Created quickly: Register of nominators
To create a register of all nominators on the nomination platform, click the “Nominators” tab in the Online Voting Manager. You now have two options: Either you create the list of nominators manually, or you simply upload the register as an Excel file.
Two paths to the goal
Uploading the register
Especially if there are many of them, uploading a list of nominators is a good idea. Click on the gear-wheel icon and then on “Import”. Here you will find our practical Excel template, which you can use to set up your register in no time at all. You decide which nominator attributes are visible in the register.
To enter the register manually, all you have to do is enter the e-mail addresses of the nominators into the fields provided. Click on the gear-wheel icon and then on “Attributes” and you can add further columns to your list, e.g. first name and surname of the nominators, or a membership number.
Setting the ID
One of the attributes in the register of nominators is the user ID, which combines with the password generated by POLYAS to form the login data for accessing the online nomination. For example, select the e-mail address or the membership number of the nominator by clicking on the circular icon in the corresponding column. The system automatically marks the selected attribute as a required field. POLYAS recommends the use of a separate ID for each nominator.
Feature “Search candidate list”
Unless you have booked the "Search candidate list" feature from our POLYAS Support, you have to mark some attributes in the register as searchable. On the “Nominators” tab, click “Attributes” and use the “Searchable” column to mark those attributes that nominators should be able to search. We recommend that you mark the attributes “First Name” and “Surname” as searchable. More about the feature here >
Further functions of the nomination platform
The “Export” tab allows you to download the completed register of nominators. If your online nomination has voter groups, you can create these using the “Voter groups” tab. More here >
