When your supporters are taking action in an Effort, they'll normally start at the Effort's landing or hub pages. These public pages allow supporters and members of the public to see the full extent of the Effort campaign, including high-level stats about the number of campaigns and signatures that are included in the Effort. Organizations are welcome to use either of these pages, and both are created automatically for each Effort. Your choice about which page to use may change based on the intended audience and how you wish to present information about your Effort. However, please note that if you're planning to recruit local leaders, you'll need to send those potential recruits through the landing page.
Please note: the Effort's landing page is not the same as the Landing Pages feature. The Landing Pages feature is separate, though similar, to Efforts, and Landing Pages also have their own landing and hub pages.
Effort's Hub Page
The first public page for your Effort is the hub page. To view the Effort's hub page, go to the org admin homepage > Efforts > name of your Effort > click Hub Page.
This page will list all of the campaigns in your Effort that have been moderated to good or awesome. (The order of petitions on this page can be changed in your Effort's settings.) Additionally, this page includes your Effort's description, a search box for visitors to find specific campaigns, and (optionally) an Effort-wide signature and petition count.
This lookup page may be useful if your Effort is not location based (e.g. the location of the decision maker and/or petition signers is not the primary differentiator between campaigns) or if you want to show an overview of the Effort's campaigns in list form instead of relying on the map of campaigns to show the scope of the Effort.
Effort's Landing Page
The Effort's landing page – sometimes called its map page - is the other public page for your Effort. To view an Effort's landing page, go to the admin homepage > Efforts > name of your effort > click Landing Page.
On this page, the campaigns included in the Effort are represented as markers on a map, with clusters denoting areas with multiple campaigns. The search box on this page allows supporters to find a campaign near them, and the page includes basic information about how an Effort campaign is run along with an Effort-wide signature and petition counts.
What are the differences between landing and hub pages?
|The top of the page includes a search box and Effort progress stats. Unlike the Landing Page, the hub page includes the Effort's (optional) description and its (optional) image. Petitions are shown in a list.
|Petitions are shown in clickable map and visitors can also use the search box to search for their location. Effort progress stats are shown on the page. The top of the page can also include (optional) landing page welcome text and the sidebar includes a brief introduction to the templatized campaign model
|By default, users CANNOT create new campaigns or become leaders of existing campaigns from this page.
|If the effort is set up to allow member leadership, then users will be able to create new campaigns and/or become leaders of existing campaigns from this page only.
|Signing a Campaign
|Users can click a campaign from the list or enter a search query to filter the list of campaigns. Upon choosing a campaign, they'll be brought to the campaign's signature page.
|Users who enter a search query are shown a results page which allows them to become a campaign leader (depending on settings) or sign the campaign. Clicking a petition marker on the map will also lead to this results page. From the results page, if the user clicks the button to sign a campaign, they'll be brought to the signature page.
Next we'll look at the member experience of efforts.
