Broadstripes can automatically print individual question sheets for each person on your house visit list. As an organizer, you can use the sheets to prompt you and help you record answers to the questions that are most important to your campaign.

  1. To get started, access Custom house visit questions by clicking Settings > All settings in the upper right corner of any page.
  1. From the Project settings page, click the Reports > Custom house visit questions link.
  1. Use the form that opens to enter up to four questions or talking points that organizers should cover during a house visite.
  2. Click Save to record your work. A completed form might look like this:
  1. Now that the questions are saved, we’ll look at how to print the house visit sheets.
  2. Since Broadstripes doesn’t know who is on our house visit list, first, we’ll need to search for and select the people to include before we can print our sheets.

We’ll run a saved search to bring up our house visit list. If you don’t already have a saved search like this, you can learn about creating your own saved searches in the Create and save a search article.

  1. Next, we’ll select everyone in our House visit list search results by choosing all in the from the toolbar. (You could also select just a few people by checking the box next to their names.)
  1. Finally, we’ll select Custom House Visit Sheet from the Reports drop-down menu. This will generate a separate sheet for each person we’ve selected from the search results, and save it as a single PDF document.
  1. After you give your report a custom title and click OK, you’ll see a message explaining that your house visit sheets are being created and will download automatically.
  1. To view and print your custom house sheets, you have two choices:
      1. You can stay on the current page and wait for the download dialog to appear. When the dialog box appears, name your PDF file, choose where to save it and click Save to download the sheets immediately.
    1. You can leave the current page and download the sheets at a later time.
      If you choose to download and print your house visit sheets later, click the Reports link in the left-hand navigation panel. That link brings you to the Requested Reports index page.
