Where to start
We suggest creating separate broadcasters for different types of communication. For example, a nonprofit might have one broadcaster for the organization overall, another for the executive director, and another for the volunteer coordinator. You can then attach an email address, a Twitter account, a Facebook page, or any combination of these, to each broadcaster.
Broadcasters are completely separate from people in your database. You can set up a broadcaster so any point people in your nation will be able to send out blast messages to your nation, or so that only one person can send messages from a certain broadcaster.
All things related to communication live under the Communication tab.
Add a new broadcaster
To add a new broadcaster, go to Communication > Manage broadcasters and then click + New broadcaster.
You can configure a broadcaster with the following forms of communication:
- Receive incoming email
- Send email blasts
- Attach a Twitter account
- Connect a Facebook page
- Receive voicemails with a virtual phone number
- Send and receive text messages
In the Communication dropdown, broadcasters are displayed by importance. Importance of a broadcaster is defined as the number of email and text blasts sent. So, they will show by assigned broadcasters (those whom only you can send a message from) and/or permission (those you have permission to view), sorted by importance. The menu will display a maximum of 5 broadcasters, but clicking Manage broadcasters will allow you to access all of your broadcasters.
