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.

Hi @nshapir2 , if you're using the Python tool in Alteryx Designer, you can use the print function to write to the Results window, see below...

Ah, for an app you'll want to use reporting tools and output to a pcxml file. See attached.

so I followed this procedure in Alteryx, and I can produce the file but the output says [Message] rather than what is stored in the message.

hey @nshapir2 

Ensure the output from the python tool that you want to display, is called 'Message':

If not, it will product the issue you are receiving.

I am running in an analytics tool. It should be called message? the dataframe I created has message stored in it.

its a dataframe with message 1 and message 2, (two rows). That I write to output 1

I need to output the messages in alteryx gallery. How can I accomplish this?

@nshapir2 I provided an example of how this can be done with the above python_example.yxwz example. If you're having trouble replicating it perhaps you can attach the workflow you're creating so that we can troubleshoot it?
