Actions are practical steps that you will take to achieve the objective of a measure, organise your work and commit all parties (find out the difference between measures and actions here).
Actions do not directly result in financial or CO₂ savings but support the measure to which they belong. They are more practical and are allocated to team members. In this way, you make progress step by step and you will keep having an overview of the work and responsibilities.
Which things can you adjust in an action?
- Add or adjust a photograph. You will see a preview of the photograph and be able to zoom in and crop where necessary. A photograph having a minimum width of 400px produces the best result! For example, you can find beautiful photographs in this article or at Unsplash (what is more, you can use them free of charge)
- Status (Wait - Busy - Ready)
- Public description of the action, perhaps with images or video clips and links.
- Type of action
- Person responsible for the action (this need not be a user as is the case with a measure)
- Result of the action. These are not linked to the measures but nevertheless show the impact or the size of an action. You can enter “200 subsidies” or a group purchase of “150 participants”, for example. This figure is highlighted on the public page
- Whether that action is informative or participative. In this way, citizens can find out in which actions they can participate (on the public page)
- Importance of the action: the sticky actions continue to “stick” to the top of the public page
- Links to refer to more information, registration forms, etc. Choose a label for the button and paste your URL: finished! This link appears as button on the public page (if your action is public, of course 😉)
You can add more details in the other tabs:
1 - Where and when the action takes/took place
Every (public) action can be given one or several places on the map and be linked to one or several data. You do that under “Where and when”.
PS: the standard location for actions is: “Your city”. Do you have a more precise location? Then you can replace this location with a new address.
2 - Related measures
Every action can support several measures. Go to “Related measures” and choose the measures from the list, one at a time.

3 - Internal information
You can collect any background information, notes and files regarding the action under “Internal data”. This information is not shown on the public page.
For example, under (•••), you can still set or change a number of matters regarding communication:
- Add a translation of the action. For example, you can translate your actions into various languages and construct a bilingual or trilingual public page.
- Publish the action. If you post an action publicly, it will appear on your public page.
- Archive the action: by archiving an action, it will appear in grey at the bottom of your list of actions. If the action is public, it is also reflected in grey at the bottom. You can also restore actions in the same way.
- Removing the action.
