Responsive views usability test next Friday

Updated 12/16/2013: Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in participating! As of this morning, all 4 slots are filled up!

Though we’re definitely getting into the holiday spirit around here and starting to wind down for the year, we’ve got one more goodie for your Christmas stocking: a usability test focused on The Events Calendar’s new responsive functionality! We’re seeking participants who’d be game to take a look at what we’ve got so far on responsiveness and provide some feedback regarding what they like, what they don’t and whether it’d be of value to them/their clients.

This will be the first ever opportunity for hands-on experience with the responsiveness feature! Everyone who has QA’d it so far has been part of the core team, and we’re stoked to get some outsider eyes on it. Plus — as an added bonus — all participants will be rewarded with a free license to whatever plugin they’d like as our way of saying, “thanks for participating.”

If you’re game to help, read on.


The usability test will take place Friday, December 20 from 9 am – 1 pm PT, and will involve 4 60-minute sessions:

  • 9-10 am PT
  • 10-11 am PT
  • 11 am – 12 pm PT
  • 12-1 pm PT

Please note that while the 9-10 am and 10-11 am slots are already spoken for, as of this writing the two others are up for grabs. Sorry, but all slots are booked as of Monday 12/16.


As with any of our usability tests, we do have some base requirements that will ensure the process runs smoothly for everyone. Please do not request to be involved in this usability test if you do not met all of the following criteria:

  • A strong command of the English language
  • A fast, reliable Internet connection in a quiet place (ie, not a coffee shop!)
  • Access to Skype and JoinMe

If you’re interested in participating please either shoot us an email or reach out on Twitter. Once we’ve got all four slots nailed down, we’ll send around a summary/overview email to the confirmed participants with details regarding exactly how it will flow and providing high level guidance on things to keep in mind.
