The Democratic Workshop is a new and convenient way to
participate to a software product development.
We think our products are made for customers first, so it is normal
to let them express their needs and act more upon the development
process, by voicing their own grading or suggesting new
The latest, current or future improvements of our products are
listed in the Democratic Workshop forum, and you
can give your opinion.
By voting and arguing for (or against) a given item, you can
change its importance in the wish list, and therefore speed up or
slow down its actual development.
You can also suggest a still unlisted item, to make it appear in
How to vote?
From the Democratic Workshop forum,
participate to the poll located in each thread.
Vote "Yes" if this
feature would be of interest for your own use, and if you consider
it worth the work we'd spend on it.
Vote "No" if either this
feature wouldn't be of any interest at all, or if it would be
confusing, or if it can already been done easily enough by using
the current version.
Please if you consider not
to be concerned by the topic, or it wouldn't be useful for what
you are doing with the
software, just do not
In any case, if you vote, you are strongly invited to also
post a reply in the thread,
explaining your opinion and the reasons why you chose to vote "Yes"
Anyhow, a great number of "Yes" votes for an item just shows the
global interest of customers for this feature. A better value
incites us to implement it more quickly, but can't be a guarantee
we'll do it right now. It depends also on our own schedule, on the
development complexity and on the other features we decide to
include in the next version.
How to suggest a new feature?
Ensure first this feature is not already included in the current
program version (search the documentation and try to find it within
Then, from the Democratic Workshop forum, ensure
it is not already available in one of the workshop sections.
If it is not, create a new thread in the "Request for new feature"
section. Explain carefully and precisely what you would need, and
for what reason. Then get ready to receive comments, questions or
advices from the other users. Once everybody seems to agree, the
forum administrator will then create a poll for it in the workshop
section that fits the best.
