There are 4 permission levels in total: Campaign Manager, Campaign Staffer, Lead Canvasser and Canvasser,
Campaign Managers, Campaign Staffers and Lead Canvassers have access to everyone in the database through the mobile app
Canvassers, the individuals usually make up most of your team, have access to specifically assigned groups. They cannot access data that has not been assigned to them.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Does it work Offline? Yes! the app will work offline. We do recommend performing a manual sync once you gave regained connection to ensure all data updates within the dashboard.
- Why can I know see my data? It is possible you don't yet have a group assigned to you. If a canvasser has not been assigned a group then data will not appear. If groups have been assigned then you may have a filter applied. Clearing your filters will rectify this issue.
