Anyone can download Reach and create an account, but the fun doesn’t start until you are added to a campaign. Reach is designed so that it can spread organically amongst your supporters, volunteers, or members. We achieve this by providing several different methods for adding users to your campaigns.
Note that for Reach Movement organizations with multiple campaigns, users get added to each campaign individually.
Adding Users Individually by Cell Phone Number
Any member of a campaign can add new individual users to that campaign. This is how we spread Reach to the farthest corners of our volunteer force as quickly as possible. After all, the more Reachers we have, the more IDs we collect!
To do this, there are “Add User” buttons located throughout the app:
- There is a button in the top right corner of the main home screen and search screen pages with a plus sign and a person icon.
- There is a button under Campaign Actions on the My Account screen labeled “Add User”.
- There is a button at the top of the person profile screen. You will only be able to use this button if you have permission to view that person’s phone number.
If you want to add someone to your campaign, just tap one of these “Add User” buttons and you’ll see our “Add User” pop-up.
Enter a phone number. From this screen, you can also decide whether the new person should receive a text message notification. That they have been added to the campaign. If you are a Verified User, Admin, or Owner of your campaign, you’ll even be able to decide which permissions the new user should have! More on User Roles and Permissions here.
Tip: You can also use this window to upgrade or downgrade the role of an existing user! Just enter their cell phone number and pick a new role and click add and their role will change accordingly.
When you’ve made all your choices, click “Add” in the top right. If all has gone according to plan, you will see a green notification that they have been added. The new user should create an account or login to Reach and check their Campaign Manager screen to see the campaign and select it.
Adding Users by Invite Code or Invite Link
When you want to on-board many people at once, adding them individually by cell phone number would be a bummer. That is when you’ll want to turn to Invite Codes and Invite Links.
From the admin section of the app, you can generate invite code which you can then share with folks who can enter the code or click the link and sign in to the web app to join your campaign on their own. More about that here.
This feature is only available for Reach Complete and Reach Movement subscriptions.
