March Mayhem is our opportunity to share a sneak peek into the New Relic roadmap with you, our amazing community. You have the chance to vote and prioritize all month long, so be sure to check back weekly and keep the votes coming in!

We can’t promise that our champion, or any other features on the bracket, will be implemented, nor can we share a direct timeline for these things right now. However, the feature that wins March Mayhem will be given special treatment in the community: you will get an inside peek into its progress regularly to see how the winning item is coming along until it is implemented. Pretty cool, right? Thanks New Relic Project Management Team! This fun initiative also helps our Product Team know what the voice of the customer needs out of our products and tools, so don’t be shy.

You can ‘watch’ this category for weekly updates by clicking the O dropdown menu here, and never miss a beat by following us on Twitter: @learn_nr and/or #marchmayhem2018.

If you are passionate about seeing any of these features implemented, please tell your friends and colleagues about March Mayhem so we can really pump up the votes!

Go team!

Thanks for letting me know, @jhallquist! I changed your “new” status so you could upload your image! Go ahead and edit your post with the pdf now. :blush:



thanks for updating that! Been using NR for years but this is my first post :smiley:


Say what? “Sorry, new users can not upload attachments.”? Not sure how we can enter if we can’t upload the pdf… (also not sure how I’m a new user, been using New-Relic for years…)

Try again @gergnz! :thumbsup: I think that error means “new-ish to this community platform”, not new to New Relic.

You should be good now—I also changed your permissions so you can upload your bracket now.



Don’t count me for prizes since I’m not a US resident, but my votes:
