Adding a new contact or contact file

During the course of a campaign, more data may become available, and you may wish to upload a new Contact File.
Ecanvasser can facilitate this, and new Contact Files can be uploaded in the exact same manner as the first.

However, it should be noted that if the data in your new file conflicts with that of in the existing file; your old data will be over-written with the new. This could potentially result in you losing out on information that has been updated in Ecanvasser, such as canvassing, or issues that have arisen.

That said, if you manually remove such duplicates prior to upload, no such issue should occur. Neither will issues arise if your contacts have appropriate Contact ID.

If duplicates present themselves you can use the de-duplication tool to remove those contacts.

If you have any questions you can message use in app or email
