Create a Wikimedia Phabricator How-To screencast (23): Using Maniphest advanced search.

completed by: mandarj

mentors: Quim Gil, Andre Klapper is a new collaboration platform used by the Wikimedia Community. (Instructions are to be completed, we are focusing on the basics currently). We have (especially see the "Searching" section there!), however, wouldn't it be great to just show how to do something, instead of describing it step by step with text only?

Each screencast (see ) video will focus on a single task and aim to have less than 1 minute duration. For the specific single task to cover in your screencast, please see the summary of this GCI task.

This page will save you time:

No need to agree any script in advance, just look at the written instructions, play around yourself, and record the screencast (preferably in a quiet place so your voice can be heard clearly when you are describing what you are doing in the video). The worst thing that might happen is that we give you feedback and you have to repeat the less-than-a-minute video again.

You probably want to show how to get to the advanced search for Maniphest in Phabricator, explain the difference to the "normal" search in the upper corner, and cases in which you want to use the advanced search instead of the normal search.

You will have to upload the screencast to Wikimedia Commons in a free video format - see for more information.

You might need to play a bit with Phabricator first to understand it before you create that screencast - please see the existing written documentation (we also have a test instance of Phabricator, for example).
