Community Tools

Adoption, support, and development of the Mifos platform across our open source community is essential to the success of the microfinance industry.

How can we help you interact and collaborate better? What tools and information do you need to succeed?

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. How-To Video Guides

    Short several minute tutorials on how to do common tasks in Mifos - these could include screencasts like walking through configuring a report or could include tips and advice like best practices for project management, business process mapping, etc.

    • Simplicity: Mifos Domain

      I wish to propose that we work on 'simplifying the mifos domain'. This work would have two parts to it:

      1. Simplify comprehension of the domain by describing and distilling it in one place with a clean simple language and examples where necessary
      2. Ultimately reflect this simplification within the code

      The purpose of this simplification is:

      1. Make it a little easier for new developers to join the project and quickly add value
      2. Develop expertise around the domain (core and generic parts)

      Background:

      Having worked on the 'Collection Sheet' functionality in the recent past, I came to realise…

      • allow the community to nominate a release manager and rotate often

        The Mifos core team has many things to do and needs a lot more help. Besides, an "outside" perspective won't harm

        • Regional User Groups

          Within local regions, there are many common issues and problems being faced. A powerful way to quickly work through these issues and further extend Mifos to support region-specific needs would be the local collaboration amongst Specialists and MFIs using Mifos. Think this could be effective?

          • Mifos.org - Optimized for Low Bandwidth Connections

            The current version of mifos.org is a fairly heavy site making it very difficult for users with low bandwidth connections to access documentation without long delays. Is this a problem you're facing too?

            • Documentation KnowledgeBase

              The documentation in the "Deployment Support" section of the Knowledge Center contains some of the most valuable guides and instructions for successfully implementing and using Mifos. Could it be better organized? Would a knowledgebase that allows for easier searching, better navigation, recommendation of top documentation, and organization by audience, etc. be useful?

              • Product Roadmap and Feature Submission Process

                While UserVoice will help Grameen Foundation better understand your product needs, do you feel like the Product Roadmap provides a clear vision of where the product is going? Do you know how to request new features or build features on your own? Would a more comprehensive process and organized roadmap help you better understand how Mifos will continue to add value?

                • Improved Search Tool

                  At times, the search box on www.mifos.org can return some unexpected results. Does our current search mechanism help you find what you're looking for? How could we improve how you find what you need?

                  • User Help Forums

                    Mailing lists are sometimes tricky to use and difficult to search and navigate for some of our users. Forums could help improve ease of use, searchability of common problems, and provide recognition for those who are answering others problems.
