Fabulous standing room only sessions at Inspire 2018 ladies!

 

Margarita suggested I add a tip .... when viewing large workflows it is easy to zoom out and then selectively zoom back into a different section by combining Ctrl, Mouse Scroll wheel and the Mouse pointer's location.

 

Zoom out w/Ctrl+Scroll but then move your mouse pointer over a section of interest and Ctrl+Scroll to "drop down into" the view.

 

Quick way to zoom out to 50,000 foot view and instantly drop back down into an entirely different section.

Thanks for sharing!  You two were amazing with a packed house! 

 

We were wondering if you had just the slides for your presentation?  

 

Thank you again!

Can someone also share the presentation on Data Audits and error handling,...

 

Thanks,

Thanks @MargaritaW for the link. I would just like to point out that, when we click on the 'Download' we are presented with two screens with some kind of error message popping out. Using the down arrow button on the bottom-right of the screen we are able to download. I feel this can be avoided.

This is really great stuff! One quick note - page 31 recommends inserting a select tool before the joins to rename the fields. No need to add that step, the Join tool has similar features to the Select tool. You can reorder and rename your fields w/in the tool itself.

Hi @cking6178 

You're correct, but that SELECT within the Join tool, only affects the records on the J output, while L & R Outputs, will remain "untouched".
