Ok, a user receives a partnership request from another user and can either accept or refuse it.

Is there a word for that? I mean, a word to indicate the action of taking a decision about it without information on the kind of decision.

Accept, ratify, etc.. indicate a positive response while refuse, discard, etc.. indicate a negative response, I need something neutral/generic.


Some options:

Resolve, settle, decide, determine

Regarding resolve, the OED suggest as meaning:

  1. Settle or find a solution to (a problem or contentious matter)

  2. Decide firmly on a course of action.

Regarding settle, the OED suggests as meaning:

  1. Resolve or reach an agreement about (an argument or problem)

So both point to each other.
