Demonstration proposal Closed Fri 8 Jun 2018 11:03AM

This is a proposal, where you can make a decision together. You can start a proposal once a discussion is underway.

Everyone is asked to state a position by the deadline. You can extend the deadline if you need to, or close a proposal early.

You can change your position while the proposal is open. You might reconsider your view as you listen to others.

Sometimes groups work through a series of proposals to build solutions together. You can raise sequential proposals in this thread.

Is there any tool on here that can be used as a task tracker?


Abraham Heinemann Fri 15 Jun 2018 1:11PM

not quite sure how you mean task tracker. if you explain what you want maybe i can find something to integrate here or a way to use this to do that :) but also see points below

(1) "The key," says Benjamin Knight, one of the members of the core team developing Loomio, "is building shared understanding before a decision is reached by the group." He adds, "That means that when you get to the outcome, it's not that everyone has to agree to the outcome, they just have to agree that its the best outcome the group can reach at that time."

(2) Apps like Bettermeans Tracker are more about assigning tasks in an issue tracker, whereas Loomio focuses more on decisions as a community
