What is Cold Storage?

Some of our clients don't need continued access to their databases once the election is over but are planning to run again and will use our software for a future campaign. Our Cold Storage option allows you to keep your data secure and ready for use, without paying an ongoing monthly fee.

Whichever product you're using, we charge 1 month's service fee to hold your data for up to two years. If you ever need access during that time, you can just give us a call and we'll reactivate your account, charging you only for the months you use it.

If you have questions about Cold Storage or any other data management options, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 888.217.9600.

HotTip - Create a Guest List for an Event

If you’ve been adding events into your BackOffice database, you might not know that you can associate guests with the event. By adding a guest list, you can track RSVPs and easily run reports for only those guests.

To add guest to an event:

1. Go to Add/Search > Event.
2. Search for your event.
3. Click on the Use button.
4. In the Guest List area, click Add.
5. A smaller box will appear. Type in the name of the individual under Guest Name. Click Find Guest.
6. Click Select next to the guest you want.
7. Complete the RSVP information if known.
8. Click Add.

Now you have the beginning of your guest list. Continue to add and update this information to produce accurate reports on the number of people attending your event.

If there is something you would like to see an explanation on? Let us know! It could be our next featured Hot Tip!

StaffPick - Live Mesh

This week’s staff pick is from Jeremy Geltman, our Marketing Coordinator and Newsletter Editor, who recommends Microsoft’s Live Mesh. In a nutshell, you can use this site to create a remote drive that you can access from any computer you set it up on. This allows you to simply click on the drive and access your files through the standard Windows interface, without having to collect files from the Internet and save them to a different computer. That means that you won’t need to carry a thumb drive. It’s free and easy to set up.
