Bring Your Insights to Life With Alteryx Visualytics

What can I do with the Insight Tool?
With the new Insight tool you can build and combine multiple interactive charts so your stakeholders can investigate and focus on what is important to them.  The Insight Tool leverages our new chart capabilities, so you can easily customize your charts, adding a drill down to each so when you drill down into one chart it reflects across all other charts.

What Does It Mean To Be An Extension?

Throughout 2018, we have evolved our strategy and capabilities around extensions. Qlik's open platform has always allowed developers to build new functionality that takes advantage of our engine and extends the capabilities of our analytics products. Historically, extensions were typically created by third parties and largely unsupported.
