Future functionalities - xrnl/aginun Wiki
This page contains desirable future functionalities for the volunteer platform. When planning what functionality to include future versions we will select items from this list. If you want to suggest a functionality create a new issue with the suggestion label
- Templates of standardised roles: XR has many standardised roles for the whole movement (e.g. representative, facilitator) and standardised roles for specific working groups (e.g. the photographer role for Media & Communication working group). It would be very useful if these standardised roles could be available from a template when publishing a new role (with pre-defined title, responsibilities, requirements...). This would make it much easier to publish roles and will promote the use of standardised roles in XR.
- bi-directional recruitment: a feature that was requested by XR global is for all volunteers to also have an account, and to enter their interests and skills in their profile. That way the recruitment can work both ways: volunteers can search for roles, but integrators can also search for volunteers. XR UK also has this as a major functionality in their platform.
- Tasks: As you can read here, finding people for specific tasks is also very valuable. For this we could reuse much of the functionality for roles, but it might be more complex because people might want to assign new people to tasks, these people could mark the tasks as complete... Before we know it we might be replicating an entire task management system. We need to think well if we want to add this, or if we just want to always use roles for recruitment, and then manage tasks in a separate system.
