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.
