Drupal blog: Offering more inclusive user demographic forms

© Open Demographics Initiative's gender identification questions

Last week, Nikki Stevens presented "Other, Please Specify" for TEDx at Arizona State University. In her TED Talk, Nikki shares the story behind the Open Demographics Initiative, which is developing a recommended set of questions that anyone can use to ask online community members about their demographics.

Nikki demonstrates how a majority of demographic surveys require users to conform to restrictive identity fields, which can alienate minority or underrepresented groups. The Open Demographics Initiative wants to develop forms that are more inclusive, in addition to giving people more control over the data and information they chose to disclose.

Inspired by Nikki's presentation, I reached out to the engineering team at the Drupal Association to see if there are plans to implement the Open Demographics Initiative's recommendations on Drupal.org. I was happy to learn that they are collaborating with the Open Demographics team to add the recommendations to the user registration process on Drupal.org.

Adopting Open Demographics on Drupal.org will also allow us to improve reporting on diversity and inclusion, which in turn will help us better support initiatives that advance diversity and inclusion. Plus, we can lead by example and inspire other organizations to do the same.

Thank you Nikki, for sharing the story behind the Open Demographics Initiative, and for helping to inspire change in the Drupal community.

Acquia Lightning Blog: New React-based content Scheduler

New React-based content Scheduler Adam Balsam Wed, 05/09/2018 - 13:28

Lightning 3.1.4 (released on 9 May) ships with a completely new content scheduler built in React. Here's an example of an editor scheduling a piece of content to be published on Friday and archived the following Monday:

We had four main goals when creating this scheduler:

  1. Simplify the UX [Issue #2935198]
  2. Make the scheduler available on content creation forms [Issue #2935105]
  3. Add ability to schedule multiple transition in serial [Issue #2936757]
  4. Give content editors the ability to set the date that content should be published [Issue #2935715]

For the first goal, we had a related team goal of creating something in React. Originally we had thought that might be an internal tool, something that never saw the light of day, or perhaps a configuration form. But when we started digging into the UX challenges of the scheduler, we realized this was a great fit. The result is a responsive, intuitive widget that sits quietly out of the way until you need to interact with it.

The second and third goals were just to fix a couple or regressions that were introduced when we moved away from the Scheduled Updates module as part of the migration to Content Moderation. Both are table stakes functionality for a usable scheduler.

Finally, the fourth goal comes from the reality that, in many workflows, content authors are often the person who knows when content should actually be published. But content authors usually don't have permission to actually publish content - and, as a result, can't schedule that transition either. This system allows site builders to create an "Approved for publish" state. Content authors can then schedule a transition from that state to "Published", but the transition won't actually happen unless an Editor moves the content into the "Approved for publish" state first. Look for more documentation about how we expect people to use that functionality in the near future.

You can find a sandbox of Lightning Scheduler - along with Lightning's other features here:

Or update to Lightning 3.1.4 yourself:

$ composer require acquia/lightning:3.1.4 --no-update $ composer update acquia/lightning --with-all-dependencies
