The community team is kicking off the summer season with a chance to bring your questions straight to the man at the top, Dean Stoecker! This is an exciting opportunity to have your questions be heard by the captain of the ship, and I'm very excited to share the details with you.
On July 15th, we'll be hosting a live Q&A session with Dean for the community. The focus of this session is altering your mindset and the future role that analytics will play on the global stage (think in the workplace, in solving complex social and environmental issues, global politics and relations, etc).
Anyone is welcome to attend, but there's a kicker: the questions will be both sourced and prioritized directly by you, our community members! Here's how it's going to work. This thread is open from now until the event, and will act as a collector, so post your questions for Dean here. Try to keep questions in line with the theme we'll be using, and try not to get too in the weeds. We want this session to be enjoyable for everyone, from those just starting their analytics journey to seasoned data scientists.
We also need your help selecting the questions that are going to be included in the live event (which means that periodically checking in on this thread is a great idea). We want you all to vote with your likes on the best questions. Since we'll only have an hour, we won't be able to address every question live, but we'll use the most-liked questions to help prioritize which questions Dean addresses during the session. If your question isn't chosen, however, don't fret! We'll still be following up after the live event with a blog that will go through the remaining questions from the community and make sure everyone gets answers.
I hope that you're all as excited about this as I am. Not every CEO appreciates community members like Dean does, and this is a great opportunity to make your voices heard! If you have any questions about the format or process, feel free to ask them in the thread below as well. Now start thinking about what you'd like to learn, and ask away!
Registration for the live session is now open and can be accessed HERE. Register today and we'll see you at the event in a few short weeks!

Are there rules to the questions about the future role of analytics on the global stage? If your'e counting likes, I might need to post each idea separately. I'll leave room for others and consolidate this round of questions here.
Folks don't know how Alteryx has a part to play in the following challenges: the opioid crisis, veteran suicides, Middle-East peace, Equality and Covid-19. How does AlteryxForGood mobilize the internal and community resources to lend a hand? How can community members make themselves available to help?
What have you recently read or recommend for reading that helps to frame your vision of the future?
Forget complex, how do we as data analysts an scientists overcome inertia and start contributing?
Is there any music that you'd recommend that we have on our playlists that could inspire us to act?
How do you overcome a "no" response?
How do you consume the Alteryx Community?
Besides me, who in the Alteryx Community inspires you?
Okay, that's a start. Let's put this to the Alteryx Community and see what other questions we can ask.

Chaos reigns within. Repent, reflect and reboot. Order shall return.
Thanks for giving us an opportunity to ask questions.
With Data Analytics on the business and technology roadmap for the foreseeable future, what practices are being put in place today to assure that as we begin to use this current curated data tomorrow or in 5 years, it will be reliable, it will have integrity and that we can actually trust it?
As to the future of analytics on the global stage: Access for small business.
Currently there is talk of discontinuing Desktop Automation. The only way to schedule workflows would then be: to upgrade to Alteryx server which would be pricing most if not all smaller businesses out of the market for alteryx.
What is the official position on discontinuing this product functionality?
