I love the (somewhat) new look of the community. It's much more helpful to find what you're looking for through search and the menu buttons on the left. One small enhancement I would request is a better fitting of the menu icons along the left side of the page. It might be my smaller screen size (Lenova Yoga 920) but not all of the menu items fit to my screen. So I have to use the mouse wheel to scroll to see all of the buttons (the Alteryx Resources button!). And the situation gets worse when you hover over the menu to scroll as it adds a box displaying the URL of the page (see screenshot below), which further hides the Alteryx Resources menu item (I actually didn't even realize it existed for a few months). Also, once I do scroll to the bottom to see the Alteryx Resources menu, the submenu suffers from the same cutoff problem as well (second screenshot attached).
If this is an easy fix, it would be much appreciated!

I love the Weekly Challenges. Unfortunately, my corporate security has deemed them insecure. I cannot any longer download the starter or the challenges. Could we also have the starter in a word or text description so that we can recreate it on my side. I can still download documents... I think!

Alteryx Team, When someone attempts for certification exams, results should be sent to registered email ID immediately after completion of exam. Currently the PDF's are not sent automatically and candidate needs to follow up for the same. In case of Pass - A PDF copy of certificate can be sent. In case of failed - Along with the result, areas of improvements can be shared where the candidate need to put more effort when appearing for next time. How many attempts are remaining for current month? This feature will be a useful feature for the candidates appearing for certifications.
Our team loves the weekly exercises and value the lessons learned-- or should I say earned-- from them each week. However, finding them is a little, well, weird especially when I am trying to explain how to find them to colleagues: "Well, so, you go to search, type weekly and then select results from the last week and then each of the previous weeks exercises will be held in that most recent workbook. " What I would love to see is these in their own space within the community so one would not have to search for them each week. Bonus points if we were able to DL all workbooks as a single zip that we could have for new-hire training material!
Every time I search to see if someone has already made a suggestion for our community, the search returns results from everywhere, and I have to start ticking checkboxes to limit the search. But, even when I do that there's no specific area on the search page for community ideas.
To minimize duplicate suggestions, it could be great if we could more easily search for ideas previously submitted.
It would be great if there were a way to see the all the product ideas I've starred. Right now, if I want to review those ideas I'm going to need to scroll through all of them looking for gold stars. Perhaps some kind of activity log in the user profile could provide us with this information?
I was speaking to a new customer this week and they really like the Community but they wondered if it would be possible to include an area in the Discussion Section for topics that are more centric to areas of interest and industry specific questions. The example I was given was around survey data.
The customer mentioned that the Tableau Forum has something similar and that they felt this was missing from ours.
I'm not aware that this area already exists in the Community but it seems a good idea to me as all the sections at the moment are very product centric.
I was posting a question today about sorting, but didn't see a label for sort, sorting, or a question label. Not sure what the qualifications are for making the label list, but I suggest that "Question" and "Sort" be added.
there should be an option to display a newsfeed that can be customized by the user. Notifications could be color-coded to correspond with its "parent" category (e.g., Discussions, Knowledge, Ideas, Blogs, etc.). The feed should be as flexible/customizable as possible (e.g., mute discussion, reply flag, pinning, etc.). It'd also be great if users had the ability to drag-n-drop items they want added to their feed.
