The Dot Voting app is used to participate in multi-option dot votes, including allocations and issue curations.
Dot votes are sorted into open and closed votes, and can be filtered by Status, Outcome, App and date range. By status, you can filter dot votes as open and closed. By outcome, you can filter dot votes as enacted, passed, or rejected. And by app, you can filter dot votes by use case, either to only view dot votes from Allocations (multi-recipient allocations) or from Projects (issue curations).
You can see information about your dot votes in the main view, before going more into detail on one particular vote. For each vote, you can see the app it's forwarded by, the description, up to two leading options, how much time there's left to vote (or if closed, the outcome of the vote). Once you've voted on a dot vote, you'll see a checkmark icon on the vote card.
In issue curations, you're voting to set priorities amongst a set of issues. Going into a curation dot vote, you can see the number of issues involved, the vote's status and current participation versus the threshold. Vote duration and participation settings are configured during installation. If a vote is currently active, you can click on a "Vote" button and set your dots on your preferred issues, and "Submit". You can change your vote as long as there's time remaining.
In allocations, you're voting to determine how much funds to disburse amongst a set of recipients. Instead of seeing the number of issues involved as in a curation, in this case you see the total amount that's being allocated, and in the results you can see the percentages converted also into their representative amounts. To vote, click on "Vote", set your dots to represent your preferred allocation of funds, and "Submit". You can change your vote as long as there's time remaining.
In the future, the Dot Voting app will support commenting. You will be able to add comments to a vote by clicking on "Comment". Comments can be edited and removed, but because they are set on-chain, even if you remove them they are never fully deleted records. You will be able to style your comments with markdown when typing or editing a comment.
