why is phone number not a core field?
I see you are using gmail - does this work okay? I understood its best to use email address a connected to website.
is it fair to say tags are more for noting info about our relationship with activists, and custom fields are more for noting info about the activists themselves?
Is there an easy way for current contacts to update their info?
Any best practices to simulate hierarchy in tags? Can we search for parts of tag names?
does capitalization matter?
I’m confused about the relationship between the question and custom field.
If you hide a field, can you create a new field with the same name as the hidden field?
What’s the best way to indicate which emails a person should get? (Newsletter, action alerts, etc.)
Each time I upload data to a list, the system creates a new list with the same name. So, I end up have several lists with the same name with different number of contacts on each upload. Am I doing something wrong?
If you upload data to a field that is already populated, but with different data, will the new data overwrite the old?
If the activist data includes data provided to another organization, but you want to update data (new phone number), the system won't let you, right?
Can my organization run multiple groups (say one for phone bankers, one for texters) so that activists can subscribe to different groups? Or are we confined to one group per organization?
Is there any way to see the list of all activists in one window?
Bahman: I know that you can use reports to pull up a list of all activists. But I don't know of a more direct way.
Thanks Raymond. I am used to MailChimp list, which you see the whole list and click on any contact to edit it.
can you change or eliminate any of those fields?
You said there are more advanced resources, could you include in the follow up email?
Curious to hear about Salesforce integration when it comes to contact data
Within our organization we have multiple sub groups (housing, living wage, healthcare), within those groups we then have volunteers, supporters, etc. How would we create those multiple levels? It seems that is where Raymond was referring to multiple groups being useful.
Also where can I get information in finding out how the people we have in action network are interacting with our facebook page?
The confusion arises with someone who would be a volunteer with the healthcare group but just a supporter in the housing. Would that get messy?
Okay, that helps a lot actually, thank you
Can you send the information for the facebook integration?
I found this very helpful. Thank you.
Thanks - very helpful.
Thank you Amy.
