Hi, this is Eftakhairul Islam. I have been selected in Google Summer of Code (GSOC) 2014 for CIVICRM Phone Integration.

As a part of my project, I am going to implement a Voice Broadcasting feature for CiviCRM. The main goal of this project is to implement an extension for this functionality. It will be designed to integrate differents VOIP services such as Plivo, Twilio and Cisco via plugins, with a Plivo plugin developed for the first version. The first peice of functionality will allow suitably permissioned users to record or upload a voice mesage to the system and then schedule its broadcast to a group of people. Users are also able to check broadcast logs.

I came up with several mockups below which illustrate each each step in the sending wizard. I tried to keep the interface consistent with the existing civimail feature. (Another option was for me to implement an interface similar to the spec for Mail Blast UI using AngularJS. However, to keep the scope limited...

Hi I am Aditya Nambiar , a 3rd year undergraduate student pursuing Computer Science and Engineering at IIT Bombay. I am currently working on a GSOC project - Visualization for Mailing stats and A/B testing with Kurund Jalmi as my mentor

This project aims at creating an A/B testing tool for CiviMail so all users of CiviMail can improve their response rate for all their mailings. To make this easier on the end user, this project will also incorporate graphical reporting (such as using charts, graphs etc.) of the mailing statistics. This will allow the admin to interpret and monitor the results of their mailing campaign and hence make a decision based on data.

We (my mentor Kurund Jalmi and I) are currently finalizing how the UI of A/B Testing should look like. To come up with a good UI I have searched through other available A/B testing platforms and my findings are available here http://wiki.civicrm...

Hi, I'm Siddhant Rajagopalan, a second year Undergraduate student studying CSE from IIT Bombay.

As part of my GSoC 2014 project which is to improve the usability of CiviMail, I have come up with 2 mockups. I would appreciate feedback regarding which mockup would be a superior fit.


Aim of the Project

Browser based applications are becoming the de facto web standard. CiviMail is an important component that has a high impact. Current workflow in CiviCRM is lengthy and multi-step process. It would be easily converted into simple javascript application, using modern framework such as AngularJS. AngularJS is a leading javascript framework and building on it should be a good example for future CiviCRM usability improvements.
