Every day, hundreds of users go out of their way to provide valuable insights and expertise in the community — and it's important that we highlight those folks who go above and beyond in their approach to offer support.
Welcome to this month’s edition of the Top Contributors blog. Where each month, the Alteryx community team celebrates and thanks the top community members who have demonstrated a true commitment to helping the community thrive!

The solution Qiu provided automates the standardizing and cleansing process of removing client specific data in the data sets. Keep an eye out on the weekly challenges as this conundrum could be featured.
Despite having different versions of Alteryx, afv2688 was able to provide a workflow that uses a txt to read flat files and changes the length, data type, and column names based on the input of the 2nd file – very cool!
Jcsh_66 is ramping up to become an expert! Check out the post above and learn how to configure the filter tool (using regex) to remove spacing, empty columns, and wording to just produce figures – thank you to all the members who provided insight!
Way to go! Thank you for jumping into the community, the threads you have asked are sure to help others with the same questions. Check out the link above, Mina is still looking for an answer... maybe Mina's fellow Top Contributors can help out? 🙂
Another best-in-class contribution that caught our attention this month, was a response to a question from an Alteryx novice,@StephenXGraham, who was looking for some help to transition an existing process leveraging a 3rd party API to capture data, into Alteryx. The response from @jamielaird not only answered the question, but he also truly went above and beyond in sharing what he knew with the community. Here are just a few things that stood out:
He anticipated potential confusion points, and included pro tips and context — sharing advice that only someone whose used the tools over and over and over, would even think about.
He packaged up an example workflow, with detailed instructions on how to use it.
AND he included a flow chart!
Thank you to all of you for your contributions to the community (and if you didn't see your name in the highlights this time around, check out the leaderboard to see where you stand against your competition). But really, just keep doing what you're doing because that's what makes our community so special!
