🔜 What's to look forward to?


November brings some big news and significant updates to the Dynatrace Community. Except for the new editions of our monthly newsletter, we're almost ready with some crucial revamps that we've been talking about last month. Do you know what we mean? 👀


👉 Dynatrace Community redesign - UPDATE


After weeks of sketches, brainstorm, testing, and patient work, the final version of the rebranded Dynatrace Community is ready to be implemented. The big launch is planned in the upcoming weeks of November. Stay tuned for one of the most important updates this year!


👉 New exciting Community Challenge - NOVEMBER 15, 2022


In the last two months we stayed on the technical side if it comes to our Community Challenges. It's time to go back to those off-beat, after-hours subjects... Stay tuned for the newest edition!


👉 New Community Q&A Session - NOVEMBER 15 & NOVEMBER 17, 2022


Last month we've discussed product ideas. Now we'd like to talk about something even more important - finding answers. Are you wondering what is the best way to ask a question to get an answer quickly? Or maybe you aren't sure what's the purpose of each forum section? Or what are the alternative sources of knowledge available to you except the Community? 


Save the date - now for November 15th, and for the November 17th.




Keep calm and see you in December! 🎄
