Spotfire Analyst - Add more information for transformations in the Data Canvas

When displaying the transformations under the Data Canvas, when many transformations are performed, it is tricky to just have the transformation sequence number, without the name of a column for example. This would lead to Edit several times in the Transform data window.

After clicking on a data table, displaying the transformations.

  1. Change column names

  2. Filter rows

  3. Caculate new column

  4. Caculate new column

  5. Caculate new column

  6. Caculate new column

  7. Caculate new column

  8. Caculate new column

  9. Caculate new column

  10. Caculate new column

  11. Caculate new column

  12. Caculate new column

  13. Caculate new column

  14. Caculate new column

When clicking on the 3 vertical dots to edit the transformations, a list appears in a new "format". Only the performed action is displayed. No sequence number.

Change column names

Filter rows

Calculate new column

Calculate new column

The Transform data windows is lacking transformation sequence number and column name / single value where applicable.

Example of enhanced view:

  1. Change column names

  2. Filter rows

  3. Caculate new column - External ID

  4. Caculate new column - Internal ID

  5. Caculate new column - Enchanved View

  6. Caculate new column - New Idea ID

  7. Caculate new column - City

  8. Caculate new column - Region

  9. Caculate new column - Country

  10. Caculate new column - World

  11. Caculate new column - Galaxy

  12. Caculate new column - ...........

  13. Caculate new column - ...........

  14. Caculate new column - ...........

...

Could TIBCO enhance these views?

Thank you for your consideration.

    I just add the possibility to name the transformation step.

    Just like in Power Automate :)

Allow data transformations to be named in data canvas

Merged
It's hard to understand a data flow in the data canvas when data transformations do not have informative names. I might have a dozen or more, and they are all either "Added rows" or "Added columns". I need to be able to name them, and also add a d...
