Challenge #86: Create a Macro that Generates Past Dates

Alteryx Certified Partner

Blimey, well the workflow was eeeeasy but trying to get the action to update the filter tool was a terrible swine. I had to actually research how to do it! Thanks to @SeanAdams for his tool mastery posts

Here's my solution. Macros are my nemesis, so this was good practice.

Ended up with a very similar solution to many others, but after having seen some of the solutions posted, I'm gonna go back and do this again using different tools

So I'm new to Alteryx and this is the first challenge I've responded to. It looks like everyone who has shared an image of their macro has used the generate rows tool, but I used the R tool, so I thought I'd share my solution.

Running it as an app helped me troubleshoot it.  First time using Detour/Detour End.

Happy Little macro with all bonuses :)

First time posting a challenge answer. Hopefully I've done this right. 

Happy new year all.
