Alteryx Community Ideas

What can we do to make your Alteryx Community experience better? Let us know!
We've mirrored the Community Idea statuses with the Product Ideas statuses for more consistency. You may have received notifications of this change - apologies for any potential spam, but we hope that having all Ideas on the community have the same statuses will help you better understand what phase of the process the Idea is in. Over the next few weeks, we will update the idea statuses to their new correct version.

Community Macros

Can we have a guide on how to utilize community macros? Under My Settings>Macros there are a lot of slots for different macros, but no explanation of what they are, how to use them, or even when they should (and should not) be used.

Hi @ADerbak - thank you for the suggestion. Great news - this is actually already in place. You can view it by clicking on your profile picture, selecting HELP, then dropdown Posting Messages, and click "Can I create "canned" or "boilerplate" responses?". Direct link is here: https://community.alteryx.com/t5/help/faqpage/title/macros

 

Note: this will be changing to be more clear in the next release to say "How do I use Macros?".

Excellent! I honestly wasn't even aware that page existed. Thank you so much!

@ADerbak My guess is that many people don't. Perhaps renaming it "FAQ" would be better? I think "Help" more implies support vs. community info...
