[SURVEY] SolarWinds Customer and MSP Partner Census 2020

Community Manager

IT professionals come from all walks of life, work in all manner of industries, and have experiences making each of them unique. To better understand your personal and professional growth, we’re requesting 10 minutes of your time to complete our annual census.

This survey will cover many aspects of your career, not just the parts where SolarWinds plugs in. The IT landscape is constantly changing, and new needs are continually emerging. Whether it’s migrating workloads to the cloud, the need for a remote workforce, improving security posture, or optimizing line-of-business applications, we want to know: what are you working on today? What are you anticipating tomorrow? What keeps you up at night when you look at the next few years?

As compensation for your time, the first 150 respondents will receive a US$25 Visa® gift card while supplies last (Terms & Conditions apply: US, CA, UKDE).

Everyone who completes the survey and enters their THWACK® username before June 6, 2020 will be rewarded 5,000 THWACK points to use in the store, good toward any purchase.

Was there supposed to be text next to the four boxes at the end? I just put my thwack username in one.

Level 9

I don't know why there were four text boxes at the end.  I only entered my username in the first one.  Maybe I should have entered it four times to see if I could get 20,000 points!

Level 8

I put mine in just the first one as well.

The 4 fields as I have been able to determine are as follows (top to bottom)

First Name

Last Name

Email address

ThwackID

Level 7

I didn't look at the comments here before doing the survey (oops!) so i just filled in my username in the first field like others!

Level 9

It let me retake the survey and enter my information in the format recommended by Jfrazier.  Not sure if it will take.  We'll see if 5k points show up in my account in June.

Level 8

^same

Level 12

Here it says first 150, at end of survey it says 100.  

Also I put my username in first field. 

Level 13

All done.  To be safe, I put my thwack username in all four boxes.

Level 9

Done.  Filled out the last page according to @Jfrazier 's post

Level 9

I put my Thwack username in all 4 fields. 

Level 12

I also put my Thwack username in all 4 fields - glad i wasn't the only one!

i have no problem providing any other information to them, but at least tell me what you want and don't make me have to guess!

Level 9

Done!

Level 14

Done!  And much like others, I only included my user name!!!

Level 14

@Jfrazier Should we contact anyone with the other information?  I only filled out the first field so I wonder if I will even get credit at all.  

Level 11

I have been refreshing this page all day and the link never showed up. Seems a bit unfair that 5 hours ago some people had access to it. I put my thwack ID in the top field, left the rest blank since there were no instructions. I hope I get credit since it seems I'm 5 hours behind on an attempt at the gift card...

Sorry for that folks - there was a pesky bug that I just got confirmation is now fixed. As long as you submitted your username in one of those fields, you're good to go.
