Software development stage: stable
Run an online advocacy campaign from your Plone site.

Megaphone makes it easy to build powerful online advocacy campaigns in Plone.


  • Letters to decision makers
  • Required and optional recipients
  • Save data locally
  • Save data to (requires salesforcepfgadapter)
  • Email letters to targets
  • Customizable thank-you letter to sender


No product is perfect. There are some important things Megaphone doesn't do (yet), including:

  • Matching of users to targets based on postal address
  • Delivery to targets who don't have a publicly-accessible email address

How it works

Megaphone builds on top of several fantastic Plone products to do its work without reinventing the wheel.

  • The heart of Megaphone is PloneFormGen, which provides the core form-handling capabilities.
  • Because advocacy letter is a fairly complicated PloneFormGen with lots of defaults, we've built collective.z3cform.wizard which lets us make a very user-friendly wizard for building out the advocacy letter. The wizard can be run and then re-run to let a user change the settings. More advanced users can directly edit the PloneFormGen fields and objects to create more complex setups.
  • Salesforce integration is via the Salesforce PFG Adapter and the underlying Salesforce Base Connector.
