Originally split from this discussion: Exploring our repair data - what do you want to know?
One barrier is that the party kit downloads are a little confusing - I want to propose a bit of focus on some key aims of the party kit, and how well the current content - three downloads plus an ‘all in one’ download - can be improved.
My proposition is that one of the key aims of the party download (singular, even if the zip has plenty of different parts in that single download) should be to do the maximum to encourage and enthuse repair event organisers to promote and contribute to Restart, by making the content directly valuable to them.
I have one specific example of an aspect that I feel could be improved: the fixometer takes specific fields like brand/model/age - and the party download could include a ready-made a template for the customer-registration document that includes these fields, and could include a template spreadsheet that will then make it much simpler for post-event data upload. Can we give new organisers a sample document with empty spaces for the group name but pre-populated with the fields the fixometer wants?
I can see that the party kit is currently a lot about branding, but if we can make the branding unobtrusively integral to the kit and it offers value by relieving new organisers of the need to create so much stuff themselves - that will help encourage them to use it.
Does that make sense?
