Launch the 'gettingstartedtasktoolbar' tour by default
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: swalling

Description:
Right now, the workflow for GettingStarted tours is as follows:

  • The user gets 'gettingstartedtasktoolbarintro' once and immediately on their first view of a suggested task page. This is a one step intro tour, and then is never seen again.
  • The user is then shown the task page, with the GettingStarted toolbar. They can click "Show me how" in the toolbar, which launches the 'gettingstartedtasktoolbar' tour.

Without changing the toolbar behavior, let's automatically launch the 'gettingstartedtasktoolbar' tour after the user completes the intro tour. Right now, only 9% of users are using the tour provided by "Show me how", which is fewer than we intended.

Note: ideally, we want to launch 'gettingstartedtasktoolbar' or 'gettingstartedtasktoolbarve' conditionally based on whether the user has VisualEditor enabled.

My understanding is it should still be auto-launched only once. The difference is that now it's the full tour, not the one step intro.

Let me know if I have the wrong idea.
