I see. So more generative research than evaluative research. That's great! I think it's good to do more generative research at the beginning especially, when still looking for product-market fit. Some questions could be:
Remember to ask for their direct experiences, not opinions.
Thanks @jasonleow , these questions are gold!
We will make sure of asking them on the interviews 😄
Maybe firstly could be to try to define your objectives for the interviews, as time with them is pretty short. To test the UI for usability issues? Or to understand their broader needs/painpoints to find opportunities for features? Because the questions and activities are different
Hey @jasonleow, thanks for that one. I think the main objective for now would be the second one, "to understand their broader needs/painpoints to find opportunities for features".
For now we ask something like "How would you achieve X" and see how they use the platform and work on top of that.
However, there are probably better questions to ask and flows 🤔
Could you suggest me some? 😄
A simpler version could be simply being able to toggle public vs private to-dos. Public view setting by default, but if someone wants to hide specific to-dos, they can. No 100% private to-dos since that defeats the purpose of being in WIP.
An expansion could be the same settings but for entire projects (great if a project is still in early days stealth)
Nice yes I'm adding private projects right now 👍 (activity will only be visible to signed in members)
I run a streak-based community too (but for daily writing), so just to share my experience:
I'm aware of the pitfalls of the conventional, consecutive day streak, so for Lifelog I created different types of streaks each with their own leaderboards (golifelog.com/community) so that everyone can grow in one metric of their liking.
Maybe for WIP, could consider Most streaks model alongside top streak model? That way even if one breaks the streak, there's a number that still grows.
