Frequently Asked Questions
You can have unlimited users on your account. With Ecanvasser, you can manage all of your users in our member directory and simply activate them as and when necessary. We have 2 types of user licenses available on the Ecanvasser platform; Locked and Shared. A Locked License is assigned to a specific user, meaning that this member has access to the Ecanvasser platform at all times. This is recommended for members who need access on an ongoing or regular basis, especially managers or staffers. A Shared License allows multiple users to access the Ecanvasser platform, based on the number of available shared licenses.
Is there an additional cost for inviting users or admins to Ecanvasser?

Can my team members use the app if they are offline?

What happens when my 7 day trial has ended?
When your 7-day free trial has ended you will be automatically charged based on either the plan that you selected when you created your Ecanvasser account, or a different price plan based on the number of contacts that you have imported into Ecanvasser during the trial phase.
