Figure 1. Assemblies.

Then click on NEW. The NEW ASSEMBLY window will open (New assembly.), where general information on the assembly has to be entered. See 2.5.1 (Information on participatory processes) for filling in the information required there.

Go to the list of assemblies, clicking on the icons corresponding to each of the assemblies; you can duplicate and configure the assembly and preview how it will look once it is published.

Once the bodies/assemblies have been created, functions can be added such as meetings, documents, static pages etc. To do this you will have to follow the same steps as the ones for adding functions to participatory processes (See 2.5 Processes).

Go to ASSEMBLEES where you will find the list of assemblies (Assemblies.), and click on the name of the body you want configure. The GENERAL INFORMATION window will open, displaying the body’s submenu on the left, from where you can carry out the configuration.

The options available through the assemblies’ submenu are Info, Features/ Components, Categories, Attachments, Assembly users and Moderations (Assemblies' submenu.). To configure the various options, see 2.5 (Processes).
