What document templates do our users really need?

Stella, a colleague of mine, pointed me to statistical data about the usage of our OOo template repository. I had a look on those numbers and made a word clound using Wordle. The cloud shows for what document templates do our users search for in the search field of the OOo template repository:

I found the result quite interesting and we will consider this when creating new document templates for OOo.

Best regards,

What is lacking is an easy and intutive way to get more templates - a "Get more templates" button when you are choosing templates.

OOo 3.1 offers a link to point to the template repository. Just call 'File - New - Templates and Documents' dialog. There you will find a link at the bottom.

"The user is always right"

An easy and intuitive way is lacking. Maybe the link can be replaced by a shining, glowing button
