Elections Update Schedules and 1-Clicks


November 3, 2016

This release added elections update schedules and 1-clicks to our government products.

For Elections 2016, Leadership® Online launched a new series of tools, 1-Click Lists and 1-Click Alerts, to provide users with streamlined access to the most up-to-date post-election information available.

Click ‘View List’ to instantly see all of the contacts for that 1-Click List displayed on the Preview screen with current contact information to use now, as well as contact details for the new roles they will officially assume in January 2017.

Every time you view a 1-Click List, the Preview screen always reflects the most recently updated version of all information available in Leadership® Online that day.

1-Click Lists live up to their name: All the criteria needed to display each list is pre-set, so you can quickly find election results or monitor post-election developments without worrying about selecting tags or modifying settings.

All of the columns displayed on the Preview screen are pre-selected as well, chosen to provide all of the most relevant data elements for each specific set of newly elected officials and staff.

The results for each 1-Click will change each day, especially following times when announcement activity is at peak levels, such as the first few days after Election Day or when committee assignments are released. Refer to the Elections Update Schedule to know when certain updates will be reflected in Leadership® Online
