Learning Three Kinds of Batch Macros in 1, 2, 3!

A Batch Macro is a special kind of macro that is designed to be run repeatedly in the context of a workflow. When you think of Batch Macros you think: automation and in-line decisioning. Learn about three examples of Batch Macros including: opening a ton of files with varying schemas and convert into the optimized yxdb format, opening and unioning files with similar schemas where the dynamic input won’t work, and dynamically changing settings downstream based on criteria determined upstream. Typically, these kinds of specifications require you to run it two, three, or a hundred times, but you can create a Batch Macro instead! Learn all about the joy and time savings Batch Macros can bring, plus a few tips and tricks along the way.

Thinking in Macros - Increasing Productivity at Fallon Health

Manual processes that involve sharing and modifying data always get messy. While critical data elements are maintained, Excel files often endure many schema changes over time, as columns are added or removed to meet business needs. This can make loading every file used a frustrating, time-consuming, and manual process, particularly when you only care about a handful of fields that never changed! Learn how a simple macro saved Fallon Health 40 hours of manual effort with 15 minutes of macro development, allowing them to report on turnaround time, even as business process requirements shifted. A second example discusses how an iterative macro solved a complex optimization issue: evenly allocating work to employees, which can be used across industries to tackle similar challenges (maximizing shelf space, assigning crews to routes, etc.).
