Re: [libreoffice-design] Tasks for UX testing?

Sounds awesome. Will it be possible to get video footage of users? (Two notes:
please get some data on the users (age, sex, computer usage habits) +
make sure users explain what they are doing and thinking all the time.)

Some ideas ...
* Start center:
* On a fresh installation, ask if they are confused by the whitespace on the
right side
* Ask users what they would expect behind the Extensions button
(before clicking it of course)(see also bug 75563) (Do users understand what
extensions are?)
* Ask users to create a new spreadsheet, a new presentation

* Writer: styles:
* Ask users if they understand what a style is (and if they're using the
functionality)
* Ask users to write two paragraphs of random text
* Ask users to create a paragraph and a character style
* Ask users to apply these styles to one of the paragraphs
* Ask users to reset styles

* Writer: auto-generated tables:
* Ask users to create a document with headings etc. (or maybe provide one,
to make it quicker)
* Ask users to create a table of contents
* Ask users to change a heading and make sure the table is in sync

* Writer: page number:
* Ask users to insert a page number in the format "Page n of m" into the
footer of a document

* Writer: Working with templates
-- though I am not sure if the template manager is in good enough shape for
this (there are very obvious pain points), so no proposal what to do here
yet.

* Calc: conditional formatting:
* Have they ever used it? Do they understand what it is?
* Apply a colour bar to a range of cells
* etc.

Hm... too many Writer proposals. Anything useful among these?
