When you import a list of phone numbers to Hustle, our product scrubs your list to identify and separate landline versus mobile numbers, and is configured to export that extra information easily so you can update across your data ecosystem. All of your textable mobile numbers are ingested and added to your designated group in Hustle, but we retain the information on all numbers, including landlines, to be available for you when you export your contact info at the group or org level.
Does your team want to separate out your mobile and landline numbers in order to Hustle the textables and phonebank the landlines? Here's how:
To make the most of your time and resources, we recommend taking the following steps:
- Upload your list to Hustle and use as usual to take advantage of the scale and ease of peer-to-peer text to maximize the number of people you can easily converse with and reach over mobile.
- Export your contacts list and filter your CSM by Column E to identify the landlines that you can plug into your dialer such as the VAN Dialer to target landlines for phone calls in order to make sure you are reaching the most people in the most efficient way.
- Another benefit here is that sometimes your volunteers will deeply prefer one mode of communication over another... if you are doing both you can make the most of your volunteer strengths and avoid duplication.
Note: if you import your list from VAN, using the VAN-Hustle MyList integration, you can also export the CSV from Hustle to see which numbers are landlines and mobile.
