Locating prospective volunteers in Votebuilder
A good starting point for finding volunteers in Votebuilder is to take a look at some of the Activist Codes stored in the VAN identifying previous volunteers. While volunteers during a given campaign cycle are not necessarily shared between committees or campaigns, we do collect this information post election and store them in a set of activist codes - shared to all users in the van.
These particular codes are stored by year they volunteered and by level of activity that had recorded for that voter. For the most part we separated those we knew had participated in at least one recorded activity in the Van. The best volunteer prospects are those who participated in more than one recorded activity. Scheduled Only means we have no record of the volunteer completing a shift.
