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.

Thank you for your feedbacks @xabier!
I think the integrity of the proposals could be maintained in this case by the proposal versioning. The possibility to edit the proposal after it was answered wouldn't cancel the previous forms of the proposal.
In the use case I think about, it's an administration that wants users to enhance their proposals according to the feedbacks made by the administration. So a proposal can be rejected because it's lacking some information, the admin answers it by rejecting it and explaining why, so the user can improve it by editing it, so it can be accepted in another answer pool.
I find this use case very interesting because it allows users to learn to speak the language of the administration and to continuously improve their proposals.It makes the rejection less definitive.
I also agree with the problem you raise about accepted proposals that are modified after acceptance. Acceptance seems more definitive, as the administration should be taking action after it and the proposal shouldn't evolve anymore.
May be a solution could be to add a config that enables admins to allow users to edit their proposals after they were rejected?
