Image Tool

The Image Tool adds graphics to reports.

Configuration Properties:

The Image Tool allows for a static image to be stored in the workflow or for an image to be retrieved from disk at run time.  The image tool accepts.png,.jpg or gif formats.

Image Handling: There are two options when including images in reports that tell Alteryx where to retrieve the images and whether or not to store the image with the workflow.

  1. Modify Filename for each record: This is an optional setting to be used when the file path (or file names) of the images to be included in the report are contained within the input data stream. When checked, the filename can be edited based on other field data. File name/path editing choices include:

Image Name

Stop with error if file not found: When checked, processing will stop and an error will be reported that the specified image could not be found.

When using a static image, the tool will provide a red warning message if the image is over 100KB letting the user know it will be taking up that much space in the saved workflow.
