Participatory processes currently have the following components:

  • PAGE: Static pages with multi-language support which optionally allow comments and iframes to be added.

  • MEETINGS: meetings in person, in other words face-to-face events included in a process.

  • PROPOSALS: written contributions posted by users on the platform, which can be voted on.

  • BUDGETS: a specific module for deploying a participatory budget process. This allows a minimum percentage of  the total budget to be set for supporting submitted projects.

  • SURVEY: for conducting surveys.

  • ACCOUNTABILITY: follow-up files for initiatives, projects, plans etc. This enables other components such as proposals and face-to-face meetings to be added.

  • DEBATES: for conducting debates.

  • SORTITIONS: This allows the people who will form part of a group (such as a committee) to be selected at random from a larger group.
