AlteryDesigner Beta is now available to Alteryx Beta Program Participants!  Existing Alteryx Beta Program users Sign In/New users Sign Up.  Following is a summary of how and what you can test and provide feedback on! 


Replace Designer users love our ‘Find’ functionality, help us test the new Replace functionality to help users find and now Replace found values across their workflows!

PostgreSQL & Snowflake Bulk Loader - Alteryx bulk loaders are meant to improve the performance of data loads.  Currently it takes a reaaally long time to insert via ODBC or would require you to write a custom solution to get this to work.  With the new PostgreSQL & Snowflake Bulk loaders, Alteryx Designer users can write the results of their work into PostgreSQL and Snowflake databases as fast as possible.

Python Virtual Environment Manager - Virtual environment management is critical for enabling workflows utilizing the Jupyter tool to function in Alteryx server environments.  The Python Virtual Environment Manger enables users of the Jupyter tool to manage their own virtual environments and will also make the code-friendly experience in Designer even more powerful.
