Steps for Collective Decision Making
First we must to create a Issue page. That works like a Forum, and we must open the Content Manager
at the Control Panel
In the selected folder (the root is a nice choice)
, create a New content
Select the Issue
Describe the issue as you do with an article.
That is created at state "Open for proposals"
where users can create proposals to be debated. To create a new proposal, click on the "New proposal"
Describe the proposal as you do with an article.
The created proposal looks like an article with some issue related data. You can go back to the issue page by clicking on the back button, or in the issue name.
Well, all proposals was created or the time for proposals was ended, so, close it.
At the edit mode you can select the next state "Time for Debate"
The table of proposals has links to each one. Click to participate on the debate.
Well, comment it like any article, and back.
Change the state to "Open for voting"
and add your votes, as a ordered list of preferences.
Then change the state to "Decision made"
and see the result. The table will be ordered by the result.
The admin can see who had voted on the issue proposals, but not the vote itself. But the vote can be viewed by the server admin, as any other personal data.
