 + 
 +It's interesting that the Bugzilla survey was aimed at a small number of organisations using MantisBT, rather than its direct users. Something to consider for us as well - perhaps by having two different surveys - organisations versus end-users. 
 + 
 + 
 +==== User role ==== 
 + 
 +  - How to you usually use MantisBT: 
 +    - I am a MantisBT user - I report/edit bugs 
 +    - I am a MantisBT administrator - I set up projects, categories, users etc 
 +    - I am a MantisBT system administrator - I manage at least a MantisBT installation on a server 
 +    - I am a MantisBT developer - I contribute to the MantisBT core or to a plugin 
 +  - [all] Country  
 + 
 + 
 +==== Platform ​==== 
 + 
 +  ​- [administrator] What Operating System do you run MantisBT on? (+ version) 
 +  - [administrator] What Database server do you run MantisBT on? (+ version) 
 +  - [administrator] What Web server do you run MantisBT on? (+ version) 
 +  - [administrator] Which PHP version do you use?

 +  - [administrator] How many projects are there in your MantisBT instance? 
 +  - [administrator] How many active users are there in your MantisBT instance? 
 +  - [administrator] How many bugs* do you have in your MantisBT instance? ​ ==> hopefully not too many but if you do please report them on our bugtracker [link] ;-) joke aside, this should be reworded, at least use the word '​issues'​ instead of bugs  
 +  - [administrator] What plugins do you have installed in your MantisBT instance? 
 +  - [administrator] Do you run MantisBT on your own server or on a hosted instance? 
 + 
 +==== Current status ==== 
 + 
 +  - [all] Do you currently use MantisBT?
     - If not, why not and which tools are you using now?      - If not, why not and which tools are you using now? 
-  - Which version of MantisBT are you running? 
-  - How would you rank MantisBT in terms of {usability, performance,​ look and feel,​documentation}?​ 
-  - Which of the following features do you use and how often ( matrix - rows are features, columns are numbered 1-5, were 5 means most often)? 
-     - Roadmap page 
-     - Changelog page 
-     - Notifications 
-     - etc  ( we really need a good selection here ) 
  
-===== Future =====+  - [all] Which version of MantisBT are you running? 
 +  - [all] How would you rank MantisBT in terms of {usability, performance,​ look and feel,​documentation}?​ 
 + 
 +==== Future ==== 
 + 
 +   - [all] What would be three things that you would change or improve substantially in MantisBT? Should allow users to type in suggestions,​ perhaps link to [[feature_candidates]] 
 +     - we might consider having some initial options here and also a large free text field ( should restrict checkboxes to 3 ) 
 +     - Better look and feel 
 +     - Keyboard shortcuts for navigation and other common actions 
 +     - Extended reporting capabilities 
 +     - Ability to download and install plugins from the administration interface 
 +     - Better performance 
 +     - Better support for other database engines ( which ? ) 
 +     - Ability to vote for issues 
 +     - Ability to preview attachments inline ( videos, images ) 
 +     - Wysiwyg (or alternative structured text like Markdown ) editor 
 +     - Diff-style email notifications 
 + 
 +   - [all] I would continue using Mantis if it would function only on recent versions of modern browsers ( currently IE 8+, latest Firefox/​Chrome/​Safari ). Moving to more modern browsers also involves a more streamlined and modern UI.
