SharePoint List Input Tool

The SharePoint List Input tool reads lists from SharePoint to be used as data input in a workflow.

Configure the tool

  1. Select a SharePoint Version: 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, or Online.
  2. Type the full SharePoint URL or click the drop-down to select a saved URL.
  3. When scheduling your workflow to run from Alteryx Server, the URL must be accessible outside of your Windows account. For example, WebDAV paths are not supported. See Schedule Workflows.

  4. Type your User Name and Password. The user name must include the domain name.
  5. (Optional) Select Save connection history to save the connection URL and credentials when you run the workflow. You can save up to ten connections.
  6. Select a List from the drop-down.
  7. Select a View from the drop-down. The available views are determined by the list you select.
  8. (Optional) Specify a Record Limit. To read in all records, leave this field blank.

SharePoint automatically stores date/time data in UTC format. Date/time data is automatically converted to your local timezone when Alteryx reads a SharePoint list.
