Python SDK importing custom modules

7 - Meteor

I have an custom tool whose file depends on several other python files. Just to avoid clutter in the main one.

I have placed the other modules in same directory as but when running the tool in alteryx I get the import Error.

How do I resolve this?

Hello Guys,


Could you elaborate a bit how the Salesforce tool works exactly when it comes to importing custom modules?
