It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
Figuring out how many envelopes can fit in a box, Apple Health Data, job offer evaluations, vehicle cost of ownership per mile, and home solar panel installation are some of the more unusual use cases I have had. You have any good ones @ydmuley?
That is awesome Sean! I have a couple inboxes that need cleaning. Were you able to clean up the rules? Now I am trying to think of a periodic flow that could help you're inbox reorganize itself. Were you able to push the rules back to your mailing application?
Hey Andrew - sadly, I couldn't push the rules back automatically (our exchange server is fairly locked down), but it is definitely possible to identify the rules, and then either implement them through code or through the rules capability in outlook. Bit manual, but helps to bring sense to the inbox a bit.
For my entire adult life, I'd wanted to build a program/script/macro that would take a data file and a shape file, and output a properly formatted Google Earth KML choropleth complete with 3D polygons. I wanted to be able to use color and altitude to display two separate variables, and use the inherent time codes within KMLs to show change over time.
Then I found Alteryx.
I'm able to hide the part of the logic for writing out the KML inside of a macro, and the part of the logic that formats the shape file and data file outside of it. After 7 years of dabbling, I finally built the tool that I had always wanted!
Ok, I'm not proud of this (that's an utter lie, of course I am) but I had been in a dispute with a company over the refunding of a faulty item I had purchased. This went on for a while until they stopped returning my calls and emails.
I used alteryx to scrape the contact details of the company directors, built a report which generated an output email which was automatically emailed to each director every hour on the hour until the situation resolved itself.
