Key Announcements


  1. Alteryx For Good Week is April 15-22 - We will be recruiting volunteers to give their time to assist a local non-profit. This is a fantastic opportunity to give back to our community!  Look for an update on this forum.
  2. Alteryx Advanced Certification is now available – Take advantage of these certifications! They are free!!!

Ken Albert from our leadership team gave an AWESOME presentation on how to deal with data that resides in multiple (1000s of) Excel sheets.  This is especially challenging when some of the files are in .xls vs .xlsx format and when users did not use the same column headers each time.  Great work Ken!

Darren Walton and Shai from DVW solutions gave a very informative presentation on data connectors and other embedded features that allow users to connect Alteryx to SAP.  Information on this product can be obtained at the link below:

Thank you to everyone who stayed after to work on a solution that greatly benefitted one of our members!  It is this kind of collaboration that we would like to continue to foster within our group!
