Decisions

a page for listing the community's decisions with support for tracking proposals through the process, automatically generating and emailing agendas, a General Meeting calendar, and online votes

by default the page contains a simple list of decisions with fields for a title, the text of the decision, status, and date.

the status field can be one of the following options (not all will be available depending on how the Decisions module is configured):

  • completed (no decision) - the community agreed to stop discussing the proposal without dropping it or making a decision - shown via the Old Proposals item on the left
  • did not pass - the community used its process to decide not to pass the proposal - shown via the Old Proposals item on the left
  • dropped - the community decided to drop the proposal and remove it from the process - shown via the Old Proposals item on the left
  • in process - the community is currently discussing the proposal so it should be on the agenda of the next meeting - shown in the Parking Lot via the Proposals item on the left
  • online vote - the proposal will be decided by an online vote of community members who have opted in to the system - shown via the Votes item on the left
  • owner vote - the proposal will be decided by an online vote of community members who are "owners" (one per household) - shown via the Votes item on the left
  • passed - the community used its process to decide to pass the proposal - shown via the Decisions item on the left, which is shown as the default on the Decisions page when the module is not configured to "support proposals"
  • pending - when the module is configured to "support proposals" this is for online approval by community members of proposals to go on to a meeting - shown via the Proposals item on the left
  • tabled - the community has decided to table the proposal until a later date - shown via the Proposals item on the left
  • withdrawn - the proposal was withdrawn by the person or team or proposed it - shown via the Old Proposals item on the left
