Macro use directly from Gallery

I was reading a post on the Community ( which reminded me of an idea that I had.


It would be really nice if a Gallery location could be used as a "Macro Search Path" so that macros don't need to be downloaded from the Gallery and saved locally to be used in a workflow.


So in addition to going to Options>User Settings>Edit User Settings>Macros and adding a local/network path, you could add your internal gallery information...

7 - Meteor

If there is a place on the gallery to store the yxmd, there should also be a place to store macros on the gallery.

It shouldn't be that hard.

Please put this feature on your roadmap.

Alteryx Partner


And with a versioning system, it would be even better ^^

But more seriously, this is one of the most missing things in the gallery right now (with a real data connection management, such as what Qlik Sense do as an illustration).

Best regards,

Thank you for posting to the Alteryx Community! Having server act as a "source of truth" for all Alteryx assets is one of the bigger initiatives we're looking to implement. Currently our product team is assessing a number of ideas, including this one, but the timeline for this initiative is fairly far in the future as they're working on system stability and simplification at present.


However the product team is keeping this idea in mind for when they are able to push features like this, and we will update this idea when more information is available!

Thank you for your post! We are really interested in this idea, however we cannot fit this idea on the near future road map. We’ll keep this idea in mind however and update the status once we’re better able to speak on when and if we can implement it.
