How to contribute
This contribution activity can be carried out on your own or with friends/your community. Why not try them all?
From hardcore web developers to first time users, everyone needs your help in the forum! Share your knowledge on everything from “how do I install Firefox” to complex coding issues by pointing people to the right help articles and providing troubleshooting steps for their specific questions.
Here are a few activities to get you started:
- [Forum] Get to know the tool (level: easy)
- This activity focuses on training on how to use SUMO to answer forum questions from users. This includes how to find questions, how to find answer and do an investigation, how to reply to them, or how to do find help if you’re stuck. There are also common responses if you need inspiration on how to reply to a common issue.
- [Forum] Answering questions (level: medium)
- This activity focuses on reducing our backlog in the forum. You can choose what product you would like to work on. There’s also a progress bar in each product so you could check the progress easily.
- [Social] Tweetdeck activity (level: easy)
- Social support is pretty easy to start with. If you’re a newcomer, you can start by setting up your workspace in Tweetdeck. Once you set up your workspace, you could start answering questions right away. Also, don’t forget to add #fxhelp hashtag!
