2. Community highlights - April 2023.png


Hello, Community friends! 🖐



🆕 Dynatrace Community updates


👉 Dynatrace Community recently reached new highs: now it consists of more than 60.000 members!

👉 We've finished the first large quarterly product idea review of 2023! Over the last 2 months, we've synced with 40 various Product Managers from numerous Dynatrace product areas, reviewing more than 1.000 product ideas assigned with status "new". If you've already noticed some updates on your ideas - that's the reason! If not yet... Stay tuned.

👉 One small button on the main page, one giant leap for the Community: we've improved our "Community sign in" button for our non-logged users. Now it's better visible, quickly catches attention and easily distinguishes from log-in button for Dynatrace.

👉 Another community tip has been published, this time about available support resources:  we've talked about how to successfully search for existing content within the Community and Documentation, where to find learning materials about Dynatrace, and more.

👉 Make sure to check the summary of Perform 2023 and Community Rock Star Awards
