I have started a program at work called "Friday Fun with Alteryx" and each Friday we are releasing an Alteryx flow which is not work related. 

One of them just ask you to input your birthday and e-mail address and you will receive an e-mail with the day of the week when you were born, your star sign and also your age in days. 🙂

Another flow that we have created for Friday Fun with Alteryx was the "Alteryx Cooking Book". There is a database with over 200 recepies from romanian cusine and the user just choose one of them and receive it via e-mail.

I love this thread! None of mine are really crazy, but they were super fun to build!


  • While learning spatial tools, I practiced by using Alteryx to prep the data for this Road Trip Radio map. I was curious about our listening habits (and other metrics about our trip), and had recently done weekly challenge #84: Map Hurricane Harvey's Storm Evolution, so I wanted to try building polylines with the log data from my car!


  • We also used Alteryx to create randomized bingo cards for our annual analyst retreat... Building the bingo cards was a reporting tools workout, for sure!

Hello again,


In our Friday Fun program we have developed another flow that retrieve you the temperature in the selected location. We are using some web scrapping for that. Depending of the temperature interval the picture from the e-mail will change. 🙂

Hey, I know this i like 3 years later, but I'm trying to make sense of the Apple Health data export (the giant XML) and was wondering what you did in Alteryx to get some insights from your data. Any tips would be appreciated!
