Getting Data out of Reach

Campaigns can get the data from Reach into their Voter CRM/Database in several ways:

1) Manual Exports:

Any campaign admin can manually pull CSV exports from Reach using the Reach Admin Exports Screen and then bulk upload these CSVs into VAN. The CSVs are formatted for easy upload into VAN or other CRMs and it’s a pretty smooth process. This is the most common approach among out campaigns right now.

2) API-Based Real-Time Integrations

Thanks to our API-Based VAN integration, data can flow from Reach into VAN or EveryAction in real time. More information on that here. Additional integrations coming soon. If there is one you really want, please suggest it or up-vote it at

3) BigQuery Mirror

We set up a dataset in Google’s BigQuery product where all of your Reach data flows and is constantly updated every 15 minutes. This is by far the most comprehensive, expansive, and flexible way to access your Reach data. More on this here.

4) Automated Scheduled Exports

We set up scheduled automated exports from Reach which land in a Google Cloud Storage Bucket which can be accessed programmatically by engineers at an organization. The org’s data/tech team would then write some code to grab these exports and process them and merge them into VAN or Civis or Red Shift or any other database platforms the organization is using. More information on this here.

5) Webhooks

We set up real-time webhooks from Reach to an external service. This allows an organization’s tech team to get data out of Reach in real time, as responses are saved. Then, that organization’s tech team can process them however they see fit. 

Subscription Restrictions

Please note that Option 2 is only available to our Reach Complete and Reach Movement subscribers. Options 3 through 5 are only available to our Reach Movement subscribers and are especially well-suited to our larger organizations with their own tech teams. None of these options are available during a free trial.
