Need to Know 

 

We’re cruising down the slopes at full speed and have some big updates to share that were recently launched in February!  

 

  • The new Server Administrator exam and Designer Cloud certifications are officially live in Academy > Certification! Whether you’re looking to showcase your Server or Designer Cloud skills, be sure to check out and take advantage of these free exams. 
  • The Analytics Maturity Assessment is now available to all community members! In less than 15 minutes, this assessment will provide you with a personalized report of your performance and insights into how you can accelerate your analytics journey.  
  • An Author tag has been added to the original poster’s replies to threads.  
  • ‘Getting Started’ is its own item on the main navigation. This re-organization will make it easier for members who are just getting started on their Alteryx journey to find the resources they need.

To prepare for our new exams, you can work through the Designer Cloud learning paths and interactive lessons. Additionally, we are happy to announce that the Designer Core (Desktop) Certification was updated on January 31st! You can review the changes in this blog.

Read & Listen 

 

What are we listening to this month? Well, in episode 124: How data plays a role in the educational landscape, @mikecusic explored how educators use data to inform their instruction for students. And in our latest episode, @Katherineroach35 explained how Auto Insights provides value to all types of businesses.  

 

One of our favorite blogs lately—and one of the community’s favorites, based on the likes—was @DataNath's article on how to troubleshoot Formula tool errors. For another interesting how-to, check out @TheOC's blog on automating PDF ingestion.  

 

We also had some announcements from product marketing this month, including a recap of new Alteryx Analytics Cloud features and a blog about updates in Alteryx Server 2022.3, which is now available! 

 

Conclusion 

 

We’ve had a great start to the year in the Alteryx Community. To all of our awesome members—keep on shredding!
