You can now integrate your ThruText account with your PDI account!
This integration allows users to text voters from within the PDI program, as long as the user has obtained an account through
ThruText. This functionality does not replace the Texting File functionality seen in the Create List and Files page, but instead offers an alternative solution to simplify the process. This functionality is still in Beta, so if you experience any problems please report them immediately to either ThruText or PDI support.
You will first need to associate your PDI Account with a ThruText account.
If you are an existing ThruText client: You will want to initiate the request within PDI to have them send your PDI account information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use your existing domain name in the request.
If you do not have a ThruText account yet: We'd be delighted to introduce you to our platform and set you up with a demo to show you how it works. You can also email email@example.com to get more information. Then, initiate your request within PDI to set up your account!
Once PDI has sent us your PDI account information:
Once we have enabled the PDI integration, your account will have nine custom fields:
- PDI Unique ID
- Address 2
- Polling Location
- Polling Location 2
- Polling Address
- Congressional District (CD)
- Senate District (SD)
- Assembly District (AD)
You will also see an administrator user for your PDI integration. Do not delete this user or your integration will not process successfully:
From here, you will now be able to push your lists from PDI into a group in ThruText with the click of a button!
You can also bring your results back into your PDI account!
