We are planning to run a usability study with 12 participants on Drupal 8 based on the issue #787896 Add a link so that administrators can return to their most recently visited non-admin page. The Drupal 8 will be a default installation, with the addition of the patch posted in comment #64, and some basic content to give the participant something to work with.
In particular, we want to learn from three types of people (content editors that use Overlay, site builders that use Overlay, content creators without Drupal experience):
- What do users think "Back to site" will do when pressed?
- How well do users interact with the 'Back to site button?'
- Do they know where they are when the move between node, admin pages, and then back to previous location?
- Any issues with placement interfering with their normal tasks?
- Do they miss the presence of overlay? Do they even notice it's gone?
- And do they find it easy to follow the difference between administering the site and browsing the site without it?
(comments are enabled; include your username on your comment please)
Before doing the testing, we like to post these plans on the groups.drupal.org/usability for further feedback. We will review the draft on the received feedback for 1 week, and then begin scheduling the sessions.
We need participants and moderators!
- We need help recruiting people who fit into one of the 3 types of people. Do you know content editors? Please send them to our recruitment form.
- We need at least 1 person to attend each session to observe, take notes, and debrief afterwards. (training will be provided)
- If you are an experienced moderator, you could run sessions and I'll observe and take notes
People you know that would qualify, content editors/site builders (not core/contrib developers).
