Hi everyone!   The Q4 2018 Business and Location Insights data packages includes analytics-ready data from a variety of vendors as well as data-specific analysis tools to get the most from the packaged data. All data packages will be available via the Downloads & Licenses portal later today. US & Canada Business Insights customers should receive their hard drives later this week, but you are also welcome to download the data from the portal.   Here are a couple important notes for this release. Please see the product specific release notes for more information. Product name change (does not affect product contents): US and Canada "Data", which includes demographics, business lists, etc., are now called "Business Insights" All "Spatial" packages are now called "Location Insights" DigitalGlobe Satellite Maps base URL changed to whitelist.alteryx.com/v1/dgmaps/v1. See this post for more details.   All documentation packages included in the attached .zip file. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.   Happy Alteryxing!   Jerad Rades Team Lead, Data Products   Note that this post includes a corrected version of the US Data Variable List that was not included on the hard drive or via the Downloads & Licenses portal. The correction corresponds to TrueTouch variables within the ConsumerView dataset - there were no new variables with the Q4 2018 release.

As of the Q4 2018 data release, Experian's CAPE offering accessed through Alteryx's Demographics Analysis toolset will move to an annual update schedule instead of semi-annual. The change was made by the vendor, whose research determined there isn't enough variance to warrant updating the Annual Update to the Thin Update (“A” to “B” in Alteryx terms).   This affects the following data sets:   CAPE Demographics, “Current Year Estimates” and “Five Year Projections” (CYE & FYP) CAPE Seasonal Population CAPE Daytime Population CAPE Consumer Expenditure, CYE & FYP CAPE Retail Demand & Retail Supply (Scaled) American Community Survey, Mosaic Workplace and Mosaic Residential are already on an annual update schedule and will remain on that release cycle. However, the annual Mosaic updates will be delivered with the rest of the CAPE updates beginning with the Q2 2019 release.   This change does not affect the quarterly Alteryx Data delivery frequency to our customers, as geographies and other data sets follow their own release cycles. We will continue to deliver Alteryx Data quarterly as the other data sets included within the offering follow their own update release cycles.

Hi, we had shared in our release documentation that end users are reminded if they have not installed the geocoder and reverse geocoder macros from the Q3 2017 release that they do so due to several key changes implemented in that release.

Symptoms This note is to alert users of Alteryx 8.6 to 10.5 of an error message that may appear if a user previously installed the combined US and Canada CASS dataset and then in subsequent data updates separately installs CASS for a single country. Some clients reported receiving a message in the Alteryx Designer that “CASS is not installed properly or it has expired.” Once CASS is installed for both countries, supporting program files continue to look for the combined dataset even if CASS is uninstalled and a single country is reinstalled. Diagnosis The instigating files are identified and a resolution is being explored, however, this error appears to be inherent to the source data itself. Solution Action required: 1. Close open instances of Alteryx 2. Delete the CASS.ini file which in most cases resides on the user’s local drive (C:\ProgramData\Alteryx\DataProducts\DataSets\CASS\CASS.ini) 3. Locate the most recent CASS installs and re-run the installation executables 4. Relaunch Alteryx and verify the CASS tool is no longer reporting an error

  This note is to alert users of Alteryx 8.6 to 10.1 of a potential message window that may appear after updating the US and Canadian CASS engine. Subsequent to completing the CASS installation and closing the installer, some clients have reported receiving a message window stating that the program may not have been installed correctly. This message can be disregarded and will not impact dataset functionality.   The source of the problem is being identified and a fix will be included in future Alteryx software releases.     Action Simply choose ‘Cancel’ to close the Program Compatibility Assistant window. Alteryx can then be opened and workflows can be run as normal.   Was the installation of CASS successful? Yes, CASS was installed fully and all scripts have finished running.   Will this message impact my installation or existing workflows? This message is entirely cosmetic; there are no impacts to the installation or workflows.
