Org Community Suggestions

Community Suggestions aggregated at the organisation level

As mentioned in Setup your first Space, Community Suggestions are a great way to give a voice to your community and understand what their needs are.

With the Community Suggestions page at the organisation level, you can see an aggregated list of all the Community Suggestions from all Spaces/Projects. This way it's easy to view, search, track and manage suggestions & proposals in a central place.

By default you will see two tabs under the Community Suggestions page:

  • Trending: A list of all suggestions ordered by the number of votes received for each

  • Recent: A list of all suggested ordered from latest to oldest

Note: You can add more views to your page when you follow the steps mentioned in Create Templates for Community Suggestions

Add a Community Suggestion

Contributors can also add suggestions & proposals from the org level page.

Step 1: Click Add a suggestion at the top right corner and select the space/project you want to add the suggestion to (including nested spaces/projects)

Step 2: Fill in the title and details of the suggestion and click Create

Your suggestion will now have been created and you can share it so others to up vote it.

Accept a Community Suggestion

If a suggestion or proposal proves valuable, Managers and DAO Admins can click the Accept button and move the suggestion to the space/project it is part of and start working on it.

Note: Once you click Accept you can also use the Add a tip button to customise a reward for the person who shared the suggestion or proposal, or choose to Continue Without.

If you choose to add a tip, you will be presented with a prompt to select the preferred token and add the amount you would like to reward the suggestion or proposal creator.

Note: If you have not added a token + network before, you can follow the steps noted on Creating your first bountybefore proceeding.

Once accepted, the task will show up on the space/project under To Do status with the default task permission. If a tip was added, a tip sub-task assigned to the creator will also be created and show up under the Done status for payment.

Integrate Community Suggestions with Discord

Step 1: When you open the detail view of a Community Suggestion you will also see a button to Discuss the suggestion or proposal.

If you haven't already followed Connecting to Discord, it will prompt you to Connect. Otherwise you can proceed to Step 4 below.

Tip: We recommend setting up the Discord integration before making a call for suggestions or proposals so that they can be richly updated & discussed directly in your Discord.

Step 2a: You will land on the Discord Integration settings page for your Space/Project and can setup which channels you'd like to use for your community suggestions.

Step 3b: Follow the directions listed in Connecting to Discord to connect a Discord channel to Dework and receive an update everytime a new community suggestion is created

Step 3c: Follow the directions listed in Connecting to Discord to connect a Discord channel to Dework and create a thread to discuss the suggestions.

Step 4: If your Discord integration is setup correctly, you will see options to discuss the suggestion via Discord Web and Discord App (with a handy Save as Default checkbox you can click on first to save your choice for next time)

In your Discord, you will now see rich updates when a suggestion is created, along with links to Upvote or Learn More that take the user to Dework. There will also be threads connected to it which is great for discussing it, especially for feedback & follow-ups after it is accepted and being worked on.

Create Templates for Community Suggestions

To streamline and better organise the suggestions you receive, create templates that users can select when creating a suggestion.

Note: Creating a template also adds new views to the Community Suggestions page so it's easy to drill-down to specific types of suggestions.

Step 1: Go to your Space/Project settings menu via ⚙️ and click on Templates. Then, under Suggestion Templates, click on New Template.

Step 2: You will see a pop-up where you can fill in the template name, and also description prompts you would like contributors to fill out as part of this template.

Step 3: After filling in the details click on Save Template.

You will now see the the new template listed under Suggestion Templates in your space/project settings, with options to Create task from template, Edit and Delete.

Use a Template for your suggestion

Step 1: Click on Add a Suggestion at the top-right of the page

Step 2: In the pop-up that appears, click on Template in the top-left corner and select the template you would like to use

Step 3: You will now see the template details pre-filled in your suggestion. Update the title and fill in the prompts provided in the description, and then click Create.

You will see your newly created suggestion added to the page, with a tag that shows the template that was used. It will also show up under the specific view for that template.
