Propose new features
Designing Decidim together
Add the feature "process type" to allow filtering Processes by type
In some cases it is required to be able to filter participatory processes by type and subtype. The "processes" module allows creating groups of processes, but does not have a filter field available (as if it exists instead in the "assemblies" module).
Add a field and a filter functionality "type of processes" to allow filtering processes by type, as we can do in "assemblies".
It is not convenient to use the available global classification systems ("scopes" and "areas") because they don't allow a differentiated application according to the context (show different filters in /processes or in /assemblies or even in /group_process, for example). And they are systems that are too intertwined with many other modules & components.
In order to create the new process_type feature, we will...
-Create a Decidim::ParticipatoryProcessType model and an optional association with participatory processes.
-Add CRUD management from admin of process types and include the association in the processes form.
-Add a filter to set process_type in the global processes list or current processes group ( /processes & /processes_groups/X ), like the existing assembly_type selector.
With some extra enhancements:
- This filter should not appear if there are no processes with a type assigned.
- The filter should only display the different types of available processes in the context (global processes list or current processes group)
-Make sure to add tests to keep test coverage at required levels.
Could this issue impact on users private data?

In this case, the aim is to distinguish between participatory processes and participation in regulations and to be able to filter the processes of each “group” by type, showing only the categories that correspond to each “group” to avoid confusing the user.
The categories of "type of process" in this case will be related to the "type of policies": Laws, Plans, Projects, preliminary consultations, Public policy. But in other use cases it could be used to have the possibility of filtering with specific categories to the processes, regardless of the areas and scopes. And not showing up when not in use.
This new filter "process type" (will show only the categories that have associated processes) can be applied in addition to the global filters (scopes and area).
Global filters (scope and area) affect all participatory spaces (processes, process groups, assemblies, etc.) and in this case they are used as follows:
- Scopes: will be used to filter based on organizational structure with nested categories.
- Areas: will be used to filter by subject areas.
If you want, I can try to explain some other solutions that have been applied in other cases for similar requirements and their “problems”.
