    This paper details our work towards designing a system for crowd-sourcing responses on thermal comfort in naturally ventilated office buildings. We provide preliminary qualitative findings on the deployment of this system. Specifically, we explore the different human factors that led to our system being used as something akin to a digital complaints box and how we intend to adapt and leverage the system as a thermal comfort alerts system to better inform building managers.
