How CallHub should target activists for Voice and SMS Campaigns - By default CallHub will use Home Number as the Primary Number for Voice Campaigns and Mobile Number as Primary Number for SMS Campaigns. If your Activist data doesn't contain Phone Number then the Mobile Number could be used for Voice Campaign. Note: Please consider legal obligations in your countries on using mobile numbers for Voice Campaigns. Once you have configured the import settings, click on Save to retain them
You can now click on 'View and Import Reports'. This will fetch all the reports, events and also the tags that you have created from your account . If you're doing this operation for the first time, please wait while the import is complete.
- Once import is successful, you will be taken to the reports screen like in the below screenshot. Here you can search for any of your reports. Also if you make any changes to your ActionNetwork account (like created or deleted reports), you can sync your changes with CallHub by clicking on 'Refresh Now'
- Select a report of your choice and click on 'Import Selected'. This operation will take a few minutes and you should receive an email to your inbox once the import is complete.
- A new Phonebook gets created with the same name as your report and the activists will be added to this phonebook as CallHub contacts.
- CallHub integrates with Action Network in a bidirectional way. All the Action Network Activists that are contacted through CallHub's text messages or the Activists that respond CallHub's campaign through a text message can be tagged in Action Network. All activists that have been called through a voice broadcast or call center will also be tagged accordingly in Action Network.
When you create an SMS Campaign, you can set tags to be added for when the message is sent and a different one for when the contact responds. Choose the appropriate Action Network tags when creating the campaign.
In this example, when an SMS is sent to an Action Network Activist, they are tagged in Action Network as 'myactivists' and when they respond to CallHub's text message, they will be tagged in Action Network as 'tag'.
Set the Action Network tag for an activist contacted through a Voice Broadcasting in the settings of the campaign.
