Survey Tool stages


Data collection in the Survey tool has 4 stages:

Full vs. Limited Submission 

There are two types of releases: full, and limited-submission.

Survey Tool phase: Shakedown

Make sure your coverage level is set correctly at the top of the page.

Shakedown is on an invitation basis. If you have not received an invitation to participate in shakedown, your participation is discouraged.

Survey Tool phase: General Submission

Make sure your coverage level is set correctly at the top of the page.

For new locales or ones where the goal is to increase the level, it is best to proceed page-by-page starting with the Core Data section. At the top of each page you can see the number of items open on the page. Then scan down the page to see all the places where you need to vote (including adding items). Some

* Note that if the committee finds systematic errors in data, new tests can be added during the submission period, resulting in new Errors.

† Among the Missing are are new items for translation. (On the Dashboard, New means winning values that have changed since the last release.)

If you are working in a sub-locales (such as fr_CA), coordinate with others on the Forum to work on each section after it is are done in the main locale (fr). That way you avoid additional work and gratuitous differences. See voting for inheritance vs. hard votes in Survey Tool guide. 

Survey Tool phase: Vetting

All contributors are encourage to move their focus to the Dashboard view. Also see Dashboard tips to use during Vetting stage.

To see the Flagged items, click on the Menu icon in the upper left corner, under the Forum header see Flagged items:

Resolution (Closed to vetters)
