Happy (almost) fourth of July!
 
Before you head out for what we hope is a long relaxing holiday weekend, filled with fireworks, hot dogs, waterskiing & more, take a moment to find out what's new in Alteryx Community v5.2!

This month's release includes new Product Certification sharing mechanisms, the launch of the Inspire Europe 2018 | Buzz, Beta Program resources, and several UI & content updates -- all of which emphasize easy access to helpful resources.
 
Here are the details of what's included in v5.2:

In an effort to better reflect the depth and breadth of content & contributions of our Community, we've changed the name of our community centric blog to the Alter.Nation Blog (formerly Community News).

 

In addition to the name change, the Alter.Nation Blog is designed with YOU in mind. We hope to share more of your life altering analytics stories in upcoming months, from Women of Analytics spotlights, video interviews on the Road to Inspire, to ACE features, thought leadership & more.  

 

If you are interested in contributing to any of our Blogs, or have ideas for future programming, please let us know.

 

 
Alteryx Certified Bragging Rights

To help you show off your hard-earned Alteryx Certification, we’re making it easier to add your credentials to your LinkedIn profile with an “Add to Profile” button and a URL to your certificate! We’re also providing you with the certification logo* to use on your website, signature line, marketing collateral, or anywhere you want to show off your Alteryx chops.
 
Going forward, users who pass the exam will receive the corresponding certification logo and LinkedIn URL along with the Certificate via email.  If you completed your certification prior to June 28th, you can expect to receive an email with the newly available assets this week.
 
If you have questions, please contact our Certification Team directly. They'll be glad to help!
 
*Information on appropriate use of certification credentials and logos can be found in our Certification Policies.

Ideas Search Validation

 

In an effort to improve our ability to manage and respond to customer ideas, and encourage users to comment or vote on existing ideas where possible, we've implemented a new feature which we feel is a small step in the right direction.

 

When submitting a new idea, you are now required to search the community for similar posts prior to submitting your own.

 

Check Title-ideas.pngStep 1 - Check for Similar Ideas

 Validate Search-ideas.pngStep 2 - Comment and vote on similar ideas or "Continue and Post"

Thank you in advance for helping us consolidate similar ideas and avoid duplicate postings from the get go!
