  • Alteryx Beta Program FAQs
    • I have an Alteryx Community login, is that the same as my Alteryx beta program login?
      • No- while SSO is a goal, at this time Alteryx Community login and Alteryx Beta program login accounts are completely separate.
    • I want to beta test Designer, how do I install it alongside my production version on my desktop?
    • I applied X days ago, when will I be approved?
      • Alteryx beta is for Customers and Partners in good standing.  To validate account status, we check SFDC for account status.  So, if you are using a non corporate email address, we’ll likely not think you’re a customer.  Please use corporate email address when you sign up.
      • Sales Approval - If account is in good standing, beta program asks Sales to ‘opt-in’ and confirm beta participant account is allowed to participate in the beta program.  Check with your sales rep as they will receive an email asking them for approval within 24 hours of receipt.
      • Beta Account enabled - Once Customer account is validated in SFDC and Sales approves, the beta program will enable your account at which point you will receive email from betas@alteryx.com indicating that they are approved for the beta with a link to sign in and begin testing.  Check your email junk folder for this email.
    • I’m having Trouble Licensing Designer Beta
      • Verify that you meet the license requirements.
      • If you are having trouble activating the license key for Designer, please try the offline license activation method as described in the help docs ‘Activate a license offline (file activation)’ section. Note please send the .req file to fulfillment@alteryx.com to upload the file into the UAT portal.
    • Server.Next Beta Instance shows an ‘empty’ page when I click the ‘Platform login link’.
      • Use Incognito Mode
      • Disable common ad/script blockers like ‘uBlockOrigin’ and others for Server.Next beta site.
    • I'm a Partner or Customer and want to Demo Beta content at a customer site, user group or webinar.  Can I demo Alteryx Beta software?
      • No per license agreement, beta is only for internal testing and evaluation. - Specifically, in section 1.1 of the beta agreement, this limitation is expanded upon:
