Over the last few weeks, we've been working on the ServiceMax Community Kitchen's gamification program: Community Cook-Off. The cool thing about this wave of badges you can earn is you will be credited for all the work and activity you've done in the past.
For this week's communityallstars, I wanted to recognize the customers who led conversations during our user groups. When planning user group events, it is imperative to gain participation from customers who are willing to share their expertise. Their willingness to contribute their time and knowledge is critical to the success of the event!
One of the key spaces in our community is the Ideas Exchange. It's a place where ServiceMax is benefitting from the input of our customers and partners on the future direction of our solutions.
We created this space in order to increase transparency and accountability, but also give you a place to brainstorm and collaborate around ideas. That's why this week, I wanted to recognize a handful of communityallstars who took the time to come into this area and vote!
Around 65% of the population consists of visual learners, which means these people learn best when they see! Do you consider yourself a visual learner? I definitely am, so screenshots and graphs are my best friends.
We recently relaunched our User Groups at ServiceMax, so we're excited to see some activity picking up there! Our first communityallstar of the week is Mary Lou Jelinek, since she started the conversation!
Mark Varley replied, ready to share, but because of Mary Lou's interest in follow-up surveys, Brenden Burkinshaw of zip industries was able to share some of his insight from their newly launched survey program.
This thread is just a small, very small, peek into what our user groups are actually like. To learn more about our upcoming sessions, check out our Maximize Tour 2018.
One topic we're looking to learn more about during the Maximize user groups is change and transition management. Which stakeholder is the most important to get 'on board' for a new release/feature or project? We'd love you to answer below, or respond to this poll:
This week for our communityallstars, I wanted to highlight a simple discussion thread featuring Hasnain Yusufali and Sonia Genesse. This is a great example of what the ServiceMax Community is here for.
Hasnain came to you all, our users, with a question about your experience. Have you run into an exception from the dispatch console when doing a multi-assignment? Our Knowledge Master recommended filing a case, to pinpoint what's triggering the error. However, another customer, Sonia joined in, trying to get more details to help solve the problem.
We've seen some great engagement around the upcoming Design Time session! Within the last 12 hours, a handful of customers have shared what they'd like to hear more about during the call.
So this week, shout out to the customers contributing to the checklist conversation! This week's communityallstars include Paula Vogler, Adriano Vega, Jan Staufenberg, Joe Gearhart, and Dan Schiess! Their responses help our Product Managers understand what you need, which in turn helps them designer a better, more useful product.
