Hello April! There are hints of spring in many parts of the world and that brings feelings of hope after such a difficult year. Hope makes us want to celebrate and acknowledge the many great things taking flight. This month we celebrate a Qlik employee. You can find her in many parts of the Community, but mainly you will see her in the Ideation forum, governing the Ideation process, answering questions, and ensuring all Ideas are reviewed and moved throughout the ideation stages. Qlik’s Strategic Marketing Operations Specialist, Meghann MacDonald is an absolute pleasure to work with and is incredibly intelligent.
Meghann grew up in the United States and attended Northeastern University in Boston, where she earned her Bachelors in International Business and Marketing at the D’Amore McKim School of Business. It was there that she had the opportunity to work for Qlik during a 6-month internship at the Newton office within the Product Marketing organization. She fell in love with Qlik and working with data and kept up connections after going back to school to complete her degree.
After graduating, she started at Qlik full-time in the Global Products organization, working with projects and people from all areas of the company. She has built multiple Qlik Sense apps to help with the QlikWorld breakout sessions, QlikWorld session guides, content management, asset discovery, Ideation, and other Product Marketing programs. Meghann works with our G2 partners to gather reviews for Qlik Sense and Qlik Replicate, working with content creators across Qlik to manage and synchronize our assets. She is now the Ideation Moderator and enjoys engaging with and learning more about our customers and Community users.
Meghann is in the process of transferring to the UK where she will live and work. After living in Shanghai for 6 months and Indonesia for 7 months, this will be her 4th country of residence. Meghann loves outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking, and camping. She likes to attend concerts and see all different genres of live music. Meghann also loves to play video games and read. We’re impressed!
We are so pleased to work with Meghann. Please join us and recognize her with a “Round of Applause” by leaving a comment and giving a Like to show Meghann how much we appreciate her! @Meghann_MacDonald @Katie_Abbott @Melissa_Potvin

Two years after the re-platforming and relaunch of our Qlik Community we have successfully completed the roll out of many design improvements. The changes offer an updated look and feel and improved user experience. Starting in late 2020 the Qlik Community began on a 3-phase redesign effort as follows:
Phase 1 - New creative assets - sitewide update to banners and inside pages
Phase 2 - New Home Page, Unified Search and new Top Level page
Phase 3 - New creative assets for blogs and groups and resources page
We hope that you enjoy the updates and welcome your thoughts and feedback, as always.
See you online,
Director, Qlik Community
While it’s hard to believe we have entered 2021, I am sure everyone is happy to say “good riddance” to 2020! We will continue to bring bright spots to the Community this year and celebrate our outstanding members. It is an honor to introduce to you the first 2021 recipient of Round of Applause: Taoufiq, a Qlik Community member that holds one of the highest ranks in the Community, Master II.
In the two years since Taoufiq joined the Community, he has posted almost 1700 times, provided 500 solutions, has received countless likes, and has read nearly 50K posts. Taoufiq is an impactful leader in the Community.
Taoufiq told us he joined the Community because, like many others, he was impressed with the work of Sunny Talwar, Henric Cronström, Marcus Sommer, Tresesco, Kush, Vegar, and other MVPs; and wondered what they got out of it. Then one day he proposed a solution to a problem and right after, the person messaged him to say that he saved their job. How’s THAT for making a difference! He felt immense pride and subsequently began sharing with other members of the community. Taoufiq has improved his technical knowledge by conversing with others and has made many friends in the Community. They all challenge each other to find the best answer first.
Taoufiq was born and raised in the desert in the south of Morocco. He never misses an opportunity to spend time in the desert above the oasis with palm trees and sand dunes with his wife and two children.
We are so delighted to have Taoufiq as a vital member of the Qlik Community. Please join us in recognizing him with a “Round of Applause” by leaving a comment and giving a Like to show Taoufiq how much we appreciate his leadership. @Taoufiq_Zarra @Melissa_Potvin
