You can now define who can take part in the citizen proposals section of your platform.
As with the permission system already in place for projects, you can define which (smart) groups of users can vote, comment, and/or post proposals.
When combining this with an identity verification system such as DigID, NemID, itsme, or FranceConnect, it means that you can now define that only 'real citizens' can participate and that each citizen can only vote once on a proposal. This renders your citizen proposal feature into a digital alternative for existing legal frameworks around citizen proposals, citizen initiatives, or petitions, all of which are often still done today by collecting signatures on paper.
We also implemented two improvements:
- Administrators and project managers can now always take any action in their projects, regardless of the permissions set.
- When adding a new survey project, only logged in users will now be able to participate. If nevertheless, you want all people, with or without being logged in, to participate, you can do that by setting 'Taking the survey' to 'Everyone' in the 'Access rights' tab of your project
