    Did you miss our Customer Advisory Board on October 21?
    We want to say a big thank you to all the customers and business partners who were able to make it, and for the participation (to those who presented and those who engaged with us)!

    We know not everyone can attend for the "live" event due to time zone differences or you may have business commitments that conflict.  We did record the event and it is available (in 2 parts) on our GRC Community Box folder.  The link to all content is here.   If you have trouble accessing the Box folder, just send me an email at

    Did you know that we keep links to enablements, release info and more on the GRC Community Main page for easy access?  Just <scroll down> to the Announcement section and you will see a lot of great content easily accessible to you without having to search for it!

    Sharing your feedback via Gartner Peer Insights
    We really appreciate you taking time to share your thoughts and comments on Gartner Peer Insights (GPI).  In the past, Gartner would contact customers directly as part of the Magic Quadrant process to get direct feedback.  They are no longer doing this and will be relying solely on feedback shared by customers in the Gartner Peer Insights  (GPI) portal. We really need your help in ensuring that they get the feedback they need.  We value your input for OpenPages and thank you in advance.

    Please note - Your opinion is shared anonymously.  You will need to provide your business email / info to sign up, but this and your name will not be shown publicly.  Only the industry and location (ie North American banking) and job title will be shown.

    At present there is an incentive (i.e. a thank you for your approved review).  Reviewers will receive a $25 Visa gift card from Gartner. The Peer Insights Team will provide the gift card shortly after your review is published.  To share a review of OpenPages with Watson, please go here.

    I hope you are all keeping safe and well. 

    If you have any questions about the above info or the Community, please do reach out to me.
