Beta Program - Action Required
What? Improvements to our licensing technology require that beta program participant re-license the beta software using the same keys available on the left hand side of the Centercode interface under the 'Beta License Keys' link.
Who? All Alteryx beta program participants who want to continue testing the currently available and future pre-release builds.
When? This licensing system update was implemented on Monday, July 30, 2018. Until you 're-license' by re-installing and re-licensing you wont be able to use beta software. Why? This licensing update will help us set the stage for our 2018.4 Beta Program (and others in the future). It includes enhancements and bug fixes to make licensing Alteryx fast and easy. How?
Re-license your beta license keys using the steps below
1) Upon Launch of your Designer using Beta license key, you'll be prompted for your license keys
figure 1 - Initial Launch - Not Licensed Anymore
2) Log into Alteryx Beta program (beta.alteryx.com) and select copy the 'Alteryx Designer' beta license key:

3) Paste the Beta license Key into the 'License keys' field and click Activate button. Provide additional detail as requested and click Activate button

4) Success! You can now use Alteryx Beta again.

During testing of Alteryx's new beta program it was discovered that for some users a timing related unexpected behavior could occur during onboarding. The end result is that until the current browser session is ended or internet cache is cleared, users will see an unresponsive screen with this error message: 'The page you are attempting to access is unavailable'.
This behavior is not expected to affect many users, but on the offhand chance you experience it, the known workflow to reproduce and corresponding workaround are described below.

NOTE: If you haven’t left your browser session, You’ll see this error message, I’m assured by Centercode that this is normal and usually wont impact users. The issue is that new permissions/roles/teams are assigned upon login to Centercode. Since you haven’t left your session, you need to establish a new connection. You can either 1 of 2 completely close and relaunch your web browser, or 2 of 2 clear your internet cache/cookies in Chrome (Ctrl+Shift+Delete) to continue. Details for 2 are in figure 8 below :

NOTE: To Clear Browser history in Chrome I just chose these options:
Figure 8 – Clear your cache (last 24 hours should be fine)
