Yes, they’re here
There is a search bar at the top of the screen. Type anything you’d like to look for. Use this function often - thanks to this, you won’t repeat the same question or post a duplicate of the product idea that already exists.
If you follow only some of the tags and topics in the forum, the forum home page can be personalized to your needs. Just press the “All posts” button and choose the way the content will be showed to you.
Pictures, gifs, code, videos, files, tables, links – almost everything that could help us understand your issue and answer your question. Remember that each attachment can weight max. 50 MB and you can attach up to 10 files.
Yes! On the right, you can see the “Ask an Expert” button. Use it to send the notification to the expert of the topic you are interested in. Also, you can use @ function to ask a specific user in the forum to respond.
An answer has to directly answer the main question. If you just want to add something more, ask about details of the answer or just say “thank you”, use comments.
If you think that an answer in your topic is exactly what you needed for your issue, choose it as the best answer. It will be highlighted by the green background. Then every user that searches for this issue will immediately know how to fix it.
You can still leave the question open if you want, for example, to hear the opinion of other users about this specific issue. Maybe they will provide you with an alternative solution? But if you think that there is nothing more to add – go ahead and close the question.
The Dynatrace Product Ideas forum is a place to go.
In this article you can find an explanation for each status.
It depends on many things: how complicated it is, what are the Dynatrace plans and priorities at the moment, what are the risks, how many customers will benefit from it. Sometimes Product Managers can tell you the ETA, but in most cases, it’s hard to come up with a precise timeline.
Thanks to your votes, we know which ideas are most needed right now. Voting makes the RFE more visible and thanks to this, we can react faster to it.
Add comments to make your feedback more prominent.
Everyone when creating a post! Tag your question and product idea, so it will be categorized in a proper way in the forum. Forum moderators can edit the tags.
Thanks to tags, the experts can find your question or product idea quicker and they can react faster to it. Remember – not everyone follows everything in the forum. Thanks to proper tags, you notify the experts on the topic that you’re seeking an answer to.
There is no rule, but it’s usually better to use less than more. If you are precise with your tags, you don’t waste the time of tag experts that aren’t connected to your topic and have more chance to get to the people that will help you.
Use either of these tags when the question or RFE relates ONLY to the specific deployment of the product – the Dynatrace Managed or just Dynatrace Saas.
Be precise. If the question is strictly about Real User Monitoring - just tag it “RUM” and this will be enough. Remember that you want to reach out only to the topic experts – you don’t have to make noise for everyone else.
It’s our get-together forum where you can read all the things about our Community: news, updates, challenges, awards, community guides, webinars, and more! Follow it if you want to be up to date with what’s going on in the Dynatrace Community.
