Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

It's really hard for users to discover the Sync feature. By improving discoverability, we hope to:

  • Increase user uptake
  • Ensure users are already syncing & have data waiting when they setup Sync on Fennec.

2. Users & use cases

`

3. Dependencies

`

4. Requirements

  • Does not affect performance in production/beta channel builds.
  • Firefox prompts users to set up Sync in a non-intrusive, non-annoying way.
  • Promotions can be turned off, if needed.
  • Promotion text is localized.
  • Promotion text may be modified out of band. [P2]

Non-goals

  • Changes to the Sync setup experience (that's a separate feature).
