April brought us a bunch of important updates and changes that are crucial for the Community development. Take a look what happened last month throughout our platform, maybe something has already caught your attention! 😎


👉 Bonus points assigned to each user are now visible in the user profile!


👉 Following the plan, now the classic product forums are gone for good! If you still need access to the recent downloads for NAM and AppMon, or you miss the old knowledge base, it's all hidden under this link.

👉 The group of Community super users is growing - in April, we welcomed 7 new DynaMights!

👉 We've finally organized a Q&A Zoom session between PMs and Community challenge participants who had a chance to learn more about Kubernetes and Dynatrace Managed.

👉 It's always good to remind the good practices - we've posted an article on how to effectively attach images to posts in the Community.


👉 We've done the last of the great research, now to clean up the Synthetic Monitoring forum from dated and irrelevant content.

👉 Cleanup - round two has started. We're taking care of the newer content to improve the number of threads with help or solutions provided!


👉 We've welcomed 33 new actively engaged users on the board of Dynatrace Community!

👉 ​​​​​​​Further progress in the Q&A forums cleanup, stage two

After long and complex research of the forums we made in December 2021, we've eliminated most of the outdated content. However, time moves on and there are still plenty of threads demanding some attention, feedback, or direct help. We're now reviewing the Real User Monitoring and REST API forums.

👉 The Events module will be finally there!

It took almost two months to go through security checks and we now have a green light to integrate Community Events with our Zoom. You can expect regular Community Ask-Me-Anything sessions and other Community-led events soon!

👉 Improved formula of the Community challenges

Nothing's perfect, so the Community team is preparing a brainstorm to make well-known challenges we're dropping every month even better. More extraordinary themes? New gratification for participants? Or maybe something even more exciting to keep the interest big? Who knows...
