My idea is: To improve the UI of the contact area when filtering, removing the need for complicated expressions to be used and replacing with a more simple interface. In the process allowing the mass tagging of users based on certain searches (in the way that intercom.io does)
I think these groups of people would benefit from this idea: All users especially those without major techncial expertise (expressions can get complicated!)
Why I think they would benefit from this idea: It will save a lot of time in the UI, and help marketeers using Mautic who dont want to mess around with expressions to do basic filtering. It’ll help people (eg like me!) who want to filter contacts and mass apply tags to users without using code.
Any code or resources to support this idea: The best examples of this are found on intercom.io (we recently transitioned over from intercom to mautic and I LOVE the way they handle this). You can see below a couple of example screenshots that include:
Easy logic to allow users to filter their contacts without having to look up complicated expressions or write pseudocode.
Easy ability when a search filter is applied to simply tag all the selected users. This is missing and a much needed feature to those using tags heavily (a lot of people I would think)
Are you willing to work on this idea?: From a feature/testing point of view yes (not a developer myself) and also depending on how quickly someone could jump onto this I could be open to funding a project also via my company.
What skills and resources do you need to explore this further?
- A UI person to do a basic layout (though intercom does it excellently so why re-invent the wheel)
- A developer to implement the changes
