Blog Macro Pack

I am pleased to announce the release of the first version of the Blog macro pack for Alteryx.

Downloadable now at

This is an installable collection of 15 macros collected from the three unofficial Alteryx blogs, with contributions from myself, Ned Harding and Chris Love.  If you are not already following their blogs then please check them out below:

Installation Instructions

Alteryx 9.0 is required to use these macros.
  1. Download the zip file above
  2. Extract it to a location on your machine.  (Preferably not in the Program Files/Alteryx folder)
  3. Run Install.yxwz

Community Supported

As with all content on this blog these macros are not an official Alteryx release and as such they have not been through the full testing process that tools in the product have.  Some of them are prototypes and experimental, but that's what some of what makes them so fun.  

Although we make all the effort we can to make theses fully functional macros I am sure there are some bugs in there somewhere.  But having said that if you find an issue let me know either in the comments below or drop me personally a note and I'll take a look, or if you can see how to fix it yourself then even better!  Drop me a fixed version and I will include it in the next release.

Also if you have any ideas for future macros or improvements to the ones we have then again let me know!
