About Ecanvasser

Ecanvasser is a full-featured canvassing and voter management platform for political campaigns and issue and advocacy groups. The solution empowers canvassers with mobile data collection and a dynamic dashboard that enables campaign teams to map voters to houses, build surveys, track casework and send email blasts. Administrators gain access to data analytics and an issue tracking dashboard.

Ecanvasser enables users to upload voter data to a smartphone or tablet, and allows direct contact with voters to respond to issues. Users can import their voter database in .XLS or .CSV, or integrate directly with NationBuilder. Automatic sync functionality syncs all data between devices once connected. Canvassers can segment the voter database, as well as understand constituencies and track progress using mapping and visualization features.

The platform’s People page allows campaign teams to manage voter outreach and organizations. Users can invite members to teams via email, and assign groups for different voter segments or geographic turfs. Team members can be appointed various roles with access permissions that suit their function, such as campaign manager or canvasser. Users can set targets for each team and track them in real-time with the canvasser tracking system.

Administrators can see results and key metrics in graphic format, while turf analytics help identify key areas. Custom field and survey analytics at a glance help understand voters in detail, including a 5-star reception rating system. The platform provides storage for documents and campaign materials such as images and leaflets. Ecanvasser’s issue tracker helps organize issues raised by voters, and enables users to assign them to various team members for follow up. Email blasts help advocacy groups keep in touch with voters to affirm their message.

    Pros

    I used this software and used list printed from Republican headquarters WHAT A TIME SAVER this software is. I went door to door for another campaign after losing in the primary. The other campaign did not use Ecanvasser Took me 3-4 times as long to cover the same area as it would have using Eanvasser!

    My experience with e-canvasser so far has been gold. I haven't had any issues using the software, the apps, or other administrative features. It has been incredibly useful in the field too.

    Pros

    The software is extremely accessible and easy to use. I really admire the quickness of data syncing from cell phones and tablets.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons, but would enjoy a phone-banking software included with the canvassing service too.

    Frustrating

    Frustrating

    Pros

    If it were working properly, I like the fact that it's a paperless option for canvassing.

    Cons

    The app is slow, crashes (to the point where we've had multiple canvassers give up mid shift), the map shows houses in different areas of the street, often causing people to have to backtrack, you cannot filter results by "notes" so the ONLY way to find notes input is to click on each name one by one (no one has time to do this), there is no way to cut turf and assign it through the app, when you try to print a paper list, there is no way to filter by "uncanvassed" or otherwise, and then the paper list asks for age and job, instead of the important results such as issues, email, requests window sign, volunteer, etc. When asking ecanvasser for help, all they can tell us is it seems to be working fine on their end. We've sent videos of the issues to no avail. We are not software engineers, we are trying to run an effective field program and this app is holding us back to our detriment.

    The greatest benefit is the ability to assign as many canvassers as we like, without additional licenses. Operationally, our teams have been able to move a lot quicker in canvassing voting districts. We also like the custom fields, allowing us to use this as our primary data source.

    Pros

    eCanvasser is focused on canvassing homes, instead of trying to be a be all end all of campaign operations. It is fairly easy to use. Hands down, customer service is outstanding. They respond quickly via email, and it is easy to talk to a live person. I like the control I have with the data, and unlimited custom fields I can create. The other big pro is their license model. I can assign as many volunteer canvassers as I want without an additional charge. All other services I found charge a license per user. This gives a budget tight campaign a lot of flexibility in using volunteers.

    Cons

    The data model needs some maturing. When creating groups, you have to select voters to put in that group. That's no biggy. But if you append the master database, the changes to a voters record do not aggregate to the record you placed within your groups. The Canvass Types are static. I would like to be able to create additional types, and select my own color. Canvassers also have to drill down too much to get to data they need at the door. Their are a few areas where it could be more intuitive. However, these are easily overcome with additional training. Overall, the product is great. We will continue using the product, and ensure our needs are input to developers for future enhancements.

    Response from Ecanvasser

    Hi and thanks for the feedback. We are currently addressing custom canvass statuses to give you more flexibility. As regards appending the master database and how this affects groups we are looking to develop Dynamic Groups also in the medium term.

    I am a huge fan of ecanvasser/walk. It is so easy to choose which house you're at and which person you're speaking with. The questions/surveys are easy to set up on the desktop dashboard and even easier to answer when at the doors on the app. The amount of time you save from not having to enter in data from paper sheets has been a God send. As well, it's very handy that the app updates in real time. So if someone is joining your team while out and about they can see which doors you've hit and which are left to be done. There had been some hickups while using the app and some bugs we've found. But the dev team has been so helpful and responsive it hasn't negatively impacted our work.

    I highly recommend ecanvasser.

    Pros

    The the I like most about ecanvasser is its ease of use. It's incredibly intuitive and easy to learn. Both from an admin side, where you're setting things up from the desktop dashboard, and in practice at the doors side where it's super easy to enter accurate data.

    Cons

    The one thing I don't like about the app is editing contact information for individuals at the doors. When in the android app it's difficult to find at first. Once you do find it, it can be incredibly frustrating to enter into the data.

    I also dislike that you have to press the confirm/check mark button to save any data you've entered into any field. If you aren't aware of that when you first get started it is very easy to think you're collecting data but layer find out none of it was saved.
