Key Tips

As previously mentioned, in order for your Survey to import successfully, a survey answer page must be created within your Nation prior to the Ecanvasser Import.

To keep NationBuilder surveys in sync with Ecanvasser, create, edit and delete them in NationBuilder only. Don't use the Edit, or +New Question options in Ecanvasser, and do so via NationBuilder itself.

Please reach out to support@ecanvasser.com if you have any questions.
