The bak file that is automatically created (and re-created if deleted) really clutters up our folders.Please allow us to either turn it off, or specify a different location to hold our back up files.Thanks
Thank you all for your feedback and use cases! I've insured this feedback has been put on our product team's radar for consideration in regards to this idea.
Agreed, they clogs up my directories
I would like this. It can cause errors Cannot Overwrite Calgary File - Alteryx Community and clutters things.
This macro provides a workaround to delete these *.bak files, if anyone is interested.
Delete Files - Alteryx Community
I use Alteryx to generate 200+ reports, same report, different recipients. I before sending, I have to inspect each to look for and fix any formatting errors. Having to sift though an equal number of bak files is beyond tedious and time consuming, especially when bumping up against deadlines. Please make optional or allow us to designate a central folder. Mil gracias in advance.
