What is an Internal Alteryx User Group?

An opportunity for Alteryx users to meet internally within their company to share use cases, workflows, tips & tricks and best practices. An internal Alteryx User Group enables users to connect with peers in other teams, departments and offices in their organization to gain insights on how to leverage Alteryx.

 

How often do users meet and what are topics of discussion?

Internal Alteryx User Groups get together monthly for one hour in-person and/or via WebEx. Meeting frequency does vary so it’s recommended to survey the user base. See attached sample Alteryx Internal User Group Survey Questions which will help tailor your meeting content to your company’s users’ needs. Below are some sample agendas.

 

Sample Agenda #1

2:00pm - 2:10pm: Welcome & Introductions

2:10pm - 2:25pm: Review of Survey Results – How can the User Group best serve you?

  • Meeting Frequency, User Department & Level, Desired Meeting Topics, etc.

8:45am - 9:00am: Q&A and Call for Use Case Presenters

 

Let’s Get Started!

Here are the steps to launch your internal User Group:

  1. Build a User Group Leadership Committee: Get a group of Alteryx enthusiasts to collaborate and lead, think about having User Group leaders representing different departments
  2. Connect Alteryx users internally: Create an internal intranet community or internal listserv so users can collaborate before and after meetings
  3. Survey Alteryx users: Determine desired topics, current benefits, challenges and meeting frequency. See attached sample survey.
  4. Plan Meetings: Create agenda content from users’ needs discovered in survey results
  5. Share Results: Record meetings, share presentations and provide recaps
