Anybody know of a way to add a pre-configured tool to the tool palette? There is one particular Excel file/worksheet combo that I use frequently. Instead of dragging a blank input tool onto the canvas, browsing to the file on the network, selecting the proper worksheet, and then modifying workflow dependencies to use UNC, I'd like to simply configure the input tool for the file I frequently use it and add that as a pre-configured tool to the palette.
I suppose I could create a macro with just the configured input tool, but I fear this would add complexity when trying to share the workflow.
One option would be to create a workflow that was essentially just a framework and would contain only the input tool correctly configured. Then you would be able to then duplicate that workflow and add any additional tools afterwards.
This as you say may make it easier to share the workflow. As you rightly pointed out, the other option would be to create a Macro with this configuration contained within.
