What is the Alteryx Public Preview program? Alteryx will deliver a single build of Designer with all upcoming GA functionality available to test in customer environments. This means our customers can test this functionality a full month before it is Generally Available. Imagine validating upcoming Designer functionality in your own unique production environment, and at the same time building expertise and knowledge around these new features and enhancements.

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