Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

See parent task T202132: EPIC: Generate one-off metric snapshots for mobile editing documentation for more information on background and acceptance criteria.

What is the overall edit conversion rate—the percentage of edit sessions which reach the ready event where the edit ends up successfully saved—on desktop and mobile, and in the visual editor and wikitext editors?

Results

Caveat: there were only 13 000 mobile visual editor sessions in the data set (0.2%), so the reliability of this data is limited.

Given how hard the visual editor is to find on mobile, and given that it's not the default anywhere, there may not be enough data to generate a reliable metric for the last table.
