Description

Oftentimes you may find yourself running the same workflow, and each time you run it, you have to go into Designer and update some values/dates in order to reflect the most recent data. And you most likely have several tool combinations that you do all the time and code virtually the same way each time. In this course, Building Alteryx Apps and Macros, you will learn foundational knowledge/gain the ability to dynamically update those values and combine those tools. First, you will learn what an app is, how it relates to a workflow, and how to build one. Next, you will discover how macros can simplify your Alteryx life by combining tools into a new single and separate tool. Finally, you will explore how to run apps in succession, when one app is dependent upon another process. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of building apps and macros needed to maximize the efficiency of your Alteryx processes.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Michael Barone and welcome to my course building all tricks APS and Mac Rose. I'm a day of scientists, and I'm also one of the approximately 30 worldwide all tricks aces. The Ace title is a designation that all tricks only gets to the most influential and supportive experts of the alter its software and this course you learn how to take your all tricks work close to the next level with APS and macros. Absent, macros can make your life easier for work flows and tool combinations that are repeatedly run on a regular basis. They also both allow for end user interaction so your workflow or tool combination processes can be written generally and then dynamically updated based on each individual users needs for their processes. Some of the major topics that will cover include why you would use an app or macro, how to create a user interface for their users to interact with ABS and Macron's your build and how to make use of chain de functionality when an app is dependent upon another process, completing first. By the end of this course, you'll be able to create Epps and mackerels that allow for the dynamic updating of work flows without having to re create the wheel for processes that are performed often. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basic workings of all tricks designer, including how to build work flows and data processes like Laurel site course Ultra designer. Getting started is a great resource for this. I hope you'll join me as you continue your all tricks journey with this building. Ultra ex APS in Macros course at plural site.
