    I’ve been trying to use the CallFire/NationBuilder functionality, and I’m having some trouble. As far as I can tell, all CallFire will do is pull phone numbers from NationBuilder. There’s no reasonable way to get the results of the phonebanking surveys back into NationBuilder.

    After discussing with NationBuilder support, it seems like the following procedure is the only way for my NationBuilder database to be updated to reflect the results of CallFire phonebanking activity:

    1. Break my phone list into small lists within NationBuilder.
    2. Import one list into CallFire,
    3. Phonebank that list
    4. When the list is done, Batch Update the NationBuilder list as having been called.
    ***This is sufficient to see who has been called, but in order to see CallFire survey results within NationBuilder, I still must…
    5. Export the call results from CallFire to a CSV
    6. Edit the CSV so that the phonebank results fit NationBuilder CSV formatting
    7. Import the CSV to NationBuilder.

    And I have to do this every time I want my Nation to have current information on who needs to be called.

    Thanks for your response, but now when I log into Callfire, there is no Contacts tab. I found directions here: https://www.callfire.com/help/docs/getting-started/managing-contacts/importing-contacts but they appear to apply to a Callfire interface that no longer exists. Also, is there no way to push the Callfire results back into NationBuilder?

    Darren, CallFire now pulls in lists from NationBuilder through our API. To access this feature from an existing CallFire acconts, visit the Contacts tab, click Import, and enter the nation slug you’d like to pull lists from. An admin of the nation will have to authorize the app, then you’ll be able to pull and refresh lists from your nation.

    What makes this an App? How does it integrate with NationBuilder? Thanks.
