Function Tool for App Builder


App Builder is a new and evolving product available with the Alteryx Analytics Cloud Platform. Functionality is subject to change without notice as we continue to refine and enhance your experience. We appreciate your understanding and welcome your feedback on Alteryx Community as we continue to improve App Builder!

Use the Function tool to create a new column of data that contains the result of a mathematical formula.

Configure the Tool

  1. Enter a Output Column name. This is the column that will contain the results of the function and must not match any incoming column names.

  2. Enter the Data for the function in the Expression Editor. You can use parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, and concatenation operators in the function. Denote column references in your function using brackets.

  3. Select Save to save your Function tool configuration.
