electrr now allows you to open nominations for your elections, meaning candidates can provide their own details and manifesto so that the ero doesn't have to type these in separately.
The nominations system is only available on electrr unlimited.
TO enable nominations, make sure it's turned on in your system settings. You can access these by going to the admin dashboard and clicking 'Update system data'.
After enabling the option, any role you create or edit will have boxes to allow you to set the open and close of nominations. You can leave these blank to disable nominations for any particular role.
When you visit the edit page for an election, you can see a list of any 'pending' candidates - these are people who have nominated themselves but who you have not yet approved. Any nominations need to be approved by you before they will be displayed to voters as a candidate.
When nominations are enabled and open, you can direct people to your-subdomain.electrr.app/nominations so that they can see which roles are available and nominate themselves for them. Nominees are asked to provide an email address, which you can view before approving them in case you need to contact them. Please note that it is not displayed after the candidate is approved, and there is no way to undo approval of candidates (they can, however, be withdrawn).
Voters see no difference between a candidate who nominates themselves and a candidate who you add directly.
