    This paper aims at examining how facilitators can activate participants to contribute in webbased co-development. Online tools are acknowledged to be beneficial in providing ways to collaborative design and develop new product and services. In this paper, we describe the facilitation process and methods for activating participants in a web-based co-development project. We use data-driven visual analytics to examine the impact of the facilitation activities to participants’ activity. Our findings suggest that scheduled tasks and carefully planned email reminders activate participants in web-based co-development.
