Potential for Loomio in Plunket

JS justine storey Public Seen by 5

Given that our boards are speread out and only see each other weeks apart do you see value in using a tool such as this to enable them to have online discussions and make decisions? I think the potential for them to come to a decision is a step up from anything we have to currently offer them and I see this as a real benefit.

How well does this work on mobile devices?

Also security might be an issue. how is the data stored and how is it managed? does there have to be a person on a board that will start these discussions and if someone leaves a board how do you stop them from getting into this information with their login?

not to be all negative. I like the concept but for the board is this not another thing for them to not like. they are already frustrated with the amount of logins they have to use. example being their plunket email.

good questions Alan - my understanding is that you need to be invited to be part ofthe group therefore if you leave it is up to the group administrator to manage the permissions and ensure those no longer part of the group are taken off

also need to check the data but I understand it woudl sit on our own servers and therefore would be covered by us. Does that sound right - sorry non-tech understanding but I can check

I do take your point though that it is another thing for them to log into. It may be that this is a step too far for most at the moment and we focus on tlc. But I think its a great tool and one I wanted to check out and see if we coudl make it work.

Any information entered into this site will be stored on their servers.
I agree its a good program just might be too much for the boards to take on - too many different things.
