Focus Groups at PASS Summit 2019

At PASS Summit next week, several product team members will be hosting hour-long focus groups, and I encourage you to attend. In these sessions, you can learn about upcoming features and offerings, and express your opinions about those focus areas.

Book now, because there is limited space! Note that if you put these times into your calendar manually, the times are Pacific Standard Time, as most of the United States switches their clocks back an hour this weekend.
