Working a lot with the KOBO platform we thought about an improvement : inform users of the tool’s behaviours through interface signposts more.
We list some examples, but for a lot features it could be relevant
- when redeploying a project, tell users what will happen with their previous data if they do not clone the project,
- explain what sharing the projects with developers is for,
- say when you want to share a project with collaborators that they need to write the full user name for it to be recognised,
- explain why you want such detailed metadata information when a user creates a project/account now (ie asking for gender/age when creating account we find it inappropriate…)
We are using KOBO Humanitarian response
Increase informations will make KOBO more user friendly. Also it could avoid a lot of mistakes (as for redploying).
Thanks to think about it
