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.

Drive Decisions with Alteryx Community Polls

Alteryx has to make a lot of little decisions that have a big impact on users such as...

  • What should the default data type be in the new Formula tool?
  • Where in the menu should Manage Data Connections Be?
  • Should the Comment tool be single or double click before you start typing?

Rather than Alteryx making those decisions, why not let the Community decide! A new polls section would allow the users to ultimately determine the look and feel of certain things in the Designer and make other contributions to the future of Alteryx.

 

If this is done, please make it a separate section (not a subset under discussions) so the purpose and impact are clear.

@DultonM -- Thank you for the feedback and great suggestion! This is absolutely something we will explore in the near future. I know we have some out-of-the-box polling capabilities, that are more similar to targeted mini surveys, that we can place throughout the community. I'd be curious to hear more about what you (& other users) think this should look like from a user experience perspective.

 

I've updated the status to Under Review, and will be sure to post any updates on our end to this thread.

Community wise decision making or decision support is a very democratic idea indeed. This is how Bee swarms survive indeed...

Hi @DultonM , 

 

This feature is now available. Currently it only allows for text fields and there are other limitations to the polling features, but it's a great way to capture quick feedback. Be on the lookout for improvements to this feature in the future as well!
