Major Updates to Our Tracking System, Grassroots, and More!

Written by Emil Pitkin on July 12, 2019

It’s been another exciting month of growth at GovPredict. From new feature releases to press coverage, we’ve had a lot of fun!

We have a lot to discuss, so let’s jump right in.

Grassroots Updates

We have introduced two highly requested features to our Grassroots suite.

  1. Hyper-specific targeting of legislators receiving Grassroots messages
  2. Allow your advocates to append comments to a message that you write

Allow us to dive deeper into these updates below. We hope you are as excited as we are for these highly anticipated features.

Hyper-specific Targeting

Now you can include or exclude specific legislators as well as bulk include/exclude by committee, sponsorship or cosponsorship status, caucus, or state delegation. Both federal and state campaigns have this capability.

Append Comments

Our new append comment feature gives you middle ground between allowing a message to be fully editable and completely locking the message from edits. It ensures your organization’s message is told but allows room for advocates to customize it. You can find this option on the Compose Message page within a campaign.

Customization Options

GovPredict’s Tracking System Updates

Customer Stories

We would like to take a second to highlight the incredible work of our client, Sea Service Family, Foundation. They are making tens of thousands of lives better with a campaign they are running using GovPredict.

Thanks to SSFF, there is a high probability of passing HR 3409, a clean bill that authorizes the use of the US Coast Guard for the next 2 years.

It’s easy to forget that our client campaigns have such a major impact on so many lives. Consider this the first of many highlights, where we will reference clients doing an outstanding job and positively impacting society.

This blog post marks the end of another successful month at GovPredict.

We will have many more announcements of features and positive developments over the next quarter, thanks to aggressively growing and fostering a team of high-performance professionals, as well as new partners that are helping bring new clients into the GovPredict family.

Thank you for continuing to join us on our mission of changing the way you manage public affairs campaigns. If you are not currently a GovPredict client, see why our clients love us by requesting a demo.

See you next month!
