Wikimedia Apps/Team/iOS/User feedback review SOP

Standard Operating Procedure for Gathering User Feedback aka Chore WheelEdit

Each person is assigned one week for "chore wheel." Your week includes the Saturday and Sunday preceding your assignment. For example:

Your week is December 14. That means you cover the days from Saturday December 8 through Friday December 14.

Note: the calendar invite for your assignment can be moved to any day/time in your week that is useful to you. Just have things done by Friday of your week.

    • Look for any reports/screenshot from the period of your chore wheel duty (ie, generally 7 days ago or newer)
    • Please do not re-report issues from older times, chances are they are either covered or no longer relevant
    • If filing phab tickets please include the screenshots and device info provided by Apple in the phab ticket (please don't just link the the report, include the key info in phab itself)
  • CRASHES: Review iTC for any major new or big increases in crashes -

    • We are committed to allowing everyone, everywhere to freely access, share, and participate in knowledge on Wikipedia. Unfortunately, Wikipedia is currently blocked by most internet service providers in [China/Turkey]. We are not able to ensure access to Wikipedia until the block is lifted.
