A respectful discussion focused on facts.
Hierarchical vote enabling balanced views.
A strong decision based on consensus, with a good adoption.
Open Agora aims at providing an online tool for collective decision making.
Currently, Open Agora is a simple yet effective polling system for Slack (a powerful team discussion system that is used by thousands of companies all around the world).
In 2016, Open Agora will offer a standalone version that will enable anyone to create Agoras. These Agoras hold discussions, that evolve into a vote and finally produce an automated report. The generic workflow is the following:
Open Agora extends Slack with a polling system. It
/poll command (documentation/support), that lets Slack users
create polls in channels, to vote and to get the results as
in-line bar or pie charts.
We only require your email address in order to register our app to your Slack team (you may use a single address to register several teams).
Once you allow Open Agora to access your Slack team,
we will only configure the slash command
/poll for you. Thus, apart from what you type
using this command, we will not be able to read any
of your team information or channel contents.
