The Alteryx Predictive Tools installation includes many great tools. Yet there are still many more available to download from the Alteryx Analytics Gallery:


Name Description Source Sample Support
Cognitive Services Text Analytics Sentiment analysis, key phrase extraction, and language detection via the Microsoft Cognitive Services Text Analytics API. Predictive District MSFT Analytic Template
Cross Validation Cross validation for model comparison and evaluation. Predictive District Cross Validation Sample
Importance Weights Select a set of variables to use in a predictive model based on how strongly related each possible predictor is to the target variable. Predictive District  
Model Coefficients Extract the model coefficients from a standard Alteryx Count, Gamma, Linear, or Logistic Regression model. This is a simple macro, and one of its purposes is to be used as a template by users to create their own macros to extract information from an R model object. Predictive District  
Model Comparison Compare the performance of one or more different predictive models based on the use of a validation (or test) data set based on a training/test approach. Predictive District Model Comparison Sample
Multidimensional Scaling Generate a map between items based on the dissimilarities, or distances, between items. Predictive District Multidimensional Scaling Sample
Output Model Write to disk either a native R binary file or PMML file from an R model object. Predictive District  
Survival Analysis Model the time until occurrence of an event (e.g., lapse of life insurance policy). Predictive District Survival Analysis Sample
Survival Score Produce the relative risk and restricted mean values based on a survival analysis model. Predictive District Survival Analysis Sample
TS Forecast Factory Provide forecasts from groups of either ARIMA or ETS models for a user-specified number of future periods. Predictive District TS Factory Sample
TS Model Factory Estimate time series forecasting models for multiple groups at once using the autoregressive moving average (ARIMA) method or the exponential smoothing (ETS) method. Predictive District TS Factory Sample
Variance Inflation Factors Produce a coefficient summary report that includes either the variance inflation factor (or VIF) or a generalized version of the VIF (GVIF) for all variables except the model intercept. Predictive District Variance Inflation Factors Sample
K-Medoids Clustering with the pam (partitioning around medoids) function of R's cluster package. One benefit of this method of clustering over what can be done with the K-Centroids tool is that clusters can be based on a distance or dissimilarity matrix produced from the MB Affinity tool. The combination of the MB Affinity and K-Medoids is one way to see how items "group together" (such as products in a shopping basket) in a way that is often very useful. Laboratory District K-Medoids Sample  
Partial Dependency Create partial dependency plots, which visually shows the relationship between a predictor variable and the predicted value of the target variable, as a well as an assessment of each predictor's relative "impact" (the range of values over which the predictor can "move" the predicted value of the target). Laboratory District Partial Dependency Sample



Once you've downloaded the tool you need, you can add it to the Designer Tool Palette by following the Macro Installation instructions.
