Partially-Converted Tools

Tools where not all functionality or configuration has been converted from the original engine to AMP. The functionality of all partially-converted tools is retained on AMP, with fall-back to the original engine when needed.

Tool Difference between the original engine and AMP
Blob Convert With AMP, the conversion to a Blob from Text Data and vice versa is not supported. Falls back to the original engine in this scenario.
Create Samples Summarize tool is partially converted.
Formula tool is missing custom expressions/add-ins.
Distance Falls back to the original engine for drive time support and distance to destination.
Download Only UTF8 encoding is supported.
Find Nearest AMP does not support drive time/distance, so it falls back to original engine for those operations.
Formula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
Heat Map Summarize tool is partially converted.
Imputation  
Multi Field Formula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
Multi Row Formula Custom saved expressions are not available on AMP.
Random%Sample Formula tool is missing custom expressions/add-ins.
Summarize Different order for actions which use grouping.
Actions not supported in AMP, including Report\Combine Horizontal, Report\Combine Vertical, Spatial\Combine, Spatial\Create Intersection, and Behavior Analysis\Combine profiles. Falls back to the original engine when used.
Trade Area Falls back to the original engine for drive time support.
Weighted Average Summarize tool is partially converted.
