Team is an app, created by Tuesday Company, that organizes volunteers for friend-to-friend canvassing. Team can help campaigns contact voters, collect information about who supports them (get IDs!), and promote their message on Facebook through volunteers’ friend networks.
Here's how it works: Volunteers can download the Team app for iPhone or Android and join the campaign. On the campaign side, Team has an online administrative portal where the campaign can set tasks for those volunteers, monitor the results, and collect lists of people to follow up with.
The app tracks the status of assigned volunteer tasks so that organizers can check in on any incomplete outreach. There are 3 types of tasks a campaign can create and assign to volunteers:
- Share a post on Facebook
- Have 1-on-1 conversations with specific asks and targeted lists of contacts/Friends
- Report answers to those conversations
Additionally, Team integrates with VAN. You can upload a voter file to define the voters you want to reach, then simply match the voter file against users’ phone contacts and Facebook friends. The VAN integration includes integrating Survey Questions. Up to three Survey Questions can be included and answered in any conversation prompted by the app.
