good practice for reporting tools! I am still learning

Hi! Here my solution :)

 

 

Spoiler
I made it this way:

1) export png pictures to a folder, ordered alphabetically, and then move that folder to Tableau's shapes folder
2) export data from Alteryx to a .hyper Tableau extract file
3) create a Tableau Dashboard with that .hyper file as an input, and reading shapes from pngs folder

Same as @patrick_digan and others, I thought it would be handy to link to the help documentation for each tool, so I added a hyperlink to the tool rank number.

 

My colleagues and I are doing a walking/fitness challenge leading up to Alteryx Inspire, and I needed to scrape the tool images for our tracking map. Luckily, I had parsed out the help URLs while I was at it, so I had a list ready to go! I did have to adjust a few tools such as the (deprecated) Charting tool (now Interactive Chart).

I added this to the beginning of my challenge 98 workflow, and I modified the Report Text tool containing the rank number to be a hyperlink instead of text only.

I decided to sort the table so that it would match the order that the tools appear in the tool bar above in Designer!

After this challenge, I believe that I'm all caught up with the superstars @NicoleJohnson and @patrick_digan
It was a long, tough road....

Couldn't get the images (with backgrounds) to export properly to png to use in Tableau, so I just made the backgrounds myself in Tableau! They are sorted by tool category and you filter to the tool categories that you want to look at

I converted the workflow to an app, using a Listbox to select tool categories and masking all tools from other categories.

Here's mine (link on tableau public
As per I struggled with the reporting tools. Outputting the tool icons as pngs made them lose their alignment (and just look awful) So I had to ouput as .htm files and then use Alteryx to create a .bat script that screenshotted google chrome to convert them all to .png. Took some trial and error, but got there in the end

Like others I struggled outputting my pngs, so I had to output them as .htms and then batch convert them so I could use them in tableau. Here's my interactive output  Interactivity comes through highlight actions and control over the treemap's size

A lot of work went into this, but not in Alteryx. Mainly to create images and put them in something interactive in Tableau.

 

My workflow:

Images I created using the solution from the previous week's challenge:

I am not sure whether I can embed the dashboard in this reaction text, but you can try the following URL to see what I created:
