🕘 What's coming soon?


A new month means new pack of improvements you're going to see throughout Dynatrace Community. Some of them are going to be a bit more backstage and play hidden hero role, other you'll surely notice quickly. Take a look at the things that are on the agenda as the most breaking novelties for February!

👉  New welcoming strategy

After research, mockups, tests, and brainstorms, big changes are on the agenda now in terms of the way how new or potentially new users are greeted from their very first steps with the Dynatrace Community. We want to engage them, show them all the greatest benefits of being a registered user, and make them feel at home quickly. Expect some UI and UX changes in that area in the coming weeks!

👉  Refreshment of the Community FAQ section

A need to take a look at the most asked questions isn't only a matter of newbies. This is why we're taking a look at the current shape of this section to address content gaps or dated parts. Purpose? FAQ should be precise and helpful for every user, and based on the latest greatest forum possibilities.

👉  Just a little bit more of Q&A cleanup

Q&A forums are the large pillar of Dynatrace Community and we're happy soon all of them will be more up-to-date and filled with larger feedback. In February, "Getting started" and "Dashboarding" are the forums remaining to check how many threads demand some updates or actions.


👉 Community Events module
Soon, you'll see a brand new forum type called Events. This module will make it super easy to create and run any Community-led events, such as webinars, ask-me-anything sessions, Zoom calls with our super users, and more. If you're interested in using our Community for any kind of webinar, session, knowledge sharing, or feedback collection - reach out and we'll be happy to organize it!


👉 Video interviews with Members of the Month
We're preparing the first video interviews with our most engaged Community members - the winners of the latest Member of the Month awards. No marketing, just a purely natural conversation!


Enjoy this year's shortest month, stay healthy and build Community with us! See you in March!
