Onboarding Tour

The onboarding tour is available to all users from the Home page. You can toggle display of it as needed.

Getting Started? Try out the embedded tour to see how Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition can accelerate and enhance your data wrangling.This feature may not be enabled in your environment. Please contact your Alteryx administrator.

NOTE: Do not have multiple windows open to the application when using the onboarding tour. Avoid using with any form of shared account.

To begin the tour, click Show Tour.

NOTE: The onboarding tour uses a sample dataset that has been installed for you. When the tour is completed, it is removed from the Home page and cannot be replayed. The flow, dataset, and recipe remain in your account for your reference.

Tip: Use the links on the right side of the page to access additional resources.


 From the Home page, you can quickly access your recent activities in  Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition or jump to creating flows and importing datasets. 

  • Import Data: Import new datasets into  Designer Cloud Enterprise Edition. See Import Data Page.
  • Create Flow: Create a new flow to hold your datasets. See Create Flow Page.

Recently Updated

Access the flows that have been recently changed. Click the flow name to open it. See Flow View Page.

Overwriting results from one tab through another is certainly possible.
