2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

In 2020 (for obvious reasons) the ACEs wanted to connect with each other and started having Friday Night Happy Hours (ask and you might be invited).  We talk about cats, dogs and oh yes, Alteryx.  During a recent Happy Hour we turned the discussion into a recording and the following is a trimmed version of the discussion.  We were talking about workflow organization, containers and macros.  You won't hear much from me because I cleverly spoke before turning the recording on.  You'll hear plenty from the following ACEs:  @SeanA , @Hollingsworth , @grossal , @Deanna , @DavidP , @Aguisande , @T_Willins .

 

Alteryx Community turned down the opportunity for us to create a blog series of our recordings.  If you would like to encourage us to repeat our discussions or to feed us topics for insights, please reply to this thread.  But more important, is to voice your opinion on how you organize and maintain your workflows.  Are you like Sean?  Do you agree with John?  Do you like containers?  Do you like macros?  Do you test first and answer questions later?

 

Tell us who says "I have some really gigantic, thorny, ugly workflows that would make Sean's skin tingle" and you might be invited to an upcoming Happy Hour.

If you think that this is blog-worthy, please #AlteryxHappyHour here, IG or Twitter.  I'll be watching ....

Love this post, Mark - thanks so much for sharing all of your thoughts in a new format!  I wasn't aware that this was originally asked to be a blog series, but I personally kind of prefer it as a discussion post myself as well - it's so much easier to have some deeper conversations in the forums around these topics, and I think there's a lot of potential to keep this going as a regularly occurring thread that our whole community can jump in and engage with!

 

I'm also always excited to crowdsource any feedback from our community, because after all - that's why we're here at the end of the day, right? Whatever format it's in, this is really good stuff and I'm excited to have it here - thanks for posting, Mark, and thanks to ALL of the ACEs for sharing their ideas during the recording!

I liked Tim's response to debugging a 400 tool workflow: "No!".

 

Sometimes someone slaps something onto your Alteryx canvas and says: "Tell me what this does."

 

Since you are getting paid for such activities, you can't say "No!".

David, You mentioned that you don't use container tools because they mess up your alignment. But tools don't anchor to a comment box. Seems we are missing a hybrid option, a box that can hold tools like a container does, but can be configured for size or alignment.
