Happy 2020, Alteryx Community!

 

With the start of a new decade we wanted to make sure we also started our year off with a real bang. And what better way then implementing customer driven ideas into the product our latest version release, version 2020.1 which dropped today

 

In 2020.1, we implemented 29 of your ideas!

Making up a total of 258 likes!

 

That's a lot of likes! Almost as many likes as @SeanAdams on the Designer Ideas Board alone, not that we're comparing...

All these ideas originated from one of our four product boards and we truly wanted to highlight just how important these ideas and our users are to the process and making us better.

 

So from all of Alteryx, thank you for Amplying Alteryx!
