current Alteryx Output
I would like to see additional documentation on this Style Formula field so users have a reference when attempting to do advanced styling on a table. I don't think it's sufficient to say, "Use of this requires a solid understanding of CSS styles" if all CSS styling options aren't available. Documentation would at least let us know that what we are attempting to do isn't possible.
It is disorienting when I am creating string fields explicitly coded to a specific length, then viewing my results window and having the values not line up across rows. If a font like courier were added as an option, this could be avoided.
I often go betwen the favorites group and other groups of tools I'm using but might not be considered favorites. It would be nice if there was a way for a user to put the their most commonly used tools in a ribbon bar on the top near the run button? The user could quickly grab and drag that tool to the canvas. IT wouldn't replace the favorites but be an addition to favorites. What do people think? Useful or redundant? Interested to hear what people say.
I discussed this with Rithi Son and he suggested I submit this idea for a GUI enhancement. Need: I would like the ability to snap size/maximize the floating boxes. This includes config, results, overview, etc. Current Issue: Currently when these sections are undocked and in floating mode there is no maximize button and no ability to snap the sizing as you would the main GUI of Alteryx (no maximize button and no windows snapping to the side ability to set to half the screen size). Reason for Change: This makes it difficult to use multiple monitors quickly as it wont save the layout to the monitors on close and adds labor. Meaning when reloading Alteryx it pulls all the floating overtop onto the program’s monitor. I have to manually move the windows, resize manually (often overlapping my monitors due to its current sizing behavior), and then can continue my work. Additional Workaround Troubleshooting:I know we have the ability to set new window for the results info but I am specifically looking for all floating sections. Including the results section as a whole.
When selecting a colour for a container I would like to be able to click randomize and let Alteryx pick the colour, however I would like the option to click 'random new colour' so it picks a colour not already used in a container on the current workflow I should then be able to customize the transparency as per normal.
