Here are some resources if you want to dive deeper into the topics discussed in this event:

 

Documentation Tools: You can find the help docs for the documentation tools here

 

Documentation Best Practices: Check out Ben Moss's blog on documentation best practices, which our speakers referenced throughout the call. We also have a blog series on making your workflows visually impactful. Finally, read through the responses in this discussion thread: Do you have an organizational or personal way of documenting workflows?

 

Comparing Workflows: If you have Designer version 2021.3 or later, check out this blog on how to compare two workflows. For older versions, here is another option for comparing workflows

 

Workflow Organization: Read more about Kenda's case for designing workflows vertically. And check out these bite-sized video tips for organizing your workspace in Designer. Our speakers also brought up reference shortcuts on the call--you can learn more about this technique in Patrick Digan's blog article.

If you were excited about the idea I mentioned regarding combining the container and comment tools, give this post a thumbs up: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Designer-Ideas/Combine-the-Container-and-Comment-Tools/idi-... 

 

Also, this video by @Aaron_Harter@Blake is a great resource that walks through some quick steps to take a workflow from messy to well documented: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKPquCPauMY
