Designing Decidim together
Accountability from the front-office
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Currently the “accountability” component is administrated from the back office by platform admins.
Some participatory budgets, where ideas are transformed into reality by the proposers of the projects, need to have public updates on their progress from the proposers themselves. Currently only admins can add content to the accountability component.
Describe the solution you'd like
We would like participants/groups to be able to use the accountability component from the front office. As the change is major, and we will not be able to do it by ourselves, we would be glad to shape the UX and technical implementation of this upgrade together with members of the community (especially the ones willing to join forces on this one!).
Some funding may be provided by Open Source Politics and our clients, but not all, so this feature is actively looking for co-financing!

hi! i think it's an amazing feature, but i'm not sure if front is the indicated space. how did you imagine it?
from what you say, it seems like a very similar use case to a group promoting an initiative, which has its role prepared in the module. I agree that beyond the accountability of the administrator, it could be the "promoting committee" although it will not always be there, since it may be an individual citizen who has proposed.
on the other hand, I do agree that accountability can be done by the general public. Why can't I, as a citizen, go to the selected project and put a photo updating that it is done or that it is not done? that could be another debate.
