Have python OR alteryx pop out a box to user when they run analytics tool

I am building a ML model in python that will be run with the analytics tool. currently a dataframe with the r^2 is being printed to a .csv file. Is there a way to have alteryx output a message box that says for Model X is the r^2 is "r^2 value" ? or something of that sort?

 

The code runs in python that is the final step of the flow.

@nshapir2 I changed 3 things to get this working:

 

  1. in the last line of your python script, capitalized the A in Alteryx (Alteryx.write(df,1))
  2. changed the configuration of the Report Text tool from [df:A] to [message]
  3. saved the workflow as an Analytical App. when you do this, you can then run it as an app by pressing the magic wand button next to the Run button (see below)

This might be because I'm using a newer version of Designer than you. I would try dragging down a new Python tool, and copying/pasting all the code from the old tool to the new one, and deleting the old one.

@NeilR I am having some issues, it worked once or twice but now when I look at the render tool I see [No Valid Fields] in the "Data Field"

The report text function still says field name Text and has [message]

Can you share your workflow? Hard to say what's going on without that.
