How can one participate if someone has a MacBook? I have been trying to download Alteryx but saw that it doesn't support

@pragnyan Alteryx Designer is a PC application. If you have a Mac, I recommend getting a VM, Bootcamp or Parallels.

Ohhh, I just realized I signed up using an old datathon page, that's why I didn't get the right links. Thank you for answering my question!

Hi Bhumika,

I have signed up for a trial on Designer Cloud and started experimenting with workflows there. As I am working through some datasets and workflows, I realized there's no capability to download the workflow. Wondering whether I can take a screenshot of the workflow to submit for the competition. Please let me know. Thanks.
