This page is a translated version of the page Event:Organizer Tools Office Hour 5 and the translation is 7% complete.

Are you a campaign organizer or campaign partipant? Do you want to learn about the new tools and resources being created for Wikimedia campaigns, including an event registration tool? If yes, please join the Campaigns team of the Wikimedia Foundation in our October office hours!

During this office hour, you can meet the Campaigns team, and we'll have language support for speakers of Arabic, English, French, and Swahili. We will demo the new features on the event registration tool, which is an on-wiki tool to register and manage event participant lists. We will collect feedback on our new project (event discovery). We will also discuss how we can improve the experience for campaign organizers and participants overall. We want to hear from you, so please join us!

Office hour dates

We will be conducting two separate office hour sessions, so we can accommodate people in different timezones. Please note that we will cover the same material in both sessions.

We encourage you to attend one or both sessions!

About the October 2023 office hours

In October 2023, we will be hosting two office hour sessions because we’re wrapping up the event registration project and we’re starting a new project: event discovery. For this reason, we want to demo the final product for event registration and collect feedback for the event discovery project.

In this office hour, you will be able to:

  • Learn about the event registration tool, so you can use the tool in your events
  • Watch a demo of the newest features of the event registration tool, which include:
    • Integration with the Programs & Events Dashboard
    • Organizer can email participants
    • Participants can answer optional questions about themselves
  • Share your ideas and opinions for our upcoming event discovery project

About the Campaigns team

The Campaigns team is a part of the Product & Technology department of the Wikimedia Foundation. As a team, we want to improve the experience of organizing and attending events, especially events that focus on contributing content to the wikis, such as edit-a-thons, writing contests, and photography contests. This way, it will be easier for people to organize or join events and make impactful contributions.

We are a software development team, so we create and improve technical solutions for people. Our most recent project is event registration, which provides organizers an on-wiki way to register participants and manage participant data. Our next project will be event discovery, which is in an early research phase.
