This is probably just the neat-freak inside of me but I've been noticing more an more Community posts that don't really belong where they are. Examples:
Someone poses a question in the wrong Discussion category.
Someone poses a Knowledge Base or Live Training style article as a Discussion.
Someone poses a question in the Ideas area.
Someone poses an idea for something that can already be done with Alteryx (something that should be moved to a Discussion)
Someone poses a discussion only to find out that there is no solution (something that should be moved to Ideas)
To help the moderators out, I think adding a "Suggest Move" option to the Options Menu on a post (pictured below) would be valuable.
When selecting this option a little window could pop up with a list of the different areas of the Community. The user would then select the one that they feel the post should be moved too. Moderators would then see all the suggested moves on a special screen and perform the move if they agree. Ideally, any hyperlinks to the moved post that exist within other posts on the community would be redirected.
The positive benefits of this would be:
Making it easier to find content
Refining the scope of Ideas Alteryx needs to consider
Reducing the number of unanswered posts for people seeking to help solve others' discussions (there's a lot of Live Training posts that appear in the Unanswered Posts queue)
