Intro to Accepted Solutions & Likes

Welcome to the Alteryx Community! We are so glad to have you with us. Some of the most popular discussion styles of the Community are the Discussion forums and the knowledge base. These forums have two methods for acknowledging helpful or awesome content; Solutions and Likes.

 

 

Solutions

 

In the Discussion Forums, you can post questions you have on a wide variety of topics: Alteryx products, analytics, data science, data preparation and blending, how to's, and the meaning of life. The Community is very active, and it is not uncommon to get a response or even an answer to your question in a matter of hours (for help posting a really great question, please read Posting for the Fastest Possible Solution). Once you do get an answer to your question, you have the ability to accept that post as a Solution.

You will only be able to make a solution for questions that you have posted (i.e., you started the thread). You can mark more than one response to your thread as a solution. Community moderators can also mark replies as Solutions, but we try not to unless it is obvious a reply resolved your question.

Likes

 

Another feature of most posts and articles on the Community is Likes. Likes are a content rating system that allows you to mark the messages you think are most important, insightful, and useful. To give a like to a post, all you need to do is click the little like icon in the bottom right corner of a post.

When you've liked a post, the little liked icon in the bottom right corner will be filled in blue.
