Is there a way to show same Alteryx Dataflow in two separate windows?
For example, many times I need to refer data preview or metadata result in one input tool and go back to another input tool to adjust data type to match another input tool. I am wondering if I can have two windows open for the same Alteryx Dataflow similar to Excel's view new windows function. Thanks!
You are able to open up two instances of the Alteryx applications on your machine and you can have the same flow open on both. I have found, however, that I will do a "Cache and Run Workflow" prior to whatever I am making changes on. This is done by right clicking on a tool already in the flow and selecting "Cache and Run Workflow".
Some other things to consider:
Running a smaller subset of the data while you make changes
Having a flow saved that is a working copy and one that is your production and then make changes to the working copy.
This will allow you to have two instances of the same flow open at the same time
