DAC Highlight Reel: Event Updates, Become A Speaker, Summit 2021

Monday, March 15, 2021

As a reminder...

The DAC environment is not a user group website replacement. We tried to create elements that were like a traditional UG discussion board and the ability to organize local user groups through the platform--however we ran into a number of hurdles with legacy local user group data coupled with user expectations per the traditional sites. So instead of trying to create something “better” to serve this purpose, we are doing our best to listen and respond.

Therefore, to best serve our community of users:

  1. We will keep the existing user group websites on for the foreseeable future
  2. The functionality on those sites will remain for local users group organization and management
  3. The forums and discussion boards will remain active and available for all users
  4. Dynamic Communities and Microsoft have heard feedback and requests from UG leaders and members for better UG support as users are migrating their applications from on-premise to the cloud. We are in discussions with Microsoft to best support the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform user groups.
  5. Those discussions do not mean that the traditional on-premise user groups are at risk of going away

Coming Soon! Summit 2021 Booth Sales

We are beyond thrilled to be planning an in-person event, and as long as it’s safe to do so, we’re excited to bring the community back together in Houston, Texas October 12-14, 2021 at the George R Brown Convention Center. Summit will look a little different than previous years due to the impacts of Covid-19. We’re also taking this opportunity to listen to the Community and reimagine our space, our discussions, the experience, and networking opportunities. We’ll be launching Summit 2021 Booth Sales soon!

While we continue to build and create this platform, bring physical events back to the community and execute on-demand and point-in-time digital event programs, we will communicate as well as we can. Specifically, you will see updates like this one on our status, this piece defining the process for Summit NA call for papers, and more.

We continue to listen, redefine and work to bring the best resources we can to the market. We will not get everything right every time, but we will listen, respond and move forward.

Thanks and stay tuned for more updates!
