How to import your VAN Survey Questions

This ThruTalk guide will review how to map your script using VAN survey questions imported from your VAN instance. Importing from VAN at script creation will allow you to add your VAN survey questions and answers directly into ThruTalk scripts. 

NOTE - Before using this feature, you must complete the setup process for your ThruTalk VAN integration.

Step 1:

To begin creating your VAN integrated script ("VAN Script" for short,) select the committee (MyVoters or MyCampaign) that your list(s) reside in from the "Create New Script" drop-down and choose a name for your script.

Once you click in the Survey Question field, your committee will populate Survey Questions in the Script Builder. The questions are ordered by cycle year in descending order and then by the Survey Question names A-Z. Only the Survey Question text will be visible, however.

Step 4:

The survey responses connected to that VAN question will populate in the "Survey Responses" section in the script question. Click "Save" to confirm your question setup.
