We're actively looking for ideas on how to improve Weekly Challenges and would love to hear what you think!Submit Feedback
@JoeM. Woohoo! Cracked the top ten!
I've been doing the challenges as a way to learn Alteryx. I'm doing them in numerical order starting with Beginner, then Intermediate, Expert. It's been a load of fun.
I just finished 117 and I'm looking for the next intermediate, but it seems your table isn't rendering past 118. Arggh! It stops just before the difficulty level!
I guess I'll just try it and see how it goes
Thanks for setting this up and maintaining it!
Thanks for this @JoeM,
So, just to streamline this, I built a macro to scrape this information so you can see all weekly challenges with difficulty rating and category, and which ones you've completed.
You can download it from the gallery HERE (also attached for ease)
It takes about 15 minutes to run on my laptop because of all the HTML parsing...I'm sure it could be streamlined a bit.
Right, a big thank you to @patrick_digan for pointing me in the direction of the Lithium API, that has made it a lot easier. I've updated the previous macro, and I've attached it here. Should run in about 30 seconds now.
So, you can now get all the challenges and if you've finished them or not!
Hi mceleavey - I'm very new to Alteryx. Can you please provide some instructions on how to run the "weekly challenge index.yxmc" file? When I open it and click run, it provides a bunch of warnings and messages, but no output.
If you go to Options->User Settings->Edit User Settings on the "Macros" tab you should set a path to your macro folder. Save the file in there.
You should now be able to select the tool from your "Connectors" section.
If you're receiving errors you maybe need to upgrade to version 2018.2
