to form a well-informed opinion and make the discussion happen.

Manage your project phases

Split your project between phases and decide what happens in each: idea collection, votes, etc. You have control over what happens and when.

Organise events along the process

Schedule face-to-face meetings at key moments in your participation process to make the most of it. Each project has its own agenda.

Define a consultation method for each phase

Decide when citizens can post ideas, vote, and comment on them, to build a tailor-made process and match the council agenda.

An interface adapting to each phase

The interface of the platform is evolving to match the participation needs you have at this precise moment.

Your project does not have a specific timeline? We also support continuous projects.

ACCESS SEGMENTATION

Manage who can participate on projects

Decide who can do what and when by managing the rights to specific actions for certain groups of users depending on the phase of the project.

  • Voting rights and restrictions
  • Commenting rights
  • Posting rights
  • Project access

Control who can access your project

Only city administrators should give feedback? Or only citizens from a neighbourhood need to be involved? Nothing easier!

Create working groups for administrators or citizens and decide who has access to them, so that everyone can freely contribute on the topics relevant to them.
