Contributor Success, and is titled "[GitLab] Developer Relations Swag Coupon Codes & Delivery Tracking"
This portal shows the items you can claim, given the right coupon code. This is the link sent out to Wider Community Members.
This portal shows everything we've ordered and that is in stock & ready to ship. Access can be requested through an access request. Mention "MyBrightSites" as the tech stack, and ping a manager from the Developer Relations department.
As of 2023-03-20, this tool is not present yet in the tech_stack.yml file yet. This is a known issue that will soon be resolved. Only Boundless (the external vendor) has the capabilities to provision accounts today.
A list of the items in our inventory with the amount of items left to be claimed is accessible in the Google Sheet.

If you think that a community member, contributor, or GitLab team member deserves a prize, nominate them for some swag! This also applies if you've reached an important milestone with your contributor (e.g First MR merged).
Currently we work with 3 value tiers. A coupon tier describes the roughly montary value you are able to claim in the gift shop.
For details on what is available in each category, please see the Inventory tab in the Google Sheet "Developer Relations Swag Coupon Codes & Delivery Tracking".
There is a possibility to create access for, say, Meetup organizers, to self-service their required swag within our budget. Please file an access request and assign this to your manager.
We will need a way to verify that swag has been expensed, to verify that our swag budget is not exceeded, or calculate how much budget is left i.e. for quarterly reports. Once individuals have ordered swag, Boundless updates the spreadsheet to let us know if the coupon was redeemed. We need to make sure it gets delivered. They were some issues with deliveries recently - getting stuck at customs, etc. Sometimes it costs more than planned so they have to follow up and let us know if there's additional invoicing.
Create an issue within the Developer Relations - Community Building project and assign to @sugaroverflow (Fatima), and ping
This is a strong request from Boundless. They need to move orders into the inventory so they need us to plan ahead and request number of items, which items, and by which date. After that, we can let contributors decide what to get.
If you'd like to make it easier, you could plan ahead for a lot of items, pay for the invoice and ask for the items to be added to an existing or new category
No, we simplified the historical situation on purpose as it was difficult to understand what we had in stock, difficult to send out items and a lot of
busy work. The reason it is a single front, with Tiers & Categories allows us to scale and minimize human operations.
Yes. You can request to add custom notecards to kits.
