The Mozilla Reps portal provides the tools for Reps to be successful in their day to day activities and also receive mentorship for continued development. It also provides metrics for understanding and evaluating Mozilla's grass-roots community engagement efforts.
Some initial thoughts and driving forces behind the portal can be found here.

- P1: Mentors are traversing too many (>50) wiki pages to find out if mentorees have filed reports.
- P1: Mails are sent out in an unsustainable manner, manually, over regular intervals (monthly reminders, weekly warnings) to hundreds of Mozilla Reps.
- P2: Swag and budget requests are triaged manually (comparing 100s per month to past-defined guidelines) over different systems and swag ordering is also done manually (filling over and over again the same fields).
- P2: Wiki pages have an editing overhead that demotivates Reps from report and plan ahead their actions in Events
- P3: The scalability of the current awards system (i.e. manually performed) is not scaling well with hundreds of Reps in the program.
- P3: Meetings are fragmented with no ability to push agenda items top-down (from council to regional meetings) and logs are not kept in an efficient way (no meeting notes, and action items). Even when we have action items they are difficult to find.
