The Analytics team and I have been working on a tool to make calculating
global metrics easier,--would you be interested in testing it, so it's as
useful as possible to you and all program leaders? It works in
Wikimetrics, but instead of running several different reports, you just
enter the usernames, dates, and timezone and it gives you the Global Metrics.
To finalize its development, we need to know:
1) Is the tool easy to use?
2) What would make it easier to use?
3) How does it compare to your current method of collecting Global Metrics,
whether it's Wikimetrics or a different method?
If you are interested in testing it, it's still in the development
environment here https://metrics-staging.wmflabs.org/reports/program-metrics
Note that usernames need to be separated by carriage returns like this:
and that the "edits" metric is actually pages improved, the name just
hasn't been updated yet. You may receive a server error or the page might
not load, because Labs is having connectivity problems, but this isn't a
problem with the new tool and the Labs team is working hard to fix it.
I hope you get to test it out, and I hope you find it useful!
Program Design & Evaluation
Dear Wikimetrics list,
Due to some updates that wikimetrics wasn't able to handle, we lost a link
to the old report results. Please let us know how this affects you so we
can figure out what the best way to fix it is. If it's not a big deal and
you can just re-run reports, then we won't spend too much time recovering
and we'll focus on making sure this doesn't happen next time.
