What can we do to make your Alteryx Community experience better? Let us know!

Ability to add more detail to Profile pages

Wouldn't it be great to have the option to share a bit more information on your user profile page?


I'm talking about:

- Full name

- Profile

- Location

- Who you work for

- Industry

- Links to social media

- Favourite colour

- First pet's name

- You get the idea.......


The first three are the biggies. It's nice to be able to get a sense of who people are, and to share a bit of who you are with others, and the profile page feels like the perfect place to do this (although it goes without saying that none of this should be mandatory).

Good idea @jamielaird 🙂


I'm changing the status of this to "Comments Requested" to see if others would be interested in this sort of thing as well. It is definitely doable - the thing that takes some time is allowing proper controls to allow users to pick and choose what they would like to share, as not everyone wants to share everything. Good idea though!

Comments requested? Ask and you shall receive!


One of the things that I would hate to see happen is that you open a profile and its all empty, but there is slots where information goes in. Right now is fine for me. Feels like we are on the same level and it doesn't really matter where someone works or what his name is.


All the best,

Be sure to watch the release notes for the formal announcement this week + be notified of additional profile improvements as they are released. Thanks for sharing your idea!
