[Infrastructure] Current Functionality of Member Tool

Hey Ben,


I took a slightly different approach, and added it into the overview of organizations at https://member-tools.cabforum.org/memberOrganization. >From your description I think this is what you’re looking for?

It might be good I think to add an option to sort the table by a specific field. 


Small side-note: Participation is registered automatically using the WebEx API and thus should be pretty much up2date (F2F meetings are a bit of a different story).

Ballot voting tracking however is a manual process, and not yet done by each WG it looks like (Partially probably due to missing documentation and guidelines around this!)

I would like to discuss adding "participation" fields to the Membership Tool - something to indicate last meeting attended and last vote received. 


Just so we're on the same page, I can see that the Membership Tool does the following:


1 - Tracks ballots and each table for each ballot shows the voting organization, the member type, the vote (yes, no, abstains), and the representative who placed the vote. 


2 - Lists organizations in each of 7 groups (Forum, 4 working groups and 2 subcommittees) and lists "Active" Participants (and membership type - Issuer, Consumer, Interested Party, Assoc. Member) and "Active" Members (i.e. representatives) and their organizations


3- Lists meetings and calculates quorum, and each table for each meeting lists the attendees and their organizations. 


4 - Has a table of organizations and whether the IPR was signed and whether they are "Active". While each record for each organization lists its representatives ("People"), and lists the Forum groups that they belong to (see 2 above).  There is also a place in each record to indicate the URL of their signed IPR agreement.


5 - Has a table / list of people and the organization to which they belong, and indicates that some people are not "active" (presumably indicating that they are no longer with the organization).  Each individual's record contains their email address and under "Forum Membership" the Forum groups that they belong to (see 2 and 4 above). Under Voting Rights, it indicates the Forum groups in which they are allowed to cast votes.


6 - Finally, there is a table of Participant Types, which shows whether that participant type can vote and whether they can "log in" (presumably to the Wiki, although this setting does not make clear sense).  Clicking on a Participant Type produces a list of members of that type at the Forum level. 


I don't know where to begin a discussion regarding any enhancements to this current functionality, but it seems that there is the potential to create participation metrics from this data--especially with respect to 4, above, Organizations. For starters and for no other reason than that they are on top of the list, if I were to open the record for 360 Browser, I would like to see the record indicate the last time they voted and the last time they participated in a meeting.
