Measure percentage of Commons users opting out of MediaSearch as the default search experience
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Special:MediaSearch will be the default search experience on Commons starting 4/1 (for anonymous users) and 5/1 for all users (assuming no blockers arise). Logged in users will have the option to opt out via a preference and continue to use Special:Search as their default search experience (see T273979). We would like to measure what percentage of users choose to opt out and continue to use Special:Search as their default search experience. We'd like to see this number on a weekly basis.

Event Timeline

The product analytics team will review and prioritize this request during our next board review meeting on Tuesday, 30 March 2021.

mpopov triaged this task as Medium priority.
mpopov moved this task from Triage to Upcoming Quarter on the Product-Analytics board.

This has been de-prioritized from the SD perspective - we're putting this in the backlog.

No longer needed since we have adequate statistics on MediaSearch usage.
