In the second step (Teilhabe) two formats are common. Participation can be done either by submitting an idea with a simple online form or by taking part in an offline workshop. While the form doesn't require a lot of resources from the participation management, its ideas often lack quality. The facilitation provided by a workshop on the other hand results in mostly high quality ideas, however, being resource intensive.
The concept of the Facilibot is to bring together the online automation with the facilitation by using a chatbot with AI features.
