Built a 2 step chained app solution

 

In the first part of the chained app, you can choose a background.

In the second part, you can customize the names and the message.

Hi @olga_strubbe 

 

There are many ways to do this, depending on the structure of your data and tools used. 

 

For one approach, please see my attachment.

Hi Martin, would you be able to send .yxzp (Alteryx zipped packaged file)?  I am not able to open an app in your zipped folder - as I don't have the latest version of Alteryx.  Many thanks in advance! :)

Try to avoid chained apps as much as possible. They can be a pain to maintain, especially on Server. i did this with a simple application including selecting the card format as well as sender, recipient, language, and message type. I'm almost tempted to use this to generate my cards this year, but I don't think my wife would be too happy about that...

Great challenge for Reporting tools. Struggling for a while to figure out the right configuration to add the text exactly in the middle of the pic.
