Q& A session: AP friendly
9:00 am Stockholm, 2:00pm Bangkok, 6:00 pm Sydney, 8:00 Aukland
A chance to come and ask your questions, without needing to sit through a whole training.
Do you have questions now that you’re starting to do the work yourself? Or maybe you’ve been working with Nationbuilder for a while but you have a particular challenge and would like some help. Or maybe conversation and screensharing is just a better way for you to learn something than a helpdesk ticket.
We’d like to help you get comfortable with the tools we have that will help you to do your work!
Please note: It’s essential to RSVP for the Q&A session, as we won't hold the meeting if there are no RSVPs.WHENOctober 27, 2021 at 3:00am
