To apply one or more proposed changes to a publication and generate a document FROM the software, Propose Mode must be activated.
- Once logged in, select "Add New Proposal" from the mode toolbar dropdown.
- A Proposal's name should be general enough to include the nature of all its proposed Changes. For example, if a user increases the number of chickens in residential areas in one chapter, AND discontinues roosters from being considered a nuisance in another, the Proposal name may be broadly named “Chickens". TIP: Users may include their name within the Proposal's name to distinguish its creator.
- Proposal Names:
- are not to be confused with the Ordinance Number
- must always be unique
- are used solely as a reference for other associates within the organization.
- will NOT be applied to the document.
- Enter the Proposal Name and select “OK“ to apply or "Cancel" to exit the dialog.
- Once the desired Proposal is displayed within the mode toolbar, make the desired changes to the table of contents and/or language. All Changes, whether made in one level or many, affix themselves to the displayed proposal.
- A Proposal may be renamed or deleted by selecting the pencil to the right of the mode toolbar dropdown. Take special caution when deleting Proposals, as its Changes are not restorable.
How to work with a Proposal's individual Changes:
- All Changes affixed to a Proposal are shown within the "Proposed Legislation" area of a proposal's Document Creator;
- To delete a Change affixed to a Proposal, enter the proposal's Document Creator and select the "trash" icon to the right side of the Change.
- Proposed Changes within a level will be “locked“ in Live mode to protect them from being overridden. To unlock a level, its proposed Change must be deleted.
- Changes cannot be transferred automatically between Proposals
