Script results can sync to any version of VAN including NGP, Votebuilder, Targetsmart, AmericaVotes, EveryAction, SmartVAN, and LAN.
There are four steps to get your sync running:
- Get an API Key
- Update Reporting Settings with API Key
- Add Canvass Results to your script
- Map your question answers
Get an API Key
In order to sync with VAN, ThruTalk will need an API key, which is a specific code that works as a login/password to your VAN Committee for our system. Check here for instructions.
Update Reporting Settings with API Key
On the admin console, Reporting Settings, use Create & Use New Reporting Method to name your API Key, designate the type, and enter the API Key.
The "Default Starting Question" answers, other than "Talking to Correct Person" are already pre-set to sync with your VAN canvass results with no further setup required.
When setting up a question in your script, add your answers and then select a Survey Question from the search box and/or an Activist Code from the Van Activist Code search box. Just start typing in the boxes to filter your options. See this guide for more info.
Example: Selecting a survey question and answer
Save your question and your script and that's it! Your VAN sync is now successfully set up and live!
NOTE: Your Canvass Results, Survey Questions, and Activist Codes will be synced back to your VAN overnight and you will receive an email with a report on the sync including totals, caller details, and any free response answers or contact widget usage details.
