Alteryx App Builder - Dropdown to edit data table

BethanG

I've created an Alteryx workflow that outputs a data table, however I'd like to incorporate a manual check by the user before proceeding to the next step of the flow.

 

For example, the Alteryx flow might output the following table:

NameCategory
AX
BX
CX
DY
EY
FY

 

I'd like my users to be able to review and make changes to the table using a defined drop down in the category column (e.g. X, Y, Z)

NameCategory
AX
BX
CX
DZ
EY
F

Y

 

My current version of the workflow has the workflow overwrite a xlsx template with data validation, and asking the end user to make edits in the xlsx file before uploading the file to the alteryx for the next stage of the workflow.

 

However, I am looking to increase the sophistication of the tool using the new Alteryx App Builder, as it has a dropdown functionality. Is my use case possible in App Builder?

Hi @BethanG 
My understanding of App Builder tells me that this type of thing is possible (and is part of the reason App Builder was developed). However, to give you a first-hand account, I would recommend you give the free trial a go:

Hi @BethanG 

Thank you for your interest in App Builder. Currently there is no way to edit the data in a Table, but that is on our Roadmap for 2024.
