We are running a series of remote usability tests until January and we would really appreciate if you’d have a run at them.
The idea is that in the holiday period some of us are going home or we have friends over that never heard of XWiki. It’s really important than we improve the first time experiences with the product, since some of us are long term contributors or advanced users and it’s harder for us to put ourselves in beginners shoes.
So if you want and have a ‘test subject’ that you would like to see how they struggle with XWiki, you can use this usability scenario and record your findings:
The plan is to go over in January at the data gathered over the holidays and draw some conclusions, create some issues, make some proposals, etc.
Please be as explicit as you can in the ‘Evaluator Notes’ part. You can provide struggles, ideas, solutions about the user’s experience with the task.
Also, let me know what you think about the scenario and if I should create one for more advanced users or if some of you are interested in participating to such usability sessions remotely.
Here are the scenario’s steps:
T2. Change logo
T3. Create user
T4. Create page
T5. Advanced editing
T6. Page relations
T7. Adding attachments
T8. Creating navigation
T9. Adding rights
T10. Installing extension
Here is a sample task:
Scenario Duration: 1:00 - 1:30 hours
Version: 10.10+ ideally
I will collect the results on this page:
Thanks for reading and let’s see what insight we gather from this process. Thank you for your help!
