Important Concepts

What is a slug?

Your slug is the first part of the URL when you are using the NationBuilder Dashboard, eg. ("mycampaign" is the slug in this case).

If you were sent an email from FieldEdge, it should have listed your campaign/organisation's slug.

Activating your NationBuilder account

You may have been sent an invite from NationBuilder to activate your account. Before logging into FieldEdge, you will need to click the link in that email and set your password. Once this is done, you can use that password, along with your email address, to login to FieldEdge.

If you were never sent an invite from NationBuilder, don't know your slug or password, please touch base with your campaign/organisation. In most cases, we do not have this information.

Accepting an invite to "manage a campaign"

If you received an invite to help manage a campaign using FieldEdge, you will need to accept your invite from FieldEdge. If you do not already have a FieldEdge account, you will be asked to create one. This login can be used across multiple campaigns and nations.

Accepting an SMS invite

If you received an invite to download FieldEdge via SMS, there is no action required to accept the invite. Simply login as explained here: Quick Start for Field Users
