As someone on the hunt for badges, I am doing my best to offer solutions as I know many of you are. Nothing breaks my heart more than delivering a solution and not getting that "Marked as Solution" tag.
Looking down the list of Discussions in Designer / Server etc. there are countless solutions that aren't marked as such. Perhaps it would be helpful to automate a follow up email to the Discussion starter a few days after the final post just reminding them to Mark a Solution if their question has been solved.
PS/ not sure where I should've put this Idea because it doesn't relate to an Alteryx product. There didn't seem to be a category for Community Ideas as far as I could see.
This idea isn't my own. If I remembered correctly, it was mentioned by @MarqueeCrew. I hope he will not have anything against me posting it here 😀
In short, we don't have functionality in the community that would allow us to follow specific users. I think we have a couple of stars in the community that share quality content, and it would be amazing to receive a notification if they started a new topic or post a new article.
To my best knowledge, functionality like this should be relatively easy to implement, and it would allow us to learn best practices from those stars that we are following.
I think it would be great to have Grand Prix style event once a quarter for the weekly challenges. This can be broken down by expertise level. I see this increasing the engagement on the community and further spread the word on weekly challenges. Also, not everyone makes it on stage for Grand Prix, this event could be their opportunity to experience Grand Prix
If people who are registered for AFG could volunteer by solving problems as a part of Weekly Challenges it'd really bridge the gap between volunteering for Non-profits. The help needed by NGO's with Alteryx could be broken down in problem statements and can be worked on.
Firstly, thank you for the care that you put into nurturing and tending this community!
Looking at the badges - it seems that it may be useful to discriminate between posts made in the Ideas sections; vs. posts made in the discussion or the Weekly Challenge section.
My thinking here is that some folk will be able to make a huge contribution in new product or community ideas - while others may be assisting the community with solutions; suggestions; replies etc. Both are valuable and both are very different ways to contribute.
🙂 additionally - like you've done with the weekly challenges - we could make this fun (e.g. use light-bulb or invention-themed badge icons for folks who are prolific idea generators).
This is similar to some other requests I've posted in the past relating to badges.
When I look at my profile ( https://community.alteryx.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/4671) I see a series of badges sorted by earned date - so the most recently earned badges are at the top. This is a helpful listing, but as new badges are earned, some really cool ones float off the page. For example, my Core Certification badge moved off recently, and the Advanced Certified is on its way off the page!
I'm wondering if a second row could be added of "favorites", with an option for users to "favorite" some badges that they really like. These may be things like the certifications which speak to a user's qualifications/experience, or something like the "Stars Champion" badge, which only one user has. I think allowing a curated list like this could add a lot of value to user profiles, and add a sense of customization/personalization, increasing engagement.
The weekly challenges provide such a rich resource for strengthening your Alteryx abilities but for new uses a lot of time is spent merely collecting the older challenges to work on them. I would suggest creating a page with all of the start files, and a page with all of the solution files so that all of the challenges can be downloaded from a single location. This would also provide an opportunity for a new weekly challenge to build a workflow that downloads challenges within a specified range, create windows folders for each week, and cleanse the pesky underscores from the front and end of many of the files.
