improve the Community Experience

What can we do to make your Alteryx Community experience better? Let us know!

Community People Finder

I am meeting a lot of awesome people at #Inspire17!! ...but when I went to try and find some of them on the Community, I realize there is no easy way to do this. How cool would it be for there to be a User or People section on the Community where you could find people by querying their public stats (or even private stats if the user checks something saying to make those stats public)?! This feature could help tremendously with networking! Here's some situations where something like this would help:


"I remember this guy worked for x-company, if only I could see their name, I would know who it is"

"I want to connect with other Alteryx users near me"

"I want to reach out to this presenter from Inspire17, but I forgot what their Community Username was"



It would be nice if it connected to LinkedIn, then it would make it easier to keep company, location and contact information up to date.

Hi @DultonM, I'm so glad to hear you made good connections at Inspire, it certainly was great to finally meet you in person!


You currently have the ability of searching users by changing the filter option on the search, and we are working on improving search performance to better support this. What gets returned may vary depending on how users have chosen to set their own privacy settings. Users need to set "Show private information in profile" to All to allow others to search them by company, for example, or to allow you to see their stats.  However if they have chosen to not share anything, we will respect their privacy. 


To connect with other Alteryx users near you, we strongly recommend checking out local User Groups.


As for Inspire speakers, we're working on improving that next year so community usernames get added to badges, speaker info, etc. 



I hope this helps! Let us know what else we could be doing to facilitate connecting you with others via the community.


I connect with other users mostly through Twitter and LinkedIn, but I do like the idea of adding community usernames to badges and other items.


hi @JulieH


I did check out local User Groups, but the nearest is a 3 hour flight. Is there a way to find if there are users who are near me so we may start a User Group?


Hi @SteveM,


I may not be able to help you with finding users close to you, but the Orlando User Group does do some virtual User Group meetings if you are interested in attending.  .

Thanks for sharing @AndrewDataKim!  It's awesome to see Orlando users spreading the love across state lines ;-)


@SteveM -- If you are interested in exploring starting a user group closer to where you live and work, you are more than welcome to get in touch with our User Group team. I included a link to the inquiry form below. Go ahead and fill out the required information, and the Alteryx Customer Experience Team will be in touch with you to discuss!
