SOLVED

HELP! There's been a murder in the Solutions Center!

We just found T-Ryx, the Alteryx legend, dead in the Solutions Center! Among his possessions we found this note. We're calling on the community to help us solve this crime and keep the Grand Prix running.

 

I've included the file he mentions, as well as a copy of the normal version, perhaps it will help.

 

Make sure you show up at the Community Hub with your solution to part 1 before we'll give you the clues for part 2.

How about this approach?

That was fast work, glad we're making progress. The stakes have been raised though; I've just heard that T-Ryx has been seen alive in the Grand Prix Expo. Clearly this is an impersonator trying to get a chance to derail tonights Grand Prix.

 

Thankfully I've just received the next message from the real (and very dead) T-Ryx. We need to work fast!

Oops.  I clearly didn't ace it in my first attempt.  Think I got it now though.  😉

Awesome work. The final message has come throught from T-Ryx - I've downloaded the tracking data he mentions and included it below. Once you've identified the suspects let the community team know and they'll alert the authorities. We're nearly there!

While correlation is not causation, meeting 26 times in 5 days is pretty suspicious.

 

*Edit: John, you are correct. Nice work!

I had 26 for them, accounting for the A meeting B is the same as B meeting A; I generated a match key that I forced uniqueness on... there may be other ways to go about it, but in the spirit of the Gran Prix, I hurried.  🙂
