This task involves the work with identifying what can be done to improve the mobile editing onboarding flow.
As we explore making VE the default editing interface on mobile (see: T221195), we anticipate there being more contributors experiencing VE for the first time. What is important these people know about editing? How effective is the current onboarding flow at communicating to contributors what they need to know about editing upon arriving at the editor for the first time?
In addition to newcomers, there are many experienced IP editors that are affected by the onboarding flow – what are their needs? How does the current experience meet them?
- How do retrained mobile VE contributors behave?
- How frequently are they contributing?
- What edits are they making most consistently?
- What edit(s) did they get started with?
- What value do they get from editing?
- What action can we assume signifies a contributor getting this value?
- What have other teams (i.e. iOS) learned about mobile onboarding?
- What is the current mobile editing onboarding experience?
- What parts of the current oboarding experience are not adding value? (i.e. "Welcome to Wikipedia")
- Who is affected by mobile editing's onboarding flow?
- What are their needs?
- How does the current onboarding experience meet their needs?
