We've all been there - we see someone demo Alteryx and we stop them mid-sentence and say, "Wait a minute. Back up. What did you DO there?" They reply, "Oh you didn't know you could...xyz..?!" And in that moment your life has been A-L-T-E-R-E-D!!! Whoa.
Seriously though, Alteryx is a vast product and there are a bunch of hidden and not so hidden gems that need to be a part of your daily life. We'll show you some of the lesser known tips and tricks, shortcuts and subtle features that will make you more efficient in workflow creation. You can still use Alteryx without knowing these things, but why have and eat your cake without the icing?

In the meantime, here are some workarounds you might consider:
I hope that helps and appreciates the feedback!

I loved, loved, loved this hangout and took copious notes, so thank you!
Spoiler alert, because my tips will be in my Inspire presentation too. These have probably been covered elsewhere, since all my revelations have come from other users.
Ooh! Now I have another tip...re-read things you've read before. I've already browsed through Inspire 2015 Tips & Tricks, but now I have more experience under my belt, so my questions have changed.
