Together We Solve! Our March community platform release was all about helping you help others. We launched our Virtual Solutions Center (see details below), and improved the community performance. 

 

Community Homepage Stats

Hooray! Our community is growing so quickly, we decided to modify the statistics on the homepage to show our stats with "K" instead of the entire number. As of today: 

 
239.6K Posts
135.5K Likes 
16.8K Solutions
 
 

 

Virtual Solutions Center

Are you adjusting to work-flowing from home? Need some help getting set up? Set up a meeting with our experts at the Alteryx Virtual Solution Center, and let's get this done, together. Hop on over to the Virtual Solutions Center (VSC) and schedule some time. 

 

We also added a prominent call-to-action on the landing page for convenient scheduling. 

 

Performance Improvements

We've completed some performance improvements this sprint - specifically focused on the homepage. You should notice the landing page being a bit zippier to load, along with some of the images being cached. 

 

Community Ideas 

We've mirrored the Community Idea statuses with the Product Ideas statuses for more consistency. You may have received notifications of this change - apologies for any potential spam, but we hope that having all Ideas on the community have the same statuses will help you better understand what phase of the process the Idea is in.  


Miscellaneous Bug Fixes and Updates

  • Renamed "HELP" to "Community FAQ" in the profile dropdown

  • Fixed issue with TinyMCE / Editor where the body did not accurately display how it would look 

  • Resolved an Accessibility issue where users could create a post without any content (which in turn caused issues with Screenreaders)

  • Fixed issue with Use Case button not showing for anonymous users

  • Changed Spanish and Portuguese communities to have threaded format

  • Resolved issue where search bar 'blips'
