The Wikimedia Community Tech team is in the final stretch of their Community Wishlist 2017 work and recently announced the beta launch of the 'Event Metrics' project they worked on for the #3 wish. Since the initial proposal  was to improve Wiki Education's program organizing and metrics tool Programs & Events Dashboard , we've heard from a lot of people worried that Event Metrics  is supposed to be a replacement for the Dashboard or that the Dashboard is going away.
To clear up any potential confusion: Wiki Education will keep supporting Programs & Events Dashboard as part of our commitment to making our technology work as useful as possible to the rest of the Wikimedia movement. Our newly-expanded Technology department, along with many awesome volunteers and interns, is more committed than ever to improving the Dashboard as tool for global programs, because it's been so essential for many of you. Programs & Events Dashboard recently passed the milestone of 4,000 programs, from more than 100 different wikis, and more than 28,000 editors have logged in . For those who haven't used it before, or haven't done so in a while, some of the useful features include: * Account registration for in-person edit-a-thons — to avoid getting stopped by the IP limit for new accounts * Automatically updated metrics for articles edited, number of edits, Commons uploads, etc.  * Additional downloadable metrics, including 7-day retention of new editors, the complete list of edits made * For English and Portuguese Wikipedia, tools for monitoring which articles are involved in deletion processes  * Translatable, wiki-editable training modules for newcomers  * For all the languages with ORES "article quality" models, extra data and visualizations based on ORES estimates We have some additional features planned for the near future as well: * Metrics for number of citations added * Wikidata metrics for claims created and references added If you have feature requests or complaints, please do let us know either on the Meta talk page  or by opening an issue on GitHub . Our team is small, so we rely heavily on the feedback we get from Programs & Events Dashboard users to identify problems and make improvements. -Sage Ross Wiki Education ----  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey_2017/Programs_and_events/Development_of_the_programs_and_events_dashboard  https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/  https://eventmetrics.wmflabs.org/  https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/usage  https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/courses/Wikimedia_ZA/Wiki_Loves_Africa_2019_South_Africa/home  https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/campaigns/artfeminism_2019/alerts  https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/training/editing-wikipedia/editing-basics/welcome-new-editor  https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Programs_%26_Events_Dashboard  https://github.com/WikiEducationFoundation/WikiEduDashboard/issues/new/choose _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
