10/17 User Group Recap

6 - Meteoroid

Ashley, Michael and I would like to thank everyone for joining us at the first KC Alteryx User Group meeting.  We are ecstatic about the turnout and are excited to build the local Alteryx community so we can share ideas, expand our knowledge of Alteryx and help others solve problems they may be stuck on.


Here is a recap of what we covered and other information.



Many of you have voiced the value of seeing use cases from other Alteryx Users across industries.  Do you have a use case you’d like to present or do you have a use case you’d like some to cover?  If so, reply to this thread or take our survey with your topic ideas.



Quarterly meetings



Ian from the Alteryx provided a demo of 2018.3 features including Visualytics, Caching, Python Tool, Server Scheduling, & Node Prioritization. Caching allows you to freeze your data at any point in the workflow so you can more quickly validate changes as you are building your analysis.   The feature was a crowd pleaser.



Michael with Ivy Investments/Waddell & Reed created a workflow on the fly.  He demonstrated how to transform an excel file into a format that is Tableau friendly.  By using RegEx, Joins, Multi-Row Formulas and more he was able to quickly clean and transform many files formatted the same way.
