lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, this is fairly urgent15:44
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, not sure15:44
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, ok, let me try locally first, i can't remember how deleting works15:44
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay, i'd like to give them an answer by 4:3015:44

*** mjsir911 has joined #novawebdev15:47
*** mr_german has joined #novawebdev15:48
mr_germanreplaceafill, ready!15:49
replaceafillmr_german, give me a few minutes, i'm in the middle of something urgent15:49
mr_germanreplaceafill, sure!15:49
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, let me know if my answer makes sense15:52
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, just a warning15:52
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, alright15:52
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i only see a "closed" election in their data15:53
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, as far as i remember you cannot change the voters list after the election has been closed15:53
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i'm not sure if they plan to "reuse" what they used for testing15:54
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, but if that's the case you should warn them that's not possible15:54
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i mean, reusing closed elections15:54
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay15:55
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, I understand. If they are trying to simply change the questions and voters of the old election that cannot be done15:55
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, maybe it shows as closed because of their dates15:55
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i havent looked at their helios instance15:56
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, maybe they just set the start/end times and that's already passed15:56
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, there problem is not deleting voters though15:56
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, *their15:56
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, it is deleting a candidate15:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, oh15:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, sorry15:57
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, which means they would have to change a question15:57
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, np15:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, change a questions15:57
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, is that possible?15:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, no15:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, the ballot has been frozen15:58
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, suggest to "Copy" the election15:58
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay, so they will just have to create a new election15:58
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, yes15:58
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay16:00
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, is the test instance still running?16:00
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, the one I was using before?16:00
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, no, that server got deleted16:00
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, accidentally16:01
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, oh yes, I remember16:01
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, in my testing planning i included setting up a new one16:01
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, any way for me to easily test? so that I can give good advice?16:01
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i can give you access to my local instance16:01
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, hold on16:01
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, I don't know how they could easily "copy" for example16:02
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, or what you mean by that exactly16:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, there's a Copy button below their current election16:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i can screenshare if you want too16:02
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, yes please16:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, you have admin on their instance too, right?16:02
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, I don't have my mic at hand though16:03
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, actually yes I believe I do. i'll go through my emails16:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i can resend it if you need to16:03
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, if convenient please do. 16:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, it's at the bottom16:04
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, Votin URL16:04
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, got it. yes i remember this. Okay. thanks Douglas. I can take it from here16:05
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, cool, sorry again for getting confused about the problem :)16:05
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, "member" sounded like "voter" :P16:05
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, no problem. we figured it out. I was confused by it a bit a first as well16:06
replaceafillmr_german, ok, ready16:06
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, ping me if you need something else16:06
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, great. Thank you.16:06
mr_germanreplaceafill, ok16:07
replaceafillmr_german, calling16:07
*** lelkneralfaro has joined #novawebdev16:15
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, they created a new election. thanks again.16:17
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, great16:21
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i'm not sure if you've seen this before, but it'd be a good starting point for helios training material:
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, "1.6 Freezing the ballot"16:56
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, feel free to edit/improve16:57
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, thanks for putting that on my radar. 16:57
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, sure16:57
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, it will definitely be helpful to have instructional material16:58
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, yeah, helios is the one who lacks user docs the most16:59
