We’re excited to announce that phase one of the DataRobot Community UI/UX revamp is now live. In this phase, we launched a new & improved home page and new navigation.
Read below to see the changes in more detail.
New Home Page
Our new home page was designed to provide members with fast, easy help–something that we’ve been working on for quite a while!
AND! We've added links to the places outside of community that our members want to go to most.
You may remember that a few months ago we began reorganizing the community by merging boards and categories, with the goal of providing more straightforward navigation. Now, navigation of the community is structured by how you’d like to get help:
Ask a question (discussion forums)
Watch an example video (Learning Sessions/webinars)
Read an article (knowledge base & blogs)
The home page and navigation changes are just the beginning of what’s to come! We will continue to keep you updated on the UI/UX changes via Community News. We welcome any feedback you might have; comment below or contact one of your moderators, @lhaviland or @datarobotmeg.
We wanted to give you an update on the community UI/UX revamp.
During the first phase of changes, we’re restyling some components and layouts to make it faster and easier for you to ask & answer questions and find just the right content. Behind the scenes we’ve been doing lots of work to ensure that your community experience remains intact as long as possible, until the “big reveal!”
The new community will be getting kicked off with some small, but super significant (in the long term) changes. A major part of this revamp is to provide you with fast, easy help - so you’ll see an increased focus on asking questions, watching learning sessions and webinars, and reading the great knowledge & learning content.
What you’ll see:
The following changes on the menu:
Be on the lookout for these name changes next week! The content within each board will not change; if you have any problems finding anything after these changes, please reply to us here or contact your moderators, @Linda or @datarobotmeg.
We’re always looking for ideas from our growing community of members! Please let us know what you like, what you don’t like, what you would like more of, etc. We are looking forward to your feedback!
We’re taking the first steps on the road to Community 2.0 (see more about that initiative here). Today, we will be making changes that consolidate similar content types so they’re easier to find.
Here are the changes you will see:
(1) The discussion boards from the various categories will be consolidated under one new category, Discussions. (Makes sense, right?)
This category (which was renamed from "Platform") will have three sub-categories: Platform,Paxata Data Prep, AIPlatform Trial.
The Platform sub-category will now contain discussions from these forums: Automated Machine Learning, Automated Time Series, MLOps, and Developer Discussions.
The Paxata Data Prep and AI Platform Trial forums will be just the same as before.
(2) Next, the Learning Center category will be renamed to Learning Sessions.
This category will contain one sub-category for now: Sessions. (As Community 2.0 progresses, you’ll soon see more new categories under here, that distinguish on-demand vs. upcoming sessions, and other new features.)
(3) Finally, the knowledge base articles from the various categories will be consolidated under a new category, Knowledge Base. (See what we're doing now?!)
This category (which was renamed from "DataRobot and AI/ML") will have three sub-categories: Resources, Blogs, Eureqa Academic.
The Resources sub-category will contain the KB articles from these places: Learning Center (Resources), Support FAQs, and from the General Knowledge Base.
The Blogs sub-category will contain currently published blogs.
The Eureqa Academic sub-category is a rename of the previous Eureqa sub-category; this category includes only Eureqa Academic content.
An important note—all content from these categories will continue to be available in the community after it's moved. If you have any trouble locating something in its new location, or questions about Community 2.0, you can:
