We are updating the requirements for Community registration. As of 7/21/21 all users will be required to register a phone number with their My Alteryx accounts. If you have already registered, you will be prompted on your next login to add your phone number.
With the meeting theme and speakers decided, it’s time to schedule your meeting! You can create a user group meeting even on EventBrite.com, along with tracking attendance. Eventbrite allows you to share the meeting on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Meetup can also help with scheduling a meeting and tracking who will and won’t attend. In addition, it provides you with a group mailing list and a place to store shared files (such as presentations).
Email Announcement to current User Group Members
Alteryx owns the official User Group Roster because of confidentiality agreements. However, Alteryx wants to help promote your group! Once you have your event scheduled we’ll add your User Group meeting to Events @ Alteryx. Alteryx will also contact the users in your area announcing the User Group host and information. Please submit the Alteryx User Group Leaders Meeting Request Form with all the event details 3 weeks prior to your meeting.
Share, Share, Share!
Create a fun #hashtag for all your posts. Make promoting your User Group fun and memorable!
Almost there! Last steps are to make sure you are prepared for your meeting:
Have you efficiently marketed your event?
· Have you filled out your Alteryx User Group Leaders Meeting Request Form?
· Do you have a plan for reminders in place once the date gets closer?
Have you collected all of your presenters’ slides ahead of time?
· Collect slides to create a deck and email out to your presenters with a thank you confirmation.
Are name tags prepared to give out at your meeting?
· See page 4 for directions on name tags
Check-In set up
· Pull RSVP List from EventBrite or MeetUp and use for Check-In.
Show up at meeting site early to test A/V
Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Be sure to discuss the cadence you want for your User Group and set a date for the next User Group meeting at the end of your meeting.
Rewind and Repeat!
Follow the steps above for planning meetings two and beyond!
Don’t forget to thank everyone for attending the meeting! Post shout-outs on social media. A little recognition goes a loooong way! Check the Alteryx User Group Leaders Community for more tips and interaction with other leaders around the world!
Make sure to share minutes and take pictures to post on your User Group Page.
Running a User Group sometimes takes a few trial runs to see what fits the group the best. Don’t be afraid to play around with the formatting of the meeting to suit your members’ needs.
