I'm echoing your response here merely for convenience of reference.

"Alteryx also has its own visualization tools, not as slick as Tableau but there. Also to simply get the data output from Alteryx in a table form, correctly orientating and ordering the fields, and then paste into an excel graph template and you should be good to go."

Well, I have enough experience with Alteryx to have no problem extracting tabular output from same. Indeed, the tabular format controls that Alteryx supplies, are sophisticated enough to allow direct transfer to PowerPoint slides with no more further processing than running a few VBA macros to "fine-tune" the slide format for the presentation. What I was hoping for were Alteryx graphic output tools offering the same level of control. You are right when you say that the visualization tools aren't as slick as Tableau. With Alteryx' graphics, I don't even have enough control over font selection (our organization requires Century Gothic font), which along with other limitations, causes Alteryx graphic output to be not "slick" enough. I was hoping that you or someone would be able to point out what I was missing when I'm searching for more graphics capability in Alteryx. However, your response gives me the impression that I haven't overlooked anything, and that I'll just have to hope that future Alteryx versions will start to include the better graphics output controls. (The slide count, for one of our presentations, varies from about 174 to 200. For that reason, any process that shortens and quickens the pipeline from raw data to slides, is highly sought after.)

Thanks, anyway,
