Download and Use Predictive Tools

Last modified: August 24, 2021

The predictive tools include all tools in the Predictive category. The default installation of Alteryx Designer does not include all predictive tools. To install the entire set of predictive tools, you must download and install the predictive tools separately from Designer. For an overview of the predictive tools, see this video.

You must download and install Designer before you can download the predictive tools.

Admin Versus Non-Admin Installation

Options for installation include admin and non-admin. Generally, the admin installation applies to all users on a machine, whereas the non-admin installation does not.

  • If you use the admin version of Alteryx Designer, you need the admin installation of the predictive tools.
  • If you use the non-admin version of Alteryx Designer, you need the non-admin installation of the predictive tools.

  5. Select the link for the product to download the file.

Alteryx downloads the file to the default download folder for your machine.
