New Visual Dashboard follow-up : Community Leaderboard and Daily Stats per topic are back!

Last week, we introduced the new visual dashboard which was a big change for Scoop.it. We’ve already seen positive impact in our analytics but, more importantly, we’re very excited and pleased by your reactions. You called the new dashboard a “very nice presentation“, “an amazing change, visually engaging” and were many to thank us on our blog, on Google+, on our Facebook page on Twitter:

Getting feedback like this is the best fuel to our team’s motivation so thanks a million for expressing it so much!

We also had a couple of problems that we fixed earlier this morning:

- With the new visual dashboard, we removed access to the personnal leaderboard which allows you to compare yourself against other curators in your community. Clearly, it was not a good move as many of you guys said they loved it and used it every day (or even several times a day!) to track how they were doing. That was a mistake and we’re putting it back today: you can reach it by clicking ‘Me and My Community‘ below your stats on your profile.

- Another thing we overlooked is that the old dashboard gave an instant look at your daily stats per topic. As some of you pointed out, this was very useful to get a quick feedback on how you were doing accross multiple topics. We’re also putting this back : just a click on your profile will give you this instant feedback in a glimpse.









Again, it’s been great to hear you on this: in spite of all the testing and the listening we can do ahead of releasing a major update, we will always overlook some points, miss some others and never be 100% sure that the changes are working. Though Scoop.it has grown a lot, our team remained pretty much the same size (hint: we’re hiring !) but we’re committed to keep innovating. And innovation is about not being afraid of breaking things and iterating fast based on feedback. This is why it’s been great to see the Scoop.it community so much alive these past few days: be it through critics, suggestions or praise. We all felt this was an important step for us and that our users felt it this way too.
As we’re showing with these adjustments, we’ll always be committed to be reacting fast to your precious feedback. Keep it coming!

    Excellent, I haven’t checked it out yet but I am enthusiastic to hear these news. Thank you for taking my feedback and the one of others on this front.

    I remain particularly curious in understanding if there was a direct correlation for the very significant drop in views that the top 5-6 curators saw during this past week. Anyone has further data or comments on this?

      Thanks for the comment, Robin. Glad to hear your enthusiasm! 

      Can you give us some detail on the views drop? We haven’t seen that in our data. It shouldn’t happen as nothing in the release should affect that but of course there can be a bug. Do you mean your total view count dropped? Or that you’re adding views at a slower rate?

    No, I am not referring to “my” views. I am referring to the daily stats for the top 5-6 curators. In the last week or more, they have all dropped very significantly. Look at the stats for Ana Cristina Pratas for example. Or at those of those others on top. Did they all go on vacation at the same time? :-)

    Look forward to your feedback.

    • http://scoop.it Guillaume Decugis

      Ah ok. Understand the point. Hard to say specifically but in her case, I see no posts between July 4 and July 15 so yes, might have been vacation. We’ll continue to monitor that of course but we didn’t see any bugs that would impact that for now.
