Hello everyone, 


I've been using Alteryx for a year now and I can't get enough, I think it is such a great tool which has been pivotal in the automation of our departments process!


Very excited to learn more and (hopefully) achieve my Advanced Cert!

I am 3 months in and definitely feeling some of that excitement. It is great having a supportive community to help with any roadblocks along the way! Good luck with the Advanced Cert :)


Welcome Lilly! 

We are thrilled you already have a year of experience under your belt. The weekly challenges can help hone your skills for that Advanced Certification, and our user groups can help you find people of similar skill and interests to work with!

Welcome to the Community @LillyVogt95, Its awesome to have you join us!


Be sure to look around the Community - it's a fantastic place for learning. A couple of resources I would especially recommend knowing about are:

  • Alteryx Designer Discussions - A place where users can ask questions about specific Designer workflows they are working on and receive help from members of the Community. Typical response time (from what I've seen) is under 10 minutes for someone to reply with a potential solution, so it's a speedy resource for bespoke information. Additionally, you can search using the search function at the top right for specific issues if you happen to run into any that may have been faced by other users before.
  • Alteryx User Groups - When I first got into Alteryx, I didn't join User Groups because I thought they would be very technical and need plenty of experience before diving in. However, they aren't. User groups are a peaceful environment to discuss workflows and what's going on in the Alteryx world and a great place to network with people in the Community. Even better, with the world still being very much virtual at the moment, most of the User Groups (including the North East UK User Group, which I am currently a leader of) are hosting virtual events, so they are easy to join.
  • The Alteryx Academy - This is the easiest the best place to learn about Alteryx and how to use it. I recommend the learning paths, including short snippets of learning specific topics, including Alteryx for Excel users, which helped me translate much of my Excel knowledge into Alteryx. Alteryx also delivers weekly challenges based on real-life situations and community-submitted problems. They are a fantastic way to learn practical uses of Designer. Also, it's fascinating to see the many different approaches to answering the same problem. Once you have understood Alteryx, I recommend the Alteryx Certifications. They are free to do (Core and Advanced) and provide a valuable benchmark for your knowledge. You can also retake them in 7 days if you don't pass, so don't feel any pressure to know everything before giving them a go!


I hope you find Alteryx easy to learn and intuitive to use. Do remember that almost every tool has an example workflow and help documentation if you right-click the tool in the tool palette:



("Help" for the tool documentation, "Open Example" for the example workflow). 


And be sure to search for/ask for help in the Community if you need help. Alternatively, feel free to drop me a message here on the Community!
