What a fantastic post! Certainly the fastest way to get a overview of what's new in Alteryx v11. 

Great release! Particularly liking the new formula tool.

Great idea to post these videos - thank you!

 

Curiously they don't come up on the Alteryx Channel on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/user/alteryx/videos) or under the Alteryx Playlists (https://www.youtube.com/user/alteryx/playlists?shelf_id=0&view=1&sort=dd) - not sure if they were posted under a different Alteryx user on YouTube?

 

Folks who are subscribed to Alteryx videos will not see these in their YouTube feed at current.

 

 

The global search function and auto-complete for the formula tool are extremely helpful in training new users. I can't wait until they integrate some of the HTML5 into the other tools with the auto-complete. Also a huge thanks for integrating the profiling basics into the browse tool, it has saved me from  a lot of initial exploration.

Thanks Joe Miller.

 

This is very informative and to the point. Thanks a lot for putting it in one single page.
