Running analytic app in desktop application for identifying errors

Tienemientje

Hi all,

 

I have created an analytic app which users without Alteryx Desktop would run from the server.  

They first need to load an excel template with different tabs (always the same) with data.

 

My flow does some checks on the data and produces a similar excel output but with an extra tab for error messages created with formulas in the flow.

 

If I put a static file on a location and load this, my flow works perfectly.

I even managed for the flow to read from every tab and output to correct tabs.

Only my error tab is behaving strange.  

 

What I would like to do is somehow "load a file" as an end user would do, but then look in the flow where it goes wrong to fix it.  So run the flow in designer and after the run being able to see every tool and its output.

 

Is this possible?

 

Kind regards, Tienemientje

Have you tried Debug mode in Designer?

Thank you @mbarone ,

 

View - Interface Designer and there run the flow with on the right debug mode.  I did not know that functionality.

 

Kind regards,

Sure, no problem!  One of the most useful features in Designer - works like a charm!
