Vincent Massol 1.1 1 The purpose of this page is to brainstorm and list ideas about how to increase our [[Active Installs>>doc:xwiki:ActiveInstalls.WebHome]] numbers.
3 Increasing Active Installs can be done in 2 complementary ways:
5 * Attract more users to XWiki
6 * Keep them using XWiki more
8 The idea is to see if there are some low hanging fruits and implement them.
10 = Attracting more users =

30 = Keeping users =
32 Reasons for leaving:
Vincent Massol 8.1 34 * Fail to install XWiki
Vincent Massol 10.1 35 * Generally too complex to use / Frustration
Vincent Massol 1.1 36 * Doesn't understand how to use in the first 10mn
Vincent Massol 15.1 37 * User don't see all the nice things they can do with their wiki and stop for lack of knowing this
Vincent Massol 4.1 38 * Doesn't see the value of the features and what they can be used for
Vincent Massol 1.1 39 * Missing some key feature. Which one?
40 * Competition is better. Which one?
Vincent Massol 14.1 41 * Too hard to upgrade? (Hopefully not, we've worked hard to make this one no longer be the case)

Vincent Massol 2.1 43 |=Idea|=From|=What does it fix?|=Complexity & Cost
Vincent Massol 11.1 44 |Provide a Feedback Panel by default in XS. Something similar to what we get in [[survey forms>>xwiki:Main.Feedback.DownloadFormFeedback]] Feedback would be aggregated on xwiki.org automatically.|Vincent|Understand frustration/problems|Medium
Vincent Massol 9.1 45 |Make XWiki work on Java9+|Vincent|Fail to install XWiki|Medium
Vincent Massol 8.1 46 |Promote more the cloud options instead of the download option (higher success rate). Maybe have a single "download" get on xwiki.org and ask if the user is technical or not and if not, promote the XWiki SAS cloud option|Vincent|Fail to install XWiki|Easy
Vincent Massol 16.1 47 |Promote less the manual WAR install and instead promote more the Debian and Docker installs for installation on premises since they're easier to use and avoid mistakes|Vincent|Fail to install XWiki|Easy
Vincent Massol 4.1 48 |In the Support panel, have a chat and allow Admin users to ask questions on this chat (possibly during the 1st week of usage to reduce support cost; after that time it could become a link to the chat page of xwiki.org, to reduce ). This chat would integrate the XWiki Matrix/IRC chat|Vincent|Generally too complex to use & Doesn't understand how to use in the first 10mn|Easy
49 |Provide some demo content by default in XWiki Standard to see the usage in action, with ability to remove content easily when user is ready to use it for real.|Vincent|Doesn't see the value of the features and what they can be used for|Easy
Vincent Massol 15.1 50 |Provide several Flavors for several needs|Vincent|Users may not know what to do with their wiki and how to start|Hard
