Option for Communication on Patch Releases for Designer & Server

So our company is relatively new to Alteryx Designer and Server and we recently found out that there's no official communication sent out from Alteryx on when there are patch releases for Designer and Server. We've encountered so many bugs that we later found on the release notes that would've been helpful to know about months before.

 

So my suggestion is to have an option for Administrators to opt in/out for communication emails on when the patches are released.

 

Thank you!

Ditto! Having these notifications is critical.

Same here. We've been using Alteryx Designer and recently set up Alteryx Servers. It's imperative that we get notified whenever a patch or new version is released/to be released so we can proper test and roll out in our environment. How is everyone else staying informed in the interim?

In addition to patches for the product itself, there are also updates happening for some of the tools. For example, the Google Drive Output tool. It would be extremely useful to be notified about those updates!
