I'm curious to hear if you've used Alteryx outside of your usual day-job to take on a fun project or help something in your personal life. I used Alteryx to connect to an API for a video game I play to crunch some numbers on the best items to use. I'm sure some of you out there have some very creative workflows!
I downloaded my Goodreads data and analyzed it in Designer. 📚I especially wanted to find books that would be more accessible as e-books through the library, but it was pretty fun to also check out trends in my quantity of reading over time, plus correlations between my ratings and books' genre, age, etc.
I have way too much fun with Alteryx, and most of the weird things I do become Weekly Challenges 😄
Yes, I've spent the last few weeks looking to see what I could find out from all of the personal data I can get access to. I've included links to all of these below as short videos, but can share these workflows if people are interested in applying it to their own scenarios.
Awesome question! Here's a few from me:
1. Spotify analysis
2. Pricing analysis for trading.
3. Probably shouldn't share this but hey ho:
I had a problem with a product I purchased and the company refused to respond to me requests for a refund. I used Alteryx to scrape the details for the board members of the company. I then automated an email from the server to send them an email on the hour every hour using a FROM email with an incremental number so they couldn't block me.
I ran that for two days until the problem resolved itself.
Don't try that at home, kids.
