Programs & Events Dashboard/Admins

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The Programs & Events Dashboard has proven itself to be a key tool for many community organizers, including Program Leaders that work in the field of education, GLAM, edit-a-thons, and in Affiliates.

As this tool matures, it has become necessary to make sure that it has the community support it needs. One of the aspects of this is a group of Dashboard Admins that help the community by providing it with basic support when needed.

We are therefore calling for volunteers that want to participate in this field. Their responsibilities cover the following:

  • Providing support to users and Affiliates
  • Monitoring & reporting on the use of the Dashboard

Dashboard Admins, like many other roles in the the Wikimedia community, are required to sign a Non-disclosure Agreement ("NDA") with the Wikimedia Foundation, in order to ensure that data privacy policies are respected by all.

All Admins are required to take a (short) online training on how to be Admins, besides demonstrating knowledge on how to use the Dashboard.

User: Akbarali. I've pinged WMF folks. We'll try to get this admin process running smoothly again; it requires someone at WMF to handle the NDA, but I don't think anyone is currently officially in charge of it.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:55, 19 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
