Hi, besides the step names you can also use the 200 character description for each step. And in the latest release you can also move step around to rearrange the flow, which is useful for creating white space and visual groupings, and there's of course coloring the steps.
That said, in more complicated flows I need something more than what Prep provides. For Prep my only option is an associated document where I lay out the purpose of the flow, the inputs & outputs, and cover the intent of the steps in the major areas. This is a minor reason why we haven't switched to Prep yet from another visual ETL tool, in that tool we're able to add comments & containers as needed to make flows more self-documenting.
Thank you for your thoughts, and confirming that I am not alone.
I like what I've been able to do with Prep so far. But, it is these little "nits" that make me want to find another tool.
BTW I also like the trajectory that Prep is on with it’s development, and I’m hopeful that some day it’ll be able to be my primary tool.
