How do I create a policy?

Most policies are created during Governance meetings, or through asynchronous governance proposals. However, if a domain is solely held by one role, then that role can create and update policies related to that domain at any time, without the need for a Governance meeting.

  • How to Create a Policy During a Governance Meeting
    To create a policy when processing a Governance agenda item, the Secretary would select the " Add/Edit Policy" and choose the " -- New Policy --" option.

The Secretary then enters all of the information in the requested fields and click on the " Accept Proposal" button.

The policy is now created and may be found in the "Policies" tab of the circle view.

  • How to Create a Policy on a Role's Domain
    If a role owns a domain, then any role-filler can add a policy on that domain.

    On the role's page, under the Domains section, a "+policy" will appear under each domain listed. Clicking on it will allow the role-filler to add a policy on that domain.

Fill in the title and body fields and click on the "Add" button.

Now "(1 policy) +" will appear in the Domain section. You can edit the policy or add a new one by clicking on it.
