Programs & Events Dashboard

Manage and track Wikimedia programs from one place with ease.


Basics

Perché qualcuno dovrebbe preoccuparsi di questo strumento?

Quando un gruppo di collaboratori di Wikimedia sta collaborando allo sviluppo di contenuti di Wikimedia, questo strumento fornisce rapporti su ciò che ogni persona del gruppo sta contribuendo. Dall'avvento dei social media, è diventato più comune per le persone con interessi condivisi collaborare online e vi è interesse a misurare l'impatto delle loro attività condivise. I report generati da questo strumento sono paragonabili ai report di altre piattaforme di social media, che come i report di coinvolgimento offerti da Facebook e Twitter.

Practically all organizations which develop online media in any platform will expect to see reports of the impact of their engagement. Having evidence of impact and a consistent way to measure online engagement encourages organizations and individuals to contribute their expertise to Wikimedia. This tool generates reports which provide that sort of feedback. Praticamente tutte le organizzazioni che sviluppano media online su qualsiasi piattaforma si aspetteranno di vedere rapporti sull'impatto del loro impegno. Avere prove dell'impatto e un modo coerente per misurare il coinvolgimento online incoraggia le organizzazioni e gli individui a contribuire con la loro esperienza a Wikimedia. Questo strumento genera rapporti che forniscono quel tipo di feedback.

Chi dovrebbe usare questo strumento?

Questo strumento è utile per un community manager che supporta un gruppo di contributori di Wikimedia.

I contributori di Wikimedia in un gruppo potrebbero voler visualizzare il dashboard per comprendere i risultati collettivi del gruppo.

Gli esterni di un gruppo potrebbero voler visualizzare la dashboard per avere informazioni su cosa possono fare insieme i gruppi di collaboratori di Wikimedia.

Come funziona lo strumento?

L'uso dello strumento inizia quando un organizzatore di programma imposta un'istanza di un "programma" o "evento". Una volta che la pagina dell'evento è attiva, invitano i contributori di Wikimedia a unirsi al gruppo. Successivamente, un altro impegno con lo strumento è facoltativo. Lo strumento terrà traccia di ciò che tutti i membri del gruppo contribuiscono ai progetti Wikimedia per tutto il tempo in cui è diretto. Può generare report per qualsiasi gruppo.

Quali metriche riporta lo strumento?

Lo strumento può solo contare e segnalare informazioni che sono già pubbliche nei progetti Wikimedia. Il vantaggio è che compila una grande quantità di dati pubblici in modo rapido e automatico. Le metriche predefinite riportate dallo strumento per qualsiasi gruppo sono le seguenti:

  • elenco dei nomi Wikimedia degli utenti nel gruppo
  • elenco degli elementi di Wikimedia (ad esempio, articoli di Wikipedia) a cui ha contribuito qualsiasi membro del gruppo
  • conteggio delle modifiche, che è un conteggio dei contributi a qualsiasi contenuto di Wikimedia
  • numero di nuovi articoli di Wikipedia iniziati
  • numero di parole aggiunte
  • numero di volte in cui i lettori hanno avuto accesso a contenuti sviluppati dal gruppo
  • elenco di caricamenti multimediali su Wikimedia Commons

Cosa può fare qualcuno con un rapporto da questo strumento?

In genere il rapporto verrà condiviso con i membri del gruppo, che amano celebrare il loro successo collettivo.

Il report viene spesso preso in considerazione anche dal team di gestione o comunicazione di un'organizzazione di supporto. Ad esempio, se c'è un progetto Wikipedia in una scuola, l'istruttore può utilizzare questo strumento per fornire un rapporto al capo dipartimento per dimostrare il coinvolgimento degli studenti e l'impatto del progetto. Se esiste un progetto Wikipedia all'interno di un'organizzazione esperta, come una società professionale o un'istituzione culturale, il project manager può utilizzare questo strumento per generare rapporti di tipo comparabile agli altri rapporti sull'impatto dal proprio sito Web e canali di social media.

What are the different program types for?

There are three types of programs available on Programs & Events Dashboard:

Generic Course

This is the default program type. It will keep track of edits to any mainspace pages made by the participating editors between the start and end dates, on each of the program's tracked wikis. It will also create and update an on-wiki program page (like this) if the home wiki has been set up for automated edits. By default, edits to any article on the tracked wikis will be counted, but program organizers can filter out specific articles using the *untrack* feature on the Articles Edited view.

Edit-a-thon

This program type works the same way as a Generic Course, except that no on-wiki program page will be created unless it is explicitly enabled.

Article Scoped Program

This program type limits the statistics to specific articles and collections of articles. Only edits to articles that are assigned for the program, or articles in categories listed on the Assigned Articles view, will be counted. Participants can assign themselves the article(s) they want to track, and program organizers can add articles by title or add collections of articles based on on-wiki Categories, templates (including Talk: templates), PetScan queries, or PagePile collections.

Basic technical support

How do I start using this tool?

The use of the tool starts when someone creates a program. Anyone with a Wikimedia account can do this.

How do I join an existing program?

Typically users join a program when the program coordinator provides them with a link to join the group. To join the group, they must log in to their own Wikimedia account, visit the program page, then click to join the program.

Further instructions are at Programs & Events Dashboard/how to sign up to an existing program.

How can an organizer add participants to a program?

Typically participants will voluntarily join a program themselves by following a link with password provided by the event organizer. However, organizers can manually add participants if they have their Wikimedia account names by following these steps:

  1. Go to the program in the dashboard
  2. Choose the "editors" tab at the top
  3. Choose the "participation" button on the editors page
  4. This presents a window with options either to add single editors or a group of editors

How can an organizer remove participants from a program?

Participants can only be removed by an organizer and cannot remove themselves.

Typically participants will voluntarily join a program themselves by following a link with password provided by the event organizer. However, organizers can manually add participants if they have their Wikimedia account names by following these steps:

  1. Go to the program in the dashboard
  2. Choose the "editors" tab at the top
  3. Choose the "participation" button on the editors page
  4. This presents a window with a list of all program participants. Clicking the minus sign near any name will remove that user from the program.

How do I manage privacy for my group?

By default all public information tracked by the dashboard remains public for anyone to see.

The facilitators for a program can change this by setting the program to Private, in the Edit Details section. Only admins and the program's facilitators can view a private program, and the editors to track must be added by a facilitator.

How do I combine the reports of multiple programs?

When one organization manages multiple programs, that organization may wish to access both individual program pages and a combined report for all of their activities.

A group of programs is called a "campaign". In the dashboard, start a campaign, then add multiple programs to it.

How does the date range work?

The date function for programs is not stable and may change.

At its creation, the dashboard was imagined to work by inviting individuals to join a group to collaborate for a period of perhaps weeks, then disband. At setup, the dashboard asks the program coordinator to identify the day when it should begin and end tracking, and presumes that whatever users do in that time is part of the group project. Users may only join a group during the period of the program.

However, the tool does not do live updates, and instead updates its reports periodically based on public archived information. For this reason, the tool can be predated, and the tool can retroactively note contributions by group members who participated in the project but joined late. Consider this example -

  • A program runs for 8 weeks. The team which is supposed to be a group all starts contributing to Wikimedia projects at the same time. However, 4 weeks into the project, it is noticed that one person on the team mistakenly did not join the group in the dashboard. If that person joins 4 weeks late, then the dashboard still notes that the project started 4 weeks earlier, and will retroactively list and note all of that late person's contributions as if they had registered on the first day with everyone else.

How does one export the data from the report?

For an individual program, click Download stats in the Actions section of the program Home tab. This will provide CSV data about the program, individual edits, articles, editors (including 7-day retention of new users), and Commons uploads.

For a campaign, similar aggregate stats can be downloaded as CSV files from the Campaigns list.

Is it possible to track a set of Wikimedia items without having program participants?

The dashboard provides amazing information about sets of Wikimedia items. In the field of contemporary social media tracking, many professionals are focused on tracking the audience response to digital media and almost disinterested in tracking the way in which the digital media was created. For that reason, some users may wonder if it is possible to get a dashboard report for a set of Wikimedia content without having a program or users.

At this time, there is no way to direct the dashboard to provide reports on an arbitrary list of items. The dashboard only gets its tracking list from what members in a program have edited. There is no way to provide a content tracking list to the dashboard.

How do I delete my program?

To delete your program, you must first remove it from any campaigns. On your program's home page, in the Details box, click "Edit Details." Then look at the Campaigns section and click the (+) button. This brings up a dialogue window where you can click (-) to remove any campaigns. (You may notice that your program is automatically added to a "Miscellanea" campaign even if you didn't add it to a specific campaign before.)

Once your program has been removed from any campaigns you can click on the "Delete course" button on the bottom right of the home page.

If the "Delete" button is grayed out, you should double check to make sure you have removed any campaigns from your program/course!
