Summary0004827: List number of users
DescriptionCould you make a column which lists the number of users for the products?
And perhaps also one for the number of users who reported that update (percentage would be fine)?

It could tell me already in advance how reliable could be a reported update.
And it is in my opinion also very interesting to see how common some applications are.

I know I can see that by clicking on get update form SUMo page, but doing that for hundreds of products...

TagsNo tags attached.

There is still another reason for such a column.
If I am the only reporter of a software then I cannot trust SUMO if it tells me that the software is up-to-date.

That's also my motivation to get some indication on reliability and on user base.

According to Kyle only the percentage is a reliable data, not the number of users where you still need to define what is taken into account and what not. I don't consider % as reliable for software tools with little user base (less than 10 users).

For user count you still have special cases like devices which were last online over a year ago, SUMo being uninstalled, a software tool getting an update and the software tool getting uninstalled. Shall a user count really take into account every device with SUMo installed even if that device was last online 10 years ago and possibly no longer exists?
So I think its a kind of active users within the last 12 months or so, ignoring devices which have last been online with contact to SUMo server longer before.

I fully share your view @wolf.

Maybe % + a "reliability factor" could make sense. I'll check, but this is not a short term priority.
