Sweet new functionality in reps.mozilla.org

Over the past 4 weeks, the Mozilla Reps Web Development team has been
focused on delivering new discoverability features to enhance our
portal. Last night we landed what we believe to be the most awesome
version of Mozilla Reps portal ever!New features include:New timeline vizualization of events
Having a map to visualize all our events and better document and
manage our events throughout Mozilla was a breakthrough 6 months ago,
on how we . But we wanted to take it one step further. We envisioned
and implemented a timeline visualization for events that works with
our search bar in events. You can now visually identify and scroll
through community events worldwide and through different time periods

Vouched mozillians login
In true spirit of pioneering the integration between Mozilla services,
you now have the ability to login into our portal if you are a vouched
Mozillian (with persona) even if you are not a Rep! You can then
customize a dashboard based on the interest areas of Mozilla you want
to track, and get activities and metrics from Reps that are working on
those areas.

This new functionality raises the awareness around the countless
activities that Reps are driving across all functional areas and
delivers easy discoverability of Reps working on those areas, so that
you can communicate with them. As always we already have in the
pipeline the enhancement of functionalities around this new feature,
like email abilities, unification of dashboards between Mozillians and
Reps and other cool new dashboard functionalities.

and many more features…
..including the ability to email all participants of an event via a
mail modal in event pages, ability to extract people info and emails
if logged in the site in /people page, ability to search in events
based on date range and enhancing the email notification
functionalities.

As those lines are written our web developers together with our webdev
volunteers are working on a Voting system and new commenting system
and categories for events. You can find all about what is in the works
in our current dev sprint.

Special thanks to our devs Tasos and Nemo, our code reviewer Giorgos,
our production manager Ben and all the Reps for the countless
countinous feedback and improvement pointers.
