I believe that Maputnik needs more contact with its users.
To bring us, the makers of Maputnik, together with the users.
You can fill it out and submit it, it’s just a prototype. I’ll remove the test responses.
How I want to promote the survey
How I want to promote the survey inside Maputnik
The text from the modal window:
What I need from you
It would be nice to see some answers to the following questions (you don’t have to answer all of them):
a) Do you think any of the questions are unnecessary?
b) Are there some questions I should add?
c) Do the words I chose work?
d) Do you want to know anything more about Maputnik users?
e) Do you think the method I’ve proposed for promoting the survey in Maputnik is both visible and non–invasive?*
* The modal window for the survey will appear to users only once.
Really nice survey @gregorywolanski
Answers to the questions
I'm unsure if this should be a new question or a modification of 'What do you use Maputnik for?'. What I'd like to find out it whether people use Maputnik for
I just wonder if 'What do you use Maputnik for?' people are going to answer 'style maps' and it there is a way we can lead them into answering more specifically.
It is a little unclear what we're asking for here. Do we want to know what the participant has heard of or which ones they use? Maybe it should be either 'What Maputnik alternatives do you know of?' or 'What Maputnik alternatives do you use?', or maybe both, thoughts?
Just what's outlined in
Yup I'm happy with the proposed promotion.
Thank you, @orangemug! :)
I read you. I believe we will be able to read it from the answers for the “What do you use Maputnik for?” question.
I could add your questions as a description to the “What do you use Maputnik for?” question, but I’m afraid that it could make the quality of the answers for this open question worse (directed, biased). What do you think?
At this point, I want to know what the participant has heard of.
“What Maputnik alternatives do you know of?” might be better here, but I’m not a native speaker to assess. :)
Good point. It was a minor thing anyway, I'm happy if you're happy :)
The question updated in the prototype. :)
Thanks for your feedback!
Thanks, @muesliq! :) I’m super excited that you joined the discussion! :D
Could you please write more about your motivation for adding this question? Is this your case? Do you know someone in this scenario?
In my experience this question is the one most valuable question (no matter which product) when collecting feedback. Asking "What features would you like to have" will get people creative and they will tell you their ideas, regardless if those features will really matter to them. But finding out what (almost) kept somebody from using/buying your product will get you feedback that matters.
Our customers can choose between Maputnik and our own, self-made code-based editor. I prefer the latter but that's more of a power-user option. What personally keeps me from using Maputnik is: Too much GUI ;-) But I appreciate Maputnik for that very reason as an option for less code-savvy customers of ours.
Almost every user will have something to say when you ask them what nearly kept them from using your product. ;-)
