Undesired behavior using the "Add All Browses" feature on tools with multiple outputs

5 - Atom

Hi Alteryx team,


please see gif below. I observed the following behavior earlier and wanted to ask if it is desired or a possible bug.


When I add a tool to the canvas that has multiple output options and have one browse tool attached to one of the outputs already, I have an undesirable behavior subsequently using the "Add all Browses" feature. If I already have one browse tool attached to one of the outputs, I would expect that the "Add all Browse" feature only adds browse tools to the outputs that do not have a browse tool attached.


Thank you

Hi @bigdataranger 


That has been the functionality of the "Add Browse" feature as long as it has been a feature. It's technically not wrong since it is adding all Browses (albeit, again).


Maybe this could be submitting in the Designer Ideas section as a potential option or enhancement in the future?
