Challenge #326: Totals and Subtotals Part 2

Rockodecto

Hi all,

 

I'm new to Alteryx (started about a few weeks ago) -- I based my solution on this challenge off of the solution from challenge #324. In #324, I noticed that dynamic rename was used and I decided to use that again for the solution here (see my file attached, I didn't edit the final pivot table so don't mind that). 

 

In the solution for #326, I see that the columns were renamed directly in the summing function (using the summarize tool), as opposed to dynamic rename. I'd like to confirm that using dynamic rename is better, as it allows for automatic updating for future incoming columns. Is that correct? 

 

Thanks!
