Committing your MiniVAN Data
Although MiniVAN makes data entry easier, the data still needs to be reviewed before it is added to individuals profiles. The MiniVAN commit page will gather all the syncs from a single canvasser into a single line. In this way, users who can review and commit MiniVAN data will be able to choose between seeing the Commit page in a summarized way, or a layout that displays each individual sync. These options are a more streamlined way to view data collected through MiniVAN before committing it into Liberalist.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a 5 minute delay between when a sync is made and when it will appear on the MiniVAN Commit Page
- On the My Voters tab Main Menu page, click on the MiniVAN icon. From the list that will appear, select MiniVAN Commit.
- You will see the MiniVan lists that have been sent back to Liberalist for your team.
- Review the data
- Check the contact rate: The contact rate will likely be in the 20% to 30% range. Anything higher may indicate that your canvasser was entering false or incomplete data.
- If everything looks good, tick the box beside the List Number and commit the data to the database.
The default setting for the MiniVAN commit page will group multiple syncs from the same list in a single line item. Please see image below. For example, in this list, user John Smith has synced the list “Poll 20” 6 times; it appears on the MiniVAN Commit list on a single line.
When users select the option ‘Show Individual Syncs,’ the MiniVAN commit list toggles to a view where all individual syncs, by list name, are displayed separately.
You can also see stats at the top of the MiniVAN Commit page. These stats include how many lists need to be committed, the total number of doors are in the uncommitted lists, when the last commit happened, and who committed the data from the most recent commit.
Always remember to commit your data from MiniVAN! Syncs will disappear from the MiniVAN Commit page after 90 days. Regularly review and commit your data into the system in order to have up to date information when you canvass!
Can’t find your list? Make sure you’re on the right tab (usually the My Voters tab). If you’re helping more than one team, make sure you’re logged into the right team’s Liberalist before going to the Commit page.
