The question bullet types
This article looks at the Delibr features relating to decision making.
If you rather watch than read, here's a video summary of this article.
A common challenge when developing products is keeping track of all the questions and decisions that are taken. In Delibr, you are provided with two bullet types that lets you capture questions, decisions and rationale. They are great for making sure questions are not overlooked, that everyone can add their input and that rationale behind decisions are not forgotten.
1. Multi Option questions, and how to work with them
The most commonly used question type in Delibr is the Multi Option question. As the name entails, it’s perfect for questions that have several potential options.
1.1 Creating the question
Let's use the question "What protocol should we use for Google authentication?" as an example, as it could have multiple options.
Write the question in a bullet and end with a question mark. Once you add the question mark, the app recognises that this is a multi option question, turning the bullet into Multi Option question bullet.
You can also create a Multi Option question bullet by using the bullet menu. Click the bullet, choose Change type and Multi Option question.
1.2 Adding options, pros and cons
To add options to a question, create a sub-bullet (by hitting Enter and Tab). Once you've added your first option, you can add more by hitting Enter.
To add a pro or con to an option, add a sub-bullet to the option (by hitting Enter and Tab).
1.3 Making a decision
To make a decision, hover the orange box under the question. A pop-over will appear to the left, where you can choose one or more options and add additional decision info. To lock in the decision, press Decide.
2. Yes/No questions, and how to work with them
Yes/No questions are very similar to Multi Option questions. However, you cannot add options to them (for obvious reasons). After creating a Yes/No question, you will be able to add Pro’s and Con’s as sub-bullets (by hitting Enter and Tab).
Decisions are made the same way as with Multi Option questions.
