6 -Here is a summary of what people said about making XWiki Enterprise easier to use.

9 -Work in Progress
10 -{{/warning}}
11 -
12 -== User Interface ==
13 -
14 -=== Dashboard ===
15 -
16 -==== Spaces ====
17 -
18 -* Give more information about each space
19 -* Use the title of the space's homepage as a title for the whole space
20 -* Create space descriptors?
21 -
22 -==== Recent Changes ====
23 -
24 -* There should be no changes displayed when starting a new wiki
25 -* Since a new wiki has had no activity going on, why are some modifications displayed?
26 -* System page modifications should be hidden for normal users
27 -
28 -==== Tag Cloud ====
29 -
30 -* The tag cloud is hidden at the bottom of the list of spaces and hard to see
31 -
32 -=== Page Actions ===
33 -
34 -We should have only information available from the view mode, not stuff scattered all around the place, the user should be able to see 3 main things:
35 -
36 -* where am I?
37 -* what am I doing?
38 -* what can I do?
39 -
40 -Things should be easily answered by looking at the page. Right now we do not have a functional model that encompasses all this.
41 -
42 -==== Action bar ====
43 -
44 -* move the action bar (edit, show, watch...) closer to page content
45 -* shortcuts should be described in the action menu
46 -* use icons in the action bar to make it easier to understand
47 -* splitting the action bar between local and global actions and create 2 menus
48 -** global one -> administration, create new content, manage watchlist
49 -** page menu -> actions related to the current page
50 -
51 -==== Logged-in / Logged-out ====
52 -
53 -* When not logged-in -> edit action is hidden
54 -** display the edit action as disabled to let people know it's a wiki
55 -** on a public website you don't want to see the action bar for guests anyway
56 -
57 -==== Page creation ====
58 -
59 -* streamline the link creation process -> make it faster, more simple
60 -** make document information more visible
61 -* page creation panel on the right side that isn't good
62 -** when in the blog interface, it duplicates the creation panel (context issue)
63 -** should be a button
64 -** where is the page created? which other pages is the created page related to?
65 -** all create actions made contextual to the wiki (from treeview, from wikilinks)
66 -* add tags, categories when creating a page
67 -
68 -=== Titles ===
69 -
70 -* page title issue -> name vs title, it's confusing
71 -* use document titles instead of page names as much as possible
72 -** uniform name management when creating new pages
73 -
74 -=== Avatars ===
75 -
76 -* comments lack the user avatar
77 -* make user avatars easy to use (macro)
78 -
79 -=== Other ===
80 -
81 -* too much information in search results, in the dashboard -> when you open it for the first time there's a lot of information but the user doesn't know where it comes from
82 -* create panel should be improved -> create space is in the wrong place
83 -* treeview navigation is confusing, it's hard to understand its logic right now
84 -* information about comments, attachments, history to put at the top of the page? -> nobody sees them
85 -
86 -=== Consistency ===
87 -
88 -* same skin for the administration as for everything else
89 -* unify the looks of the edit and view mode
90 -** in-place editing
91 -** same place, same configuration, nothing different but the edit
92 -
93 -== Configuration & Administration ==
94 -
95 -=== Configuration ===
96 -
97 -* first interaction -> first thing the user sees when the homepage is displayed -> display additional information for the first time -> steps you have to do to configure your wiki. Basic steps required to make your wiki work. Popup?
98 -* hidden pages / spaces -> all pages in the space are hidden = hidden space?
99 -
100 -=== Administration ===
101 -
102 -* New spaces appear once I've logged in as an Admin. Why?
103 -* Create accounts for new users -> I don't really know where to go.
104 -* What is the order of icons in the administration? Why is it like that?
105 -** Explanatations for each item in administration (captions, tooltips)
106 -** Why OpenOffice? What is it doing here? It's an option.
107 -** Registration is confusing
108 -* Administration: drop-down & "Show available categories" button put together. Why is that so?
109 -** The drop-down menu isn't self-explanatory, it doesn't tell anything about itself
110 -** "Add new user" should be at the top of the page
111 -** Clicking on "Create new user" launches a popup -> various interaction styles
112 -*** what's mandatory, what's optional?
113 -*** no error messages, information gets lost
114 -*** email field not used by default
115 -*** automatically generate a password for the user (-> invitation manager)
116 -*** configuring registration options / process in XWiki in complicated
117 -*** **email addresses are hidden in the user profile**
118 -*** user profile -> actions are not in the right place
119 -** put user into a group
120 -*** group names suck, system groups are not identified as such
121 -*** edit button -> what am I editing, group name of group members? Right now renaming a group will break configured rights
122 -*** on a group page -> "add user to group" button
123 -*** local & global users -> what does that mean on a standard XE instance?
124 -** configuring rights
125 -*** rights inheritance
126 -*** it's dangerous to change XWikiAllGroup and XWikiAdminGroup rights yet it can be done easily
127 -*** the deny warning is painful
128 -*** select the rights you want and then apply them -> make the rights transactional (button to save)
129 -*** revert rights to the default setting button
130 -*** describe every right and explain how to set them
131 -* sometimes configuration cannot be achieved but through objects -> an interface should always be available to make this explicit
132 -** hide technical pages even from admin, the admin shouldn't see everything -> like in windows, let people see / hide hidden documents
133 -
134 -== Help ==
135 -
136 -* Add an "Help" panel between Search and Quick Links
137 -* Make the link to the user guide more obvious
138 -* Contextual help
139 -* Make the help more obvious
140 -** when there's only one user in the wiki, display all the help, message disappears once another user has been created
141 -* make the user guide easier to find, it cannot be found easily right now
142 -
143 -== Language ==
144 -
145 -* Create language-specific distribution
146 -** Select the language from the installer
147 -** Choose the language of your wiki from the installer
148 -* translations are painful and confusing to setup -> hard to find, hard to set, translations don't appear in all pages at once, when on a given page it's hard to know in which languages it has been translated.
149 -** lack of feedback when setting up translations
