5. Ask Questions - We know a lot of people come to the Community to browse and find answers without posting, but did you know that the Alteryx Community is one of the fastest responding Communities? If you post with all the appropriate Alteryx information needed, you will get a response! Our Community loves to help each other. Once you post, pass it forward by answering questions yourself.

 

6. Post Questions in the correct board - Our end to end platform makes analytics easy, but we've broken the platform up so that it makes it easier to organize the content. Make sure you are posting in the correct discussions boards. Each area of the platform has its own area. If you have a questions about our Designer product, then post in the Designer Discussions. If you have a question about the Alteryx Connect product, then post in the Connect Discussions, etc.

7. Provide Ample Information - Our Community of Alteryx Experts needs as much information as possible to help you as quickly as possible. Remember to add your workflow with sample data, so the Community can test. Remember, the more information you provide and the clearer you are as to what you want to accomplish will get you a faster answer. Community members use Alteryx for many reasons, but many won't know your industry or use case, but they know the tools. Example:
