In the 2023.1 release - the Alteryx Designer team have delivered one of the most requested features ever - and this brings a huge amount of power to the designer allowing developers to do things that they have never been able to do before!
- there could be one video showing off an example that is very tough without dependancy control (e.g. writing to the same excel sheet; or sending an eMail only after the data has been updated; or loading a customer table and only then loading up the customer transactions)
- there's another video showing off the logging aspects
- another showing how the conditional execution simplifies all of your canvasses - e.g. if there are no rows, you can prevent an entire area from running, so you don't have to manage the zero rows issues that you did previously
If you do these videos like other software companies do - showing just how much time and effort it saves in these scenarios (i.e. a before and after) then people will really understand just how big a deal this is.
It is nice how typing the @ symbol brings up a list of users already on a post that you're replying to. This makes tagging people quick and easy.
Sometimes the list of users that have replied to a post is greater than the subset sample shown in this dropdown, however. In this case, you can start typing and the results do update, but it seems to return the best match from the Community at large. If I want to tag someone from this particular post I'm replying to, I often have to type out nearly the whole name before it is able to narrow down the search results to the user I want. I would love to be able to start typing just the first two characters of a username and have the list update while prioritizing the users relevant to the post.
Just typing @:
After typing pa:
How many letters I had to type out before finally getting the result for the user who actually made the post I'm replying to:
Let me start by saying that badges are awesome, and I love being able to see what I've earned and how that compares to others in the Community.
I think it would be fantastic to be able to search for users who have earned a given badge. Today, you can really only find out if someone has a badge by actively searching for their profile and checking every badge they have. This can be particularly challenging if I'm interested in seeing, for example, the user accounts of every Alteryx ACE in 2017, or who has earned the Genius badge.
This can also be really helpful if I'm looking for users with a certain level of certification. I can see by poking around that a few users I know have achieved Alteryx Advanced Certification, but I'd really like to be able to see all 30 people who have the badge as of today.
Overall, I think this would be a really powerful feature that would help improve the Community experience.
Is there any way to add filter/sort functionality on the events page when they are shown as a list? It looks like the default is to show events in chronological order, but maybe someone wants to see only events in Kansas or only events that are user group meetings.
On several of the challenges, we are limited from attaching exported solutions (it only allows workflow files). Additionally - it would be helpful to be able to attach flows & data files to PMs and to replies on ideas to avoid having to use drop-box etc.
could we change the settings on these discussion threads and on the PM area to allow this?
So - one of the common things that I do almost every few days - is to pass on an article on the community to someone who I work with.
Right now - the only way to do this is to share it using the share button (which then goes via e-mail or twitter etc) or otherwise create a personal message, or even worse you can do a reply with "plus person XXX" but this just creates noise on the thread
Could we add 3 features to the community to make this MUCH quicker:
- Share with community user/group of users
- Allow me to create my own group of users like "Admin team" or "Designer users" or "my direct team" which I can forward the message to
- create a notification in the notification section for shared articles
It would be great if we could have a feature in the community where I can recommend an article to a friend or colleague from within the site.
If we wanted to make this really fun, you could even reward people who bring new folk into the community - you get credit for every new joiner, only after they graduate beyond a certain user level (e.g. Atom or Meteor), and the credit belongs to the first person who sent them a recommendation?
We already have one of the best communities out there, the question is how do we get better at telling more people about it!
I've seen a few posts in the past couple days, mostly from new Community users, who are finding old posts from 2015 and 2016 and replying to them with "tweaked" versions of the problems solved in these posts. This is tough for a few reasons:
1) The people on that thread may not frequent the community today, so the question might not get visibility
2) The new poster can't mark any suggestions as a solution
3) This causes notifications to active users from old threads, which may not be appropriate if their issue was already solved.
I think if there was a date after which threads were locked that would help. To enable ease of use for new users, I think adding a new button "Create Related Thread" to these posts would help new users to post their question quickly.
Clicking this button might inherit the Tags that the old question had, and write the header for the user, and maybe include a link to the old thread for context?
I think this would help a lot with the experience of new users on the Community, and would also give more visibility to these kinds of "modified" requests.
Can we have the ability to search or organize our bookmarks? With so much great content, it's hard to keep similar bookmarks together. Some communities allow you to save articles under different collections, but at the very least, I think it would be useful to search through things you have already bookmarked (eg."Now, where did I read that?).
I noticed my community content is available for download at the bottom of my personal information page but, after exploring the file a bit, I couldn´t find anything related to when my posts have been published.
Would it be possible to include each record´s timestamp? I believe this info is useful to conduct an user activity analysis.
While taking the certification exam, as well as when doing quizzes after tutorials, I have noticed that I cannot see that the radio button is selected. I am color blind, so I am not sure if this is due to the color used or if the button indicator isn't dark enough.
If someone could please address this, it would help out a lot!
