Thanks everyone who was able to make it out to our December meeting of the Houston Alteryx User Group.

We had a chance to meet and network and discuss the "Tool of the Day," a two-for-one review of the TS Model Factory Tool and TS Forecast Factory Tool. 


The TS Model Factory tool estimates time series forecasting models for multiple groups at once using the ARIMA or ETS methods. The TS Forecast Factory tool provides forecasts from groups of either ARIMA or ETS models for a user-specified number of future periods.

Mauricio Pommier presented a case study on "Gathering API Results through the use of an Iterative Macro."

This Alteryx workflow was created to fetch pricing information for commodities from the Indian government’s website. Their website has an API, which limits the number of records requested to 1000. In many cases, the results from a query will be larger than this limit and, therefore, multiple API calls need to be made. Given that the number of resulting records is variable this macro reads the number of resulting records to perform multiple sequential API calls and concatenate the output. Below is a screenshot of the main workflow and the underlying macro, which performs the bulk of the work.

Finally, we had a WebEx review of the 2018.4 features by Connor Kelleher.
