👉 We've launched the brand new, dedicated welcoming page for guests and new visitors encouraging to join Dynatrace Community!

👉 As a part of the Welcoming Strategy for 2022, we've added a banner for non-logged visitors showing the main benefits of being a user.

👉 We said goodbye to the Classic Products forum category - it's no longer visible in the navigation, being hidden in the archive.

👉 We celebrated 1 year anniversary of launching the Dynatrace Community on a new platform!

👉 We've done the broad research of badges and ranks - expect some minor but important changes in names and rules of assigning them.

🕘 What's coming soon?


We're having a lot of on an agenda for upcoming weeks of April. Development is planned on various areas: some improvements are going to be rather minor, while some of them will catch your attention quickly. Take a look what are we preparing! 👇

👉 Further growth of the DynaMights group

A special program for our super users, launched back in October 2021, consists of 20 most engaged Community members. In April, we're going to invite to this elite a group of another 7 users. Their names and exact quantity are going to be announced in the coming weeks!

👉 Special Q&A session with PMs for the challenge participants

Taking part in our community challenges rewards not only with recognition and a special forum badge, but sometimes it gives something more. In the coming days we'll have a special Q&A session between PMs and users who took part in January's challenge. Delayed, but is happening eventually!

👉 Videos with interviews


After inspiring conversations with Danne Aguiar in February and Gerald Haydtner in March, expect another cool talk with our customer in April!

👉 Unclear labels research

We're going to reach out to PMs to clarify some labels that names might be confusing, unprecise or misleading.

👉 A new button for the Product Ideas forum

One of the hottest forums in the Dynatrace Community is going to get a new "Suggest an idea" button for better navigation and user experience.
