More functions of adhocracy+

Complex participation processes often consist of more than one idea challenge or poll. You can define complex processes by combining the participation modules and adding events in the administration interface.

During the design, conception and development of adhocracy+ we pay great attention to the standards for accessible web applications so that the participation projects are open to as large a circle of participants as possible.

If you only want to involve a certain group of participants, you can mark a participation project as private and invite the participants via their e-mail addresses. This is very useful for participation in committees or organizations, for example.

adhocracy+ is developed as a modern web application and adapts to desktop devices as well as smartphones and tablets by using a responsive design.
