Configuration

The Configuration module is the starting point for defining the xmLegislator session categories used in the various modules, and they are specific to a chamber. The categories include: members, groups or committees, security, subjects or topics, sponsor types, conferee types, legislation types, Bill/Resolution status, document types, and Calendar variables. While the variables in these categories can be changed, for the most part they are session static and will generally migrate from one session to the next. So, once they are defined and in place, they generally require very little maintenance, with the exception occurring in the member base at election time.  In addition to members, the Legislative staff is also included. From a security standpoint, each user of xmLegislator has a user ID and password and is assigned a role. Each role is granted create, read, update, and delete access rights to various system components, which provides a very secure environment. Members are assigned to groups. A hierarchical structure of subjects can be created allowing for their assignment to different document types.  Various sponsor and conferee types can be defined and different legislation types can be set up to allow for Bill/Resolution categorization. Different types of Bill/Resolutions, or other document types can be defined. Different Calendar types can be set up, sectioned by orders of business. They can also be linked to Bill/Resolution status so that Bill/Resolutions can be automatically pulled into the Calendar based on status. Bill/Resolution status can be used to define the location of a document in xmLegislator.  In addition, a status can have parameters allowing for dynamic selection when the status is used; for example, a status can have a Senator and committee parameters allowing for a selection for each parameter when that status is used. Statuses can also be associated to keywords for reporting or for access by external applications.
