In this article, we will review how to use one of our newest Effort types, Hotspot. Hotspot Efforts allow you to build and create a contact list while canvassing at specific locations instead of whole neighborhoods.
Create a Hotspot Effort
To create a Hotspot Effort, start with the usual effort creation by clicking the "Plus" circular sign, which brings up the Effort module. Select Hotspot as the new type.
If you have an address list that you’d like to use, you can select one from the dropdown menu. This will generate Hotspot Turfs that are centered on the addresses from the list.
You will select a Survey from the dropdown menu. You can change this survey at any time before the launch of your Effort.
Under Hotspot Radius, you can choose a default radius for your Hotspots. The value given here is the default size of your Hotspots when you are creating Turfs.
Once you complete the configuration, click the "Get Started" button to initiate the Hotspot effort.
