Treasure Chest.gif


This post has a treasure chest full of great suggestions.  It would be a good place to hide an Easter Egg!  Many folks look forward to Monday's so that they can attempt the weekly challenge when it is fresh off of the presses.  While some users only come to the Community when they have a question to be answered, I like to see what I can learn on a daily basis.  I've been using Alteryx for 13 years and find new things on a regular basis.  It is interesting to read and to listen to users around the world interact here in the community.  New User questions are very important to the community.  It is the first step towards engagement and it helps those less brave when they find comfort from seeing a question answered before they ask it.  Your question will likely help many that follow you.  One last tip that I might add to your welcome is to share the Love and give away STARS.  






If you are looking for an Easter Egg spoiler here, while I congratulate your investigation skills I believe that you haven't listened thoroughly yet.
