Barbara Rosensteel
30:11
I have the MiniVAN app on my phone which I have used when canvassing for a specific candidate. Is that the same app that Indivisible is using, and where do the addressed and phone numbers come from?
Omaha Sternberg
30:14
I don’t have a mic, so can I ask my question via chat?
Jean Dittmyer
30:37
I have a questions about hubdialer
Betsy Smith
30:41
question: not a lot of time for organising for this weekend
indivisible nonpartisan michigan district 9
30:49
do you work off a q/a script?
Michael Johnson
31:44
Question... We want to capture the callee's issue but we don't have a method yet to include their issue in our VAN record. Will this change soon? I'm supposed to be able to edit the scripts, etc. in about two weeks. Really want to record the issue.
Omaha Sternberg
31:48
Question 1: my state, Washington, is asking the same kinds of question during canvassing. How can we Indivisible members do the canvassing without tiring voters out?
Barbara Rosensteel
32:13

Barbara Rosensteel
32:31
Never mind, I just remembered what it is
Jonathan Tong
33:07
Question: Is the Hub Dialer group for people who will just be phone banking to call folks out of state, and Canvassing with VAN just for folks who will actually be going door to door in those few states you listed at the beginning of the training?
Tim Liszewski
33:37
We may do some from Charlotte too.

Jean Dittmyer

With temps over 100 this week, we are phone banking.
Heather Borman
35:10
I missed it difference between HubDialer and VPB?
Kyle Aldrich
35:25
Hub Dialer - Predictive dialer, automatic calls
Kyle Aldrich
35:34
VPB - manual dialing
Kyle Aldrich
35:38
through VAN
Tim Liszewski
35:40
VPB goes through VAN, hub dialer doesn't.
Omaha Sternberg
35:41
Oh, Jean, that’s a great thing to think about…what the weather is going to be in your area.

For the person not able to see the Chat box, you might want to advise her to change her phone's orientation between portrait and landscape mode so she can see the menu OR to scroll the menu to the right.
Carolyn Lewis

Indivisible Gainesville has been using Van and I'm retired and so was several of our canvassers and it was easy to learn.

Because I’m just getting it started, I’m still in the initial stages. I have to get the plan set up before I can feel better. :)
Larry Behrendt
01:18:35
It went very fast. And I did not get assigned to my session until it was well underway.
