It's important to report weekly actions at least once every 10 weeks. After 10 weeks of not reporting the weekly is assumed to be discontinued. You can re-register the same way you registered for the first time.

Registering (Reporting for the first time)

If your action has never been registered before, register your strike here. https://fridaysforfuture.org/action-map/register-report-strikes/ It could take a few days before it shows up as registrations are processed manually. You are done, thank you for registering. Remember to check the map after a few days to see that your pin has been added. If it’s a weekly action don’t forget to report regularly.
You can remove your registration anytime you like using the same form, using the "Remove me" option in the "Registration Consent" question. The remove me option is there for GDPR purposes and will fully remove you from the system, including historical actions, for all other options we recommend joining the Map-Count Slack channel, how to do this is described in the contact us section.

REPORTING VIA gamechanger

1. Go to the https://www.gamechanger.eco/action/start gamechanger page , and search for your town using the "Location Search" box in the top right, press "Search" when you've entered your town name.

2. Some cities have multiple locations, if so you’ll end up on a page looking like below, then choose your location. If not, you can continue with item 2.

3. Press Report on Event

4. Set the date, how many people were there (participants), the organisation that did the action and a URL to that action, like a tweet or a facebook post.

5. Press “Submit Report”

6. Check your report shows in the list.

Now you’re back at the page for your location, I recommend making a bookmark of the Gamechanger page if you’re a regular reporter. Then next time you can do Reporting The fast way

REPORTING FURTHER HELP

If you need any further assistance reporting on the map please contact us, or join a reporting support group on a social media. We can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Check the "Contact us" section for contact details.

REPORTING FOR SOMEONE ELSE

Reporting for someone else is basically the same way as reporting for yourself. There are a few minor exceptions.

You start from the top of “Via the map” or “Via the lists”, to find that person's reporting page in the Gamechanger. Things start to change in step 2 of “Via Gamechanger”. In step 2 check the latest report, and that it’s another date than the day you want to report for, If the date is not yet there you can add the report. In the next step, if you don't know the organisation, set the organisation to “FFFMapCount”, this is a tool on how much self reporting is being done, and how much is reported by map support.

If you are a map support volunteer reporting:

After you're done go back to the map, by clicking the globe icon, copy the link of the map you end up on. This link is the direct link to that location, providing the person with an easy starting point. Let the person know their work is reported and include the link you just copied. Also include a link to this webpage (https://actionnetwork.org/groups/map-count-reporting-manual)

AMPLIFYING

Amplifying is a great way to help other activists from around the globe. A simple share or retweet can help a lot. This page provides a great starting point https://www.gamechanger.eco/action/start/latest_reports

Known issues

A location may not show up in https://map.fridaysforfuture.org/lists. This is due to a registration issue in the system. If you have reported a strike for your location and you can't find it in this list please let us know by contacting us.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAP COUNT VOLUNTEERS

Are you not a volunteer yet and would you like to become one, check the "Contact us" section. Sign the Vision and GDPR forms, and contact us via e-mail or social media.

When using the override sheets to change information for existing strikes please keep in mind that a date format must always be in year(4 digits)/month(2 digits)/day(2 digits), example: 2021/12/31. When copying dates the drag and fill function will increment the date, when a copy of the same date is desired use copy and paste.
