Based on the availability submitted so far, I have selected Wednesday, 27th November at 0900hrs London time (see in your timezone here)

Hi @rcheesley

My Motivation:
I think documentation is horrible right now…
Especially for beginners and as it seems for established users too the concept of mautic functionality is a “black box mystery”.
Documentation must give an overview and explain the concepts and principles in a way a new user can get up and running fast.

I also see many possibilities to improve mautic functionality from the users perspective and from the marketers view.

My insights:
New users
Business owners considering Mautic

My skills
Trainer
Marketer
Video producer
Content creator
Documentation writer (German)
Translation (German)

The only problem could be time :wink:

I will atttend tomorrow to see what can be done.

Great insights and motivations, look forward to talking further tomorrow!

Sorry folks I realised this clashes with the community call, so will need to push it back by an hour to 10am instead of 9. I’ll update the post accordingly!

Thanks to everybody who joined the meeting! Here’s the notes, and the recording if you want to catch up: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Cdnyz7yHNQOjAqnxX0xNNNEU0p_8q2om?usp=sharing
