One Tool Example

Condition has a One Tool Example. Go to Sample Workflows to learn how to access this and many other examples directly in Alteryx Designer.

Use Condition to test for entered values and return either true or false. The Condition tool is similar to a Filter tool.

  • If values meet the criteria of the expression, they come out of the True output.

  • If values do not meet the criteria, they come out of the False output.

Configure the Tool

Use any of these methods to build an expression:

  • Enter text directly in the Expression editor field.

    • Connections from Questions: Values from an Interface tool connected to the Question anchor of a tool with an expression editor, when the tool is used in an app or macro. Use the Question anchor when you want question values to be used as variables in the expression. Visit Interface Tools for more information.

    • Constants: Global variables for a workflow that make it possible to change a value in a single location and have that change apply to the rest of the workflow. Visit Constants for more information.
