Is there a Vote Builder // VAN users group? It would be useful to share information, tips, discoveries, and--yes--woes. It's a powerful, flawed, tool, and we need to use it better.

    I don't see one. You could start a group.

    I use Vote Builder and MiniVan at an intermediate level, I might be interested.

    I'm not currently involved with the other NGP/VAN functions however. Our WA Leg. Dist. Democratic org. uses it as a back-office tool, but I don't need access to it to do the things I do.

    Hello, and yes, sounds like a good idea. Timely, considering where we are in the election cycle -- great plan to get trained up now. If you don't mind, I'll pass along your query to Chris Reeves also, who might help boost interest in such a topic with a Nuts & Bolts post about it, whether you create a group devoted to this area of interest or not.

    If you need some tips about setting up a group, please let us know. It's a relatively straightforward process, but no doubt there are some elements that are less than transparent the first time through.

    Thanks for asking.

    Thank you. And thank bleeding blue. I could do a short diary, and if can be included under the Nuts&Bolts aegis, it might get more eyeballs. The real value will be in the comments and in getting people to use the tool.

    Thanks. I'll plan to do a short diary, and start a group; most of the group will already be more skilled than I am--but I've been in those groups before....

    Sounds good. We'll keep an eye out for them.
