Open, MediumPublic


Goal: for changes that we can do to Superset to make it user friendly and intuitive

Things like definitions, naming standards, dashboard standards, guides, dictionaries…

  • Survey/interview PMs:

LGoto edited projects, added Product-Analytics (Kanban); removed Product-Analytics.

We've been able to get a few recommendations from stakeholders as a part of the Content Dataset Questionnaire.

On a related note, have you used Superset or Turnilo and felt like it could do with some improvements ? Please let us know one change you would like to see in these reporting dashboards to make your experience better.

  • Turnilo has been super useful for me. Two main limitations I faced: (1) requiring log-in limits our ability to share data with communities, and (2) calculating deletion ratios requires manual calculation from the data Turnillo provides.
  • There are two main things for me: (1) the "editors" dataset will be the most important one for the Growth team because our metrics and goals are all around editors, as opposed to edits or content, and (2) I hope we can continue to reduce how long it takes data to appear. I would use Turnilo and Superset much more frequently (and would avoid making separate reports) if the data were to update daily.
  • easier discovery of existing dashboard
  • More regular updates of the turnilo "edits-hourly" table (see
  • I would like a toggle button to turn from charts into tabular data. When you have a lot of languages listed at once (e.g., ) it's impossible to really get a handle on what's going on in chart format. Give me a table any day.
  • the ability to define segments and have that show up in superset or turnilo. one example is on the projects. I'd like to create a list of small/medium/large wikis and break those out when analyzing the pageviews table.
