Cross-Project Cohorts

If you wish to search for cohort activity on multiple Wikimedia projects you may specify different projects for each username in your cohort.


Append project names to each username or id in your cohort upload list and list each username and project on a different line of text such as:

username X, enwiki
username X, commons
username X, dewiki
username Y, dewiki
username Z, commons


Append multiple project names to a single username such as:

username X, enwiki, commons, dewiki

Importantly, for any username or id for which no project name is specified, such as:

username X, commons
username X
username Y, dewiki
username Z, commons

The query will default to searching for activity on the selected "Default Project".
