While Ecanvasser is first and foremost designed to allow multiple canvassers in the field to campaign simultaneously via our apps, with direction from campaign leaders, it is also possible to canvass directly from the Contacts tab on your Ecanvasser dashboard.
This can be done from a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile accessing Ecanvasser via a traditional browser.
There are a number of reasons why this might be considered:
From a tablet, in the field:
- The individual directing a canvass may wish to have a broader overview of exactly how the canvass is going, whilst also canvassing themselves
- Importing written records: From the Lists tab of the Database, it is also possible to export a Walk List for canvassers who may not have access to a smartphone, you can then import the information as outlined below
- From a computer: Phone Canvassing
Canvasses are set up in the exact same manner as canvassing via the mobile apps (most likely involving the setting up of Lists), however, reporting would now be done directly via the Contacts tab.
Any updates or changes can be performed by selecting the Quick Icons using the edit action using the pencil icon and canvass action using the clipboard icon.
