How do I enter polling postcards or a petition?

If you need to enter a lot of the same types of activities such as a petition, a stack of postcards, multiple phone calls, or survey responses, you will want to start in the Contacts module. (If you plan to attach a copy of a petition or postcard to the activities you're creating, you will first need to upload the document. Click here for instructions on uploading the document.)

  1. Start by finding a contact (or contacts) using the filter options at the top of the screen.
  2. When you see the contact(s) you are looking for, check the box in front of the contact(s), or use the "Select All" option to select all the search results that display on the page.
  3. Click the Create Activity button.SNAG-0031.png
