Welcome To our Community The Alteryx Community was created to provide a place for members or participants to search for information, read and post about topics of interest, and learn from each other. Depending on how the community is set up, you'll find : boards where you can post questions and answers BLOGS where you can read and comment on articles idea exchanges where you can suggest ways to improve products and vote for ideas that other community members have posted and more... Guests (unregistered visitors) can browse or search the community for information. Members (registered users) can post messages or comments, track discussions, and get email notifications on posting activity and other community actions.       What is my role and responsibility in the community? You are essential to the community, even if all you ever do is read messages or articles that someone else has posted. Communities offer all kinds of contributions: posting questions and sharing answers, leaving comments on blog articles or ideas, voting for ideas you like, or just searching for answers to your questions. We encourage you to visit often and participate. Ask your toughest questions. Chances are someone has a solution or can point you in the right direction. If you find a solution that works, let others know and pass on your own tips and insights. You might just have the answer someone else needs. Remember to thank community members who have helped you. Show your appreciation by giving likes to helpful posts, accepting a solution that answers your question, or posting thank-you replies. We want the community to be appropriate, friendly, informative, and fun for everyone. Be sure to read the Community Terms of Service , Associates-Rules-of-Engagement and the community's Guidelines so that you know what to expect and what is expected of you when you're here.

It is a way for you to get the latest content from this community, along with many other sites that you visit, all in one place. With an RSS feed reader, you subscribe to web sites, and those sites feed you new content so you can stay up to date. To use RSS, you need a feed reader, such as Google Reader, MyYahoo, or the Live Bookmarks feature of Firefox. There are many free options. After you have your feed reader set up, you can find RSS feeds in the community by going to a board, blog, thread, or message and selecting  Subscribe to RSS Feed  from the options menu. There you will see a preview of the feed. Most RSS readers give you a button to click at this point. After you click it, the RSS feed appears in your reader as well as new content from that section of the community whenever it becomes available.   Notification Settings From here you can customize what kind of notifications you receive from the Community. You can use these settings to pick and choose what you are notified about, and the frequency of those notifications.
