KC (they, Salem, OR)
14:27
KC (they/them) from Salem, Oregon (just chartered last month!). Our emails are all manual, which means they often don't get done right. The reduction in admin burden for that alone is a huge thing for us. Beyond that, we are working on an ecosocialist campaign and a school board campaign that would benefit a lot from Action Network.

Hey Anthony!
Sudip Bhattacharya
27:35
so when setting up events? who gets to see it? our members? we currently use band. I’m assuming this is connected to peoples emails? (Sudip)
John Prusinski
28:14
Same question as Sudip… is this email based, or website?
elisabeth
30:09
Can the link be restricted? Or is it open to the public by default?
Sudip Bhattacharya
31:03
awesome! thank you!
allie she/her Knoxville, TN
32:33
[off-topic] When is the next spoke training or will that recording be available?

I am emailing out the Spoke recording to tech contacts and chapter leadership tomorrow!
allie she/her Knoxville, TN
33:16
Yippeee! Thank you! This is all so exciting!!!!
elisabeth
37:13
As the National admins, do you have access to contacts we upload?
KC (they, Salem, OR)
37:21
When we add entries to our local list, do they get merged with the national Action Network list?If yes, is there an opt-out that the individual or our local admin can use?If no, is there an easy opt-in if people want that, or does the person or a local admin need to do that separately?
Zack Maril
37:29
If we are hooked up to the national account, can national keep our membership list in action network up to date?
elisabeth
39:01
My question is more the other way around, you could list chapter instances, does that mean you have access to _our_ contacts?
Sudip Bhattacharya
41:29
how do we create an account for this? are ones already available for each chapter set up? also, what are the advantages of using this? (I know these questions are mad wide so please answer when you feel is best).
John Krumm
46:44
Right now we just have two audiences in Mailchimp, Members, and Associates. I didn’t see how you do a simple member emailing.
John Krumm
50:05
Is there a way to view the member list and edit individual info?
John Krumm
51:06
But you can’t just bring up the member list?
allie she/her Knoxville, TN
52:18
If we are on the call will you do it automatically or are you expecting us to email you?
James Wood-Wheeler
52:39
My chapter has been using action network for almost a year now. Do we have to start over under national's umbrella? I don't want to loose all the data and work we have put in already
Chris Ludwig - WCTDSA He/Him
53:31
What if you are usning the free version?
Tracey Bushman
57:12
Which tag do we use to get on the Bernie Map?
James Wood-Wheeler
58:24
How much of a wall is there going to be between chapters? If national or another chapter makes a tag will it show up in my list?
Chris Ludwig - WCTDSA He/Him
59:23
Any word on Action Networks Canvassing tools yet?
John Krumm
59:34
When I import a member list or another one, can I tag them all at that point?
Chris Ludwig - WCTDSA He/Him
01:02:02

Sudip Bhattacharya
01:02:15

Jeff May (he/him, SF)

01:03:22
What about electoral campaigns?
Tracey Bushman
01:03:25
Thank you!
John Krumm
01:03:55
Looks quite good. A little intimidating at first. We need to find a tech person besides me…
Jeff May (he/him, SF)
01:03:55
like, I know we can’t coordinate with Bernie’s campaign
Zack Maril
01:04:45
Sounds good, thank you
Zack Maril
