Designing Decidim together
Continuity in components
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Currently when transitioning from “proposals” to “budgets” or to “accountability”, the cards lose their link with the proposers. Proposers lose the possibility to edit/contribute to the proposals, manage info on them, report on their progress, etc. This blocks a number of interesting behaviours in participatory budgeting and other types of participatory exercises.
Describe the solution you'd like
The solution would be to produce this continuity by tying the components more closely together and maintaining the permissions of project proposers. Tracability is a core feature of Decidim and it is lacking in this regard, so we would love to stat a debate on the solution and make it happen.
Can be in-part or fully financed by clients of OSP. We received this demand many times so we could probably collect the necessary funds. However, if you'd like to make it happen faster by co-deving it or co-financing it - let us know and let’s do it all together.

Hey @Ariadna_VA ! Thanks for the response!
Let's take an example - in a participatory budget, the first phase (and component) invites people to suggest ideas and a second phase (and component) invites people to vote for te ideas. However, given that when transitioning from one component to another takes away the possibility for the first phase proposer to contribute/edit, tracibility and flexibility in proposal management is lost.
It's kinda difficult to explain, but I hope my second try was clearer than the first one.
I am not sure I understand. You can change phase without changing component
Hello @xabier !
Of course, but when you change the component, you take away the authors traceability.
Traceability should not be lost. The original proposals should be linked. You loose authorship of course because:
Either you modify the proposals in the new round (e.g. merging, editing etc), in which case you cannot maintain authorship because it is not the original author who made those changes and it is a derivative work.
Or you don't change the content of the proposal in which case you don't need a new proposal phase.
