Alteryx tools used to connect

Outlook 365 Input Tool

Outlook 365 Input Tool

If you drag and drop a message to an email, Outlook attaches it as EML Outlook Item. Outlook 365 doesn’t support the EML Outlook Item files and will skip them.

Data Connection Manager

Outlook Input supports Data Connection Manager for an easier and a safer storage of your credentials. Create a connection to Outlook and easily reuse the stored credentials in workflows that include Outlook Input. Alteryx Server requires stored credentials to successfully run the published workflows.

Enable AMP Engine

Make sure you have the AMP engine enabled for the workflows which contain Outlook Input to leverage the full potential of Designer capabilities.
