How Swae Works

What this video for the basic functionality of the Swae platform

Quick orientation here on the far left side of the platform, you have the platform navigation buttons from your feed to the different missions that exist, the decisions page where you see what decisions have been made.

And if you have administrative access, then you see insights here in the left bar.

At the top right you have your personal settings, this is where you can set the platform language to whatever default you want. It defaults to English
This is where you go to update your profile, add a picture, change your username, change your handle and so on.

Is there any proposals that you bookmarked for future reference? You can go here to the category of categorize them and review them any, and all activity that you’ve sort of generated on the platform will be aggregated under this tool here under this tab site.

And, uh, if you’d like to change any of your notification settings or other settings, then you can go to this tab, the settings tab, and do that.

Uh, we have a great, uh, you know, notification bar, uh, in place, uh, and a helpful search bar. So if you’re looking for specific keywords or very specific, um, proposals, this is where you’d go into and sort of type that in, and we’d run a search through the platform to find the content you’re looking for.

So, uh, very briefly on the very top, uh, part of this, uh, this page, which is your feed, you have the missions and the missions are like the big challenges of the big questions that are being asked, uh, and what we’re trying to crowdsource solutions to from the community, from the stakeholders.

Uh, at the moment it looks like there’s six missions, uh, but the core missions, uh, on this sort of instance of sway really have to do with funding.

If you’re, uh, looking for, uh, $40,000 per project, this is the round one, pool B, uh, then this is the mission that you would sort of click into and create a proposal for.

If you’re looking to sort of up the ante and apply for more funding for your project, then this is the mission that you would be clicking into.

This is the around one pool, a mission. We have a couple of other missions, uh, sort of above this as well, asking, you know, how can we improve this way platform and, uh, Yan and his team are asking, uh, you lovely folks, how can we improve the entire funding program, uh, of things that are needed that, so if you have ideas or suggestions on how either of these things can be improved, then please all, you know, constructive feedback is welcome and it’s taken very, very seriously by both sides of the team.

So, uh, let me just show you what the mission page looks like, and, you know, we’ll go from there. Uh, so I just clicked into the project under $40,000.

It looks like it’s not open yet for, uh, for, you know, um, proposal generation, but, uh, it looks like, uh, in fact, Yeah, it looks like it’s not open for proposal generation yet, but, uh, in, in this page, you get to see, you know, the title of the proposal of the mission you got to see who created this mission to start and stop times of the mission, any goals associated with it, if there are any FAQ’s, uh, if there’s been any engagement so far, and if there’s a leaderboard, uh, sort of highlighting the activities on this mission, if you want to get an idea of all the missions that are available, you can also navigate to it from left side here, uh, where you see the six different proposals, Uh, so six different permissions.

So, uh, let’s go to, uh, a, another mission. I think there are a few that actually have proposals in them, and it would be nice to see What’s sort of going on.

So Yan created this mission saying, you know, how can we improve the deep funding program? Uh, and you know, uh, a few folks have said, um, set up a few different missions to set up a few different proposals here.

And, uh, you can just sort of, you know, if you want to browse in and you can sort of go in and see what proposals are there, Uh, see the, the content of that proposal You can tell in this case it’s done has, uh, you know, suggested an edit to this proposal.

Uh, I can do the same, why or why not Associated with, you know, something like this, if I would like, I’m not going to, but, uh, and also below here, you get to sort of, uh, debate the pros and cons or the strengths and weaknesses of the idea in a, in a digestible format.

Uh, so anyways, uh, this is sort of what the proposal layout is like, uh, to vote. You simply come to the bottom and you drag your slider from right to left, uh, sort of expressing the degree to which you like or dislike this proposal.

It’s not a binary. It’s not a, you know, yes, no. Uh, we believe we’re humans and we have a lot of emotions and we’re trying to reflect a sort of more true sentiment that people have around ideas using a spectrum, uh, versus a tick box of yes or no.

So that’s how it works. Uh, once you submit your vote, please note that it is a final vote. You can sort of anonymize yourself in this process, uh, but you can’t change your vote after you’ve voted, unless the substance of the proposal changes.

If the substance of the proposed proposal changes, then the vote, uh, can be reissued by all folks that are voted on, on the specific proposal, uh, without that happening then, uh, your vote is final and you’ve got to sort of stay behind what you, what you say.

So I’m not going to vote here because I haven’t really read anything. Uh, but that’s how you would vote.
