What's a release?

Simply put, a release is a package of software updates consisting of new features and bug fixes along with new content.

New Features

  • Lobby Meetings Logged Through Action Tracker. Moving forward, lobby meeting notes will be logged in CCL's Action Tracker. To log your team's meeting notes, coordinate with your Congressional Liaison and designate who will be using CCL's Action Tracker via Log An Action > Contact with Legislator > Lobby Meeting. The questions that the tracker asks are the same prompts that the CCL Meeting Minutes Print-Out provides lobby teams ahead of time. For more information, see the Using the Action Tracker Training page.

To access your team's roster click on the left-side "Admin" menu option in your group, then click on the "Team Roster" link that will appear once in your team's Admin pages (see image below). Once in your team's roster you'll be able to sort, filter and export your team's membership information as highlighted below.
