I see I can go month by month but takes quite a bit of time. The weekly challenge index is very helpful and useful
I have had a number of times where I've responded to forum posts only to discover upon posting that someone else has posted an (often better) answer ahead of me, and my answer is now redundant.
It would be nice to have a notification before posting that the thread has changed.
Let me start by saying that badges are awesome, and I love being able to see what I've earned and how that compares to others in the Community.
I think it would be fantastic to be able to search for users who have earned a given badge. Today, you can really only find out if someone has a badge by actively searching for their profile and checking every badge they have. This can be particularly challenging if I'm interested in seeing, for example, the user accounts of every Alteryx ACE in 2017, or who has earned the Genius badge.
This can also be really helpful if I'm looking for users with a certain level of certification. I can see by poking around that a few users I know have achieved Alteryx Advanced Certification, but I'd really like to be able to see all 30 people who have the badge as of today.
Overall, I think this would be a really powerful feature that would help improve the Community experience.
Not going to bore you with my use case (but if you really want to know, send me a private message), but I think it would be an added bonus to specify which email address you want to use for community subscriptions, even if it's not the email tied to your community profile.
Sometimes, Ideas are posted by users that have solutions or workarounds that meet the user's need. When others in the Community respond with these suggestions, the ideas usually end up in a status of "Not Planned".
I think it would be really helpful to be able to mark these as "solved". An example of this is the following post:
Here, the user posted a suggestion, and I as well as @mcarrico were able to provide suggestions that met this need. I think marking this post as Solved could help other users who have the same thought in the future.
I also think that this might be an opportunity for an additional tag for Community ideas, either "workaround available" or "already implemented". "Not Planned" doesn't necessarily read as well as it could in cases where a solution exists.
Maybe this is just a "temporary" badge, but I had the thought that as we register for Inspire18, that we could earn a registration badge. You could see who's coming to inspire and communicate beforehand. Similarly, if I see a post from someone that isn't registered I could suggest a session for them.
Post authors can mark zero, one or many solutions as answers to a post. I'd like to see more solution alternatives posted in Community. There are always many ways to solve a given challenge. While giving stars is an option available to all, perhaps once a certain "level" is achieved you can also mark replies as accepted solutions.
Thanks for your consideration,
How about a filter that would reveal all ZERO reponse items in the Discussion forums? This would reveal old questions that never found a response.
When I've attempted to register for exams, my @gmail.com address is not recognized as valid. It wants a "business" email. But I think that it should definitely accept the email address associated with your community profile and probably just accept anything a user wants, considering that it already also asks for your community profile user ID.
My understanding is that the community email part is already under consideration. Just tossing out an expansion on that idea.
I am taking a new position with a different company and therefore will have a new email. I would like to have the access to all of the posts and knowledge accociated with my current postition's e-mail. However, at this point, the only way to associate with a new e-mail is to create a new community account. This means I will lose all the inertia associated with my old account-- what a bummer!
It would be really great if we could organize our Community friends into groups (ex. local users, personal friends, coworkers) and be able to send private messages to the group instead of one for each individual.
The Alteryx community serves many people across many continents. When a user posts a comment or wants to read a post, there should be an option to "Translate" the post to their preferred language.
To really power the cleanup - what would be tremendously helpful is data on unsolved problems.
I think that this could take 2 forms:
a) a table format (like @JoeM does for the weekly exercises) - this would be fairly trivial to auto-generate this from the underlying data rather than hand-crafting - and can include links directly to the unsolved item
b) a grouped data structure, where we could see a few things:
- Unsolved items by requestor (that allows us to group and target the biggest populations first)
- some indicator of whether this requestor is still active in logging into the community (no point in chasing someone that hasn't logged in since 2013)
- Links directly to the thread item
- Last post date on the thread (no point in chasing someone to mark this as solved if it just happened 2 days ago)
That would enable us to go through the full population and more effectively work on getting the remaining items marked as solved or closed - and it would also allow us to track our progress as a metric of success day-by-day!
:-) I feel a data-driven-cleanup-project coming on - with as-of snapshots; trend graphs etc. Very exciting stuff!
I needed to mention Alteryx Support team,
in order to inform them about an issue I came across...
But couldn't find any users called
we need to mention them in our community post I belive to make sure the issues clients and potential cliens hwho are trying the demo are answered on time etc...
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"
Could the online status for a user be put next to their name everywhere in the community and not just in the 'My friends' section of our profiles? It would really help knowing for when I want to send a PM to someone about a quick question or something. It would also just be pretty interesting to know.
It would be nice if users could 'check in' when they attend certain events together like Alteryx Inspire, Tableau Conference, or a local community event.
The event people are checked-in to could be posted as a status next to a user's name (ex. JoshKushner - at Alteryx Inspire 2018) and popular events could be summarized on the community home page.
This could publicize to other community users meet-up opportunities they might not have been aware of and could facilitate community engagement in real life.
