hide query helper by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic


For new users the query helper is opened by default. We have gotten a lot of feedback that new users run into considerable issues with it making it harder for them to understand what's going on. We should not show it by default for new users until it is improved.

GIVEN I'm a new visitor to the query service
WHEN opening
THEN the query helper is not opened by default

Acceptance criteria:

  • new user does not see query helper opened by default
  • query helper can still be accessed via button in the left-hand menu

Where can we test it? :)

So I just noticed that it's live now ;) @Lydia_Pintscher

I think we can consider it done if it's live, tested by few of us and no complaints have been received so far?
