1.2 Users with access to special interfaces

The Consul platform features several possible interfaces associated with different types of users. A more detailed explanation of these interfaces can be found in the Interfaces section.

  • Administrators. These users can access the administrator interface and the rest of the interfaces (management, moderation, evaluation). All platform processes and settings are managed through the administrator interface.

  • Moderators. Users with this role can access the moderation interface, where all platform content marked as 'inappropriate' by users is listed. In this interface Moderators have options to hide or confirm this content and block users.

  • Evaluators. This type of user allows access to the evaluation interface for participatory budgets. Through this interface, Evaluators see the proposals that administrators assign to each specific evaluator and can complete the evaluation reports.

  • Managers. These users have permission to access the managers' interface. In this interface, managers can create and verify user accounts and perform tasks for users to create or support proposals. The most common use of this functionality is by public workers in the institution's citizen service offices who can help citizens interact with the participation process.

  • SDG Managers: The software facilitates aligning the content of the platform with the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals Agenda as well as correcting the alignment of the content made by users. It also allows creating localized goals, as well as adding content to the SDG section.
