Hi Tim - > But it seems like that the process of creating task-set is not intuitive > enough.
I agree it could be better. One of the possibilities we have considered is recording the user's actions and then suggesting that they make a task set out of their actions (which is why your source code could be useful). At present, the process of making a task set is fairly similar to customizing other interfaces, so we hope it won't be too difficult for motivated users to create task sets right now. But there is always room for improvement. > Also, do users have to manually capture/upload the snapshot of their task-set > or your system will automatically capture it? All task sets are automatically uploaded and shared with the community once you save it. A wiki page is also automatically created to document it. So it's very low effort to share customizations. > The better way to do so is perhaps like Grabler's automatic tutorial > generation work at SIGGRAPH 2009? > > http://vis.berkeley.edu/papers/tutgen/ It would be cool to join our technology with this other work (incidentally, they cite our work in that paper :). I think the main thing that differentiates us from prior work is this notion of automatically sharing customizations with the rest of the user community. Right now, there are plenty of tutorials on the web that show how to perform a specific task; our system allows you to create a tutorial *and* have the interface automatically customized for that tutorial/task. In that respect, it complements these other technologies. Research-wise, we're really interested in what happens when you make it no effort at all to share your workflows with others. From our own lab tests, users are enthused about the functionality. Now we're curious about how the larger community uses it. > About my work, yes, I will share the source code and Cool, we're looking forward to it :) > @Michael Terry, Please accept my apology of mentioning my project in the > thread, it seems to distract others' focus from your work. No need to apologize -- it's great to learn about your work!
