One Tool Example

Map Legend Splitter has a One Tool Example. Visit Sample Workflows to learn how to access this and many other examples directly in Alteryx Designer.

Use Map Legend Splitter to take a legend from the Report Map tool and split it into its component parts. Once split, the legend can be customized by the use of other tools. Use the Map Legend Builder tool to easily build the legend again.

Configure the Tool

This tool is expecting a report snippet that consists of a map legend. This information is contained in the Legend field. Prior to using this tool, ensure a Report Map tool is upstream. On your Report Map tool, set your Legend Position to Separate Field.

Ensure the Legend Field is set to your legend field. If the legend was created using the Report Map tool, the legend field is titled Legend.
