Getting Started Texting

If You Haven’t Used Hustle Before

1. Take our Volunteer Training

Take our new volunteer training if you haven’t already done so.

2. Create a Hustle Account when Signing Up for a Workflow

Start by filling out our sign up form. You’ll receive a text from Hustle with a link to finish making your account. After you’ve set your password, you can download the app and login to see the workflow you signed up for. (If you don’t want to use the app, you can skip downloading it and use the Hustle website instead.)

Note: You’ll fill in this form a lot because we update the form with new workflows regularly. When you fill out the form, be sure to use the same email and phone number each time so Hustle knows to add the workflows to your account.

3. Check for Workflow Instructions

Check to see if there are any workflow instruction sheets for your workflow. If there are instructions, please read them in full before you start texting. These are very important, because they outline the special scripts, tagging, and opt out guidelines for that workflow.

4. Open the Hustle app and start texting!

You’re ready to go! If you get stuck, this Help Center answers many common questions. And if you can’t find the answers here, you can get help on Facebook or Slack.
