Update Supporters and Campaign

The Updates feature allows you to post public updates to your campaign. In addition to having these show up on your campaign, you have the option to also post them to social media and send an email to your supporters.

You can find Updates within the Campaign Editor. (Click Campaigns > Edit this Campaign > Updates.)

Add an Update (1)

In Add New Update, you can add an update to the campaign. Once an update has been created, you can save it as a Draft and see it in the Drafts (3) section, or you can publish and later view it in the Published Updates (2) section. There's also a Deleted Updates (4) section in case you ever need to go back to an update you have deleted. 

To add an update, you can pick the date to be listed on the update, set a Title, and in the Body area enter the update. You can also use the rich text formatting tool bar at the top, and add images or videos.

Email an Update to your Supporters

Before hitting "Save to Drafts or Publish" you will have the option to email-blast this update to your supporters as well. On the bottom right you will see a toggle to Email This Update to Your Supporters When Published.  Toggle to Yes if you want to email the update to everyone who has participated in this campaign. 

Don't forget to hit "Save to Drafts" or "Publish Update" once finished!
