Hey Philly!

Atom

Hi everyone!

My name is Melissa, I'm a data engineer for W.L. Gore & Associates in Maryland. I am fairly new to Alteryx, as is W.L. Gore. I'd love to join in on a Philly User Group meeting to make some connections, gain a few resources, and get in some practice with other more experienced users at my side. Are there any plans for the next one? If so, where can I find those plans for reference? 

 

Thanks!

 

Hope to see you soon,

Melissa

Hi Melissa - welcome to the group!


We're currently planning for the next User Group meeting, likely to be held in the next couple of weeks.  We have a venue already but are settling on the content at this point.  Would you be interested in sharing some of the work you're doing?  It could be anywhere from 10-30 minutes.  Let me know!

Edit:

 

Since you're new to Alteryx, you may not have a use case to share, are there any specific topics you'd be interested in learning about?  This will help us to tailor our content.  Thanks!

Hi!

For me Fuzzy Matching and its various forms/processes would be huge.

Thanks!

Sounds great! Count me in! I'd be happy to talk about what I'm doing with Alteryx! 

Most of my use cases so far have been fairly simple. However, I do have small project that I could put in front of the group and could use some help on. I have data that comes to me in the form of manually filled out excel workbooks, which I can create a dummy version that doesn't have any IP associated with it. The structure mimics what used to be a handwritten form and I need to restructure it so that it is represented in a structured format. There are multiple sheets within each workbook, but a lot of fields are duplicated. Therefore, one workbook would equal one row in the traditional spreadsheet structure. Once the structure is worked out, I'll need it to walk through a directory and add each workbook as one record to the new structure.
