🕘 What's coming soon?


Dynatrace Community Team is kicking off into the new month and new year with a fresh pack of plans, ideas and improvements. Some of them you'll catch immediately, others are going to be meant to improve your user experience in more secret, hidden way 😉 Take a look what's on agenda on January!


👉  Notifications view

Managing the Community platform UI there's always some area for improvement - knowing that, we're planning to create a bit smoother and intuitive way to display notifications. Soon checking what responses, kudos, or badges you've received, won't be demanding from you opening a new page. You'll be able to check them in the pop-up window, just like large social media platforms do. In this particular case, they're the ones to follow 😉

👉  Label improvements

Notifications for label subscription, label descriptions in the forums, and more - stay tuned for some cool stuff around forum labels!

👉  Welcoming strategy

We love to analyze how theory and plans are actually working with deep browses of the statistics. Because of that, we're planning to understand the needs of new guests to the Community platform even better. We're preparing a strategy that will be introducing to and guiding around the forum in the first steps. This way, we would like to convert more Community members into regular visitors and give them a chance to quickly understand how they can benefit from the Dynatrace Community!

👉  DynaMights SWAG

Our super-user program has been working for almost 3 months now! Ties between members are strengthening and they keep shining as the brightest stars of the Community. Now we're preparing some new pack of benefits for them to make every DynaMight feel even more special and recognized for their extraordinary engagement to the growth of the Dynatrace Community. 

👉  Q&A forum cleanup

As some of you might've noticed, from the beginning of December we're making deep research and cleanup of all Q&A forums and searching for threads without answers, solutions, or enough feedback. We want to make this section of Community as much helpful and universal for every visitor as possible and now browsing threads should give even more help. In January, we're planning to finish this large cleanup.


Have an amazing new year of 2022, stay healthy and build Community with us! See you in February!
