April 2020 Community Highlights

Welcome back to another PBI Community recap! April saw a focus on Super Users and updating of several of our support articles to provide you with even more useful information on how to use the community. However, we've also announced a brand-new community in the product family and our T-shirt contest winner since the previous Community Highlights post. Of course, there was also lots of useful information from our community bloggers again. Check out the full April overview below.
