Programs & Events Dashboard/Admins

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.

  • How long have you been on Wikipedia, and what areas are you active in?

I've been an employee of Wikimedia Sverige since January 2020. I work as a project leader for education and learning projects, but also in association involvement. (I have had my private Wikipedia account for quite a few years more than that).

  • What languages are you comfortable communicating in? Are you active on any non-English Wikipedias or other Wikimedia projects?

I'm comfortable in communicating in Swedish and English. My primary project is sv.wikipedia.org and I'm also active on Wikidata and Commons, as well as a little bit on en.wikipedia.org.

  • Why do you want to be an Admin of the Dashboard?

We use the Dashboard quite a lot in Wikimedia Sverige. When employees quit and the activities continue, it would be very convenient to be able to assign new employees and project leaders to the old projects, also for the possibility of cloning old projects. I would fill that kind of position within the association.

  • What experience do you have as a user of the Dashboard?

I have used the Dashboard in a handful of projects, including creating new programs. I am also working on translating the training modules into Swedish in order for us to use the online training even more.

  • How long have you been on Wikipedia, and what areas are you active in?

I've been on Wikipedia since 2016. I'm primarily active on English Wikipedia.

  • What languages are you comfortable communicating in? Are you active on any non-English Wikipedias or other Wikimedia projects?

I'm comfortable communicating in French and Spanish. I'm not currently active on any other non-English Wikipedias.

  • Why do you want to be an Admin of the Dashboard?

I'm the Director of ART+FEMINISM. The Dashboard is critical to our managing and organizing event data from edit-a-thons that take place on all 6 inhabitable continents each year.

  • What experience do you have as a user of the Dashboard?

For two years, I've led digital workshops for organizers and new editors using the Dashboard for the first time. In my role, I also lend myself to acting as technical support time during the high traffic season of our campaign.

@McKensie Mack: You should have received an email from me asking for further information so you could sign the NDA - did you not get it? Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 10:16, 20 December 2018 (UTC)
