Make INTERFACE tools use ANNOTATION like all other tools

For example I have an ERROR MESSAGE tool that is rather verbose.  I chose to modify the annotation as:  ZIP Code Check.  I presumed that the result would simply be "ZIP Code Check", but Alteryx added that to the beginning of the annotation rather than replacing the whole annotation.  I reported this as a bug, but was told that this was designed to operate in this manner.  It was suggested that I bring this out as a "New Idea" to the community for review.  If you agree that the tools should operate in a similar fashion for annotation (or other actions) across the pallet, please STAR this.  Otherwise, I'm happy to hear your feedback.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Likewise - When you annotate an Action tool (for example: Update Input Data Tool) it appends your annotation with the original annotation.  

 

If there is a reason for this I'd be curious to hear it - otherwise I expect tools to behave the same - whatever annotation I enter should be it.

 

Cheers,

Bob
