Thanks, Joshua and Chris for pointing out the importance of using patterns in workflows. And indeed it is more than moving parts of the code to a macro. You have to start thinking in (micro or macro) solution patterns and when you encounter them move them into their own component be it a container, a macro, or another way to encapsulate them for re-use later.

It reminds me of class design in the old days of coding. And you can build a domain-specific library of visual parts for your own be it a department, a company, or an enterprise. Increasing the value Alteryx brings even more.
