What’s up with SUMO – April 2022

Hi everybody,

April is a transition month, with the season starting to change from winter to spring, and a new quarter is beginning to unfold. A lot to plan, but it also means a lot of things to be excited about. With that spirit, let’s see what the Mozilla Support community has been up to these days:

Welcome note and shout-outs

If you know anyone that we should feature here, please contact Kiki and we’ll make sure to add them in our next edition.

Community news

  • The result of the Mozilla Support Contributor Survey 2022 is out. You can check the summary and recommendations from this deck.
  • The TCP/ETP project has been running so well. The KB changes are on the way, and we finished the forum segmentation and found 2 TCP-related bugs. The final report of the project is underway.
  • We’re one version away from Firefox 100. Check out what to expect in Firefox 100!
  • For those of you who experience problems with media upload in SUMO, check out this contributor thread to learn more about the issue.
  • Mozilla Connect was officially soft-launched recently. Check out the Connect Campaign and learn more about how to get involved!
  • The buddy forum is now archived and replaced with the contributor introduction forum. However, due to a permission issue, we’re hiding the new introduction forum at the moment until we figure out the problem.
  • Previously, I mentioned that we’re hoping to finish the onboarding project implementation by the end of Q1. But we should expect a delay for this project as our platform team is stretched tight at the moment.

Catch up

  • Watch the monthly community call if you haven’t. Learn more about what’s new in February and Marchs! Reminder: Don’t hesitate to join the call in person if you can. We try our best to provide a safe space for everyone to contribute. You’re more than welcome to lurk in the call if you don’t feel comfortable turning on your video or speaking up. If you feel shy to ask questions during the meeting, feel free to add your questions on the contributor forum in advance, or put them in our Matrix channel, so we can answer them during the meeting.
  • If you’re an NDA’ed contributor, you can watch the recording of the Customer Experience weekly scrum meeting from AirMozilla to catch up with the latest product updates.
  • Check out SUMO Engineering Board to see what the platform team is currently doing.
