My Name is Erika Rigal and I work in the Automotive Aftermarket industry.


I have been using Alteryx for about 3 1/2 years, in conjunction with heavy use of Tableau and some less frequent use of Microsoft Excel (now that I have great tools like Alteryx & Tableau to work with! 🙂 ).


Our organization also utilizes Alteryx Server and we have deployed a few Alteryx Apps to non-Alteryx users through the Company Gallery we have with our Server license.  It has helped tremendously with freeing up our time for more intense analyses within the organization.


My favorite hobby is calligraphy.  I have always been fascinated by handwriting and the art it can entail.  The Alteryx Tool that best describes me is join tool!  I like to bring commanilities together to see what else they can bring to light - whether it be better communication, more robust information about a topic, or even in expanding a circle of friends.


I look forward to meeting everyone in our area at the User Group meeting on September 8th!

Hi,  I am new to South Florida/Fort Lauderdale and was looking for an Alteryx users group to get involved with.  Is this group still holding meetings, etc.?


Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Hi @JHalfon, we had some recent changes in the leadership structure but are still happy to try to plan meetings. Super high level question, would you be interested in helping to coordinate those meetings? Coordinating meetings is very easy, I work with you to determine the time, date, and location. I'll work with the leaders to announce those meetings to the rest of the group.

Hi Lauren,  Thanks for the fast response.  Sure, I'd be ok with helping out to set up, and possibly host, some meetings in Fort Lauderdale.  -Jeff
