Once you've installed the Alteryx software, your license file and datasets, there is a quick and easy way to test that everything has been configured correctly. Step1 Attached to this article is an Alteryx module. Double click on that icon. It will open Alteryx and ask if you'd like to Import Module Package. Choose a location on your desktop using the Disk icon, then click Import at the bottom of the window. The Module Import Process window will open then you'll see Import Complete. When asked if you want to load the module, click Yes. The module will open.                                              Looking at the module you'll see a workflow of tool icons in the center. To the left of the icons is a description of the tool, and to the right shows which data needs to be installed. Step 2 In the icon tray towards the top of the screen you'll see a Run button -- a green arrow pointing to the right. It is to the right of the zoon icons. Click on the Run button and the module will process. While running, that button will change to a red stop sign. You'll see small white boxes and % numbers appear on each tool. When the module is complete you'll see a Finished box which shows the processing time. Click OK. Look in the Output window in the lower left of the screen. If any of the lines are red that means there is an error.  You'll also see a red box around any of the tools that have data or licensing issues. The box to the right of each icon will detail what is missing. Follow the steps to resolve the issue, then re-run the module. Also, look at each of the icons. If you see any small lock icons, you will need to install the Alteryx license. Step 3 Click on the Allocate Append tool (second from the last ). Look in the Properties window on the upper left of the screen. Use the drop down at the top to check each installed dataset. As you select them, look in the Pick Variable box and be sure there are no red check boxes...if so, you'll need to install that data license. Once you've confirmed that the module will run with no errors/red boxes, Alteryx is ready to go! If you have any questions or need installation assistance, send an email to and one of our associates will contact you as soon as possible.
