Idea Submission Guidelines

Alteryx Community Team
Alteryx Community Team
Thank you for checking out the Idea Boards for Designer, Server, Connect and Promote! We appreciate your ideas on how we can best enhance each of our products. However before submitting an idea please be sure to review our submission guidelines.


Posting to the Idea Board:


Which Board To Post In: We have four unique idea boards for our four primary products. Due to this, posting to the correct board is key for making sure your idea gets the support needed from the Community. The Designer board is meant for our base product and can include enhancements to workflow behavior, tools and data connections. Server Ideas is built to provide a separate location for ideas pertaining to but not limited to the Alteryx Gallery, scheduling and Server behavior. Our Connect and Promote boards are for the enterprise products Alteryx Connect and Alteryx Promote and are meant for ideas pertaining to their functionalities.

Posting Your Idea: Before submitting an idea you’ll be required to search your title against all the current posts, this is to make sure no duplicate ideas are posted. Duplicate ideas can split support for an idea, which can cause our Product Team to be unable to appropriately evaluate the interest in an idea or miss it entirely.

Should you find your idea has already been posted to the board be sure to like the idea and provide constructive commentary! This helps our Product Team gauge interest.

What to Include In Your Idea:

Use Cases: Be sure to provide a use case, or rational on why this idea would be helpful. The more we understand the context of the idea the more accurate and clear we will be able to be with technical capabilities, prioritizing and timelines.

Demos or Visuals: If possible demoing your idea in Alteryx or providing mock screenshots is greatly appreciated. This helps the idea gain more attention from the Community and helps our product team better understand your idea overall!


Engaging with the Product Idea Board:

Explore Other’s Ideas: Once you’ve posted your idea be sure to check out other’s ideas. If you find a idea you like be sure to like and provide any constructive commentary you might have.

Likes Are Key: Be sure to like any ideas you would like to see implemented in the product. The more likes the quicker the idea will catch our attention, we also require at least 10 likes for the idea to be brought to our product teams.

Status Definitions and Process:


Every idea has merit and we strive to implement as many as we can that would have the greatest customer value and viability while still fitting into the strategic mission for Alteryx. Ideas will move through a set life cycle that we’ve described below.

New Idea - All good ideas have to start somewhere! This is the default status for a new idea, these ideas likely are new or have not yet reached the necessary amount of likes and have not been reviewed by our product team.

Comments Requested - We love your idea! But we need a bit more information. Our product team needs more information on what you exactly have in mind or if it would be beneficial in the opinion of the masses. Ideas left in this status for longer then a year will be marked as retired due to lack of Community interest or additional information.

Under Review - These ideas has gotten the necessary number of likes for it to be up for review by our product team. We'll get back to you once we have a response from the development team on if and when we could implement your idea.

Accepted - Congrats your idea has been cleared and approved by the product team as something we can implement! Our product team is working away at getting your idea integrated and we will let you know when it's close to done.

Ongoing - Our development team loved this idea, but to properly implement it they are going to need a few releases. Ideas in this status mean we were able to implement part of the idea but not all of it is implemented just yet.

Coming Soon - Almost done! These ideas should be completely ready and implemented in a upcoming release.

Implemented - Nice work! These ideas are now fully deployed in the product. Let us know what you think in the product’s Discussion Board.

Not Planned - Unfortunately we can't implement every good idea that comes our way due to technical restrictions or the product moving in a different direction. We appreciate these users for submitting their ideas and contributing the the Community as a whole.

Revisit - We love this idea, but there is no time or room in the near future to implement it to the best of our ability. But our product team would like to keep it on the radar and will revisit it when they can better speak on the timeline for this idea!

Partner Dependent - We would love to implement these ideas but are currently stuck due to the idea depending on a third party partner. We'll keep going once the block is cleared with the partner!

Inactive - We appreciate all contributions to the idea boards. Unfortunately, some ideas do not get the support or clarification needed for our Product Team to effectively evaluated the idea. Ideas that are unable to get ten likes and have not had any activity on their post within a year, including likes and comments, will enter this status. However, ideas placed in this status can be returned to the New Idea status with enough renewed activity.
