Treasure Chest.gif


This post has a treasure chest full of great suggestions.  It would be a good place to hide an Easter Egg!  Many folks look forward to Monday's so that they can attempt the weekly challenge when it is fresh off of the presses.  While some users only come to the Community when they have a question to be answered, I like to see what I can learn on a daily basis.  I've been using Alteryx for 13 years and find new things on a regular basis.  It is interesting to read and to listen to users around the world interact here in the community.  New User questions are very important to the community.  It is the first step towards engagement and it helps those less brave when they find comfort from seeing a question answered before they ask it.  Your question will likely help many that follow you.  One last tip that I might add to your welcome is to share the Love and give away LIKES.  






If you are looking for an Easter Egg spoiler here, while I congratulate your investigation skills I believe that you haven't listened thoroughly yet.

HI guys,

Great to be here!

I appeared for the alteryx core certification exam and unfortunately did not clear it.On receiving performance report I ended up scoring low in Input , Output and practical application sections, rest all were par score.

It would be a great help if any one can suggest resources for the above mentioned topics.




Hello @Pratik_61294


Everything within the Core exam can be found between the tool examples within Alteryx, as well as the Help Doc pages.
If Input has been an area of improvement, I would also recommend checking out the Tool Mastery here on the Community.


Dont be discouraged! Its not uncommon to not pass the first attempt exam, It took me 3 attempts to finally pass (CrossTab and Transpose are still foreign to me)


I hope this helps!
