The Tool Mastery Series is a compilation of Knowledge Base contributions that introduce diverse working examples for Designer Tools. We've organized the links below to help you on your journey to mastering the Alteryx Designer!
Consider yourself a Tool Master already? Let us know at email@example.com if you'd like your creative tool uses to be featured in the Tool Mastery Series.

I love Alteryx and that means, I love the employees that make up the Alteryx team. The idea to create an index of "weekly challenges" was a great addition and motivator for us to participate and lots of new folks are taking the challenge(s)! After @TaraM unveiled her Periodic Table (with help from @AdamR) I thought of creating a Tool Mastery matrix and drafted a workflow to group the documents from the Knowledge Base and passed the workflow artifacts to friends there and WOW! Great job in improving an idea for the betterment of the community.
Thank you, @MarqueeCrew!! Without your brilliant idea and proof of concept to piggyback off of, we wouldn't have known where to start! It's folks like you that make our work so easy - and even more rewarding.
Brilliant stuff @MattD - this was much needed, and you've done a great job of this!
This is fantastic, thank you. I would love to see more of these series in the knowledge base and laid out in index form like this. Well-documented help guides are invaluable for engaging my internal users, and give our learning groups a syllabus to work off of.
While it is much smaller than the tool mastery series, it would be great if the CS Macro Dev series was similarly documented and also fleshed out a bit more. There is so much power in developing Alteryx macros and it is an intimidating and thus under-utilized part of the software for my users. For example, I was unaware for quite some time that I could use all of the interface tools to create more dynamic macros and thought their use was restricted to analytic apps. Making users more aware of all of these options in a learning series would help expose all of the power under the hood of Alteryx.
@MattD Great consolidation. Thank You for this awesome documentation
Just a quick reminder (I learned this the hard way recently) , that the Filter tool works differently to the Filter In-DB tool
Filter tool - all records that evaluate to 1 (ie TRUE) are T and all other records are F (ie FALSE)
Filter In-DB tool - all records that evaluate to 1 (ie TRUE) are T; all records that evaluate to 0 (ie FALSE) are F and all other records are ignored and are not output by the filter at all.
