About Priority Do Actions
💡 Priority Do Actions are automatically set to the five topical and seasonally appropriate actions.
However, you can customise your PDAs at any time! Keep reading to find out why it's a good idea.
From using a reusable coffee cup or spending less time in the shower, to avoiding unsustainable palm oil and donating clothes to charity.
This choice means there’s something for everyone, but it can also be a little overwhelming.
That’s why we recommend focusing your campaign by using our cunning Priority Do Actions (PDAs) feature.
Why customise Priority Do Actions?
- To make your programme more relevant – for example, if you’re running a programme across your halls of residence, you’re unlikely to want to encourage students to install solar panels. Why fill up space and confuse users by including Sun power in your list then?
- To support a defined focus - if your programme has a specific focus, it’s good for your Do Actions to reflect this. For example, a client used Do Nation as part of their Nutrition Week, so included only food-related Do Actions in their campaign.
- To keep your programme interesting and inspiring and maintain engagement - changing the priority actions every two month pledge period can encourage people to keep pledging.
Real life examples
In the build up to the UN Climate Conference, innocent drinks focused on carbon-saving actions, while Siemens focused on actions that reduce air pollution for World Environment Day.
Procter and Gamble focused on actions that are relevant for their business - washing at 30 degrees, taking shorter showers, recycling, etc.
H+K Strategies have run campaigns in January, and so prioritised actions around exercise and healthy eating.
Who can edit Priority Do Actions?
Pro and Plus editors can edit the priority Do Actions at any time to reflect their current priorities.
This can either be done campaign-by-campaign, useful if each team has different needs, or for all campaigns within a leaderboard at once.
Now you know why customising your Priority Dos is a great idea, read how to change your Priority Do Actions.
Where will people see Priority Do Actions?
