Exploring Advanced Designer – Batch Macros for Beginners

Organizations of every type across the globe are hiring people with data analytics skills to leverage insights from a tsunami of data across all lines of business. Alteryx, the analytics automation company, created the SparkED program to empower learners of all skill levels — across all disciplines and areas of study — to further develop the analytics skills they need to question, understand, and solve with data.


This workshop series is for students and learners who are eager for more advanced Alteryx use cases, and ready to take their skill level beyond the industry-recognized CORE certification. Throughout these trainings, Alteryx ACEs (analytics experts and community advocates) will demonstrate advanced data preparation, blending, and analyzing techniques using real-life scenarios. If you’re a fan of technology, thinking creatively, and curious about expanding your data analytics and Designers skillsets to elevate your career options, these sessions are designed for you!


Workshop Topic | Batch Macros for Beginners

Workshop Description: Are you new to working with macros in Alteryx Designer? Then join Chris as he covers the basics, such as working with macro inputs, adding a macro to a workflow, and configuring variables.


Workshops will be structured with mixed content, including career awareness where the ACE instructor will provide a brief background about their academic and professional journey. Then we’ll dive into presentation and practical Alteryx Designer application, followed-up with time for Q & A. Tune into other workshops of this Exploring Advanced Designer series where we’ll explore topics such as:

  • Macros for GL and TB data sources
