User Reference Guides
Please see the below user guide and import reference guide to get started with Vamos.

Getting Started in Vamos: First Steps
Once your organization is licensed to use Vamos, Code the Dream staff will set up your primary user accounts. Those individuals can then add additional users. You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a temporary password to log in to vamosoutreach.com – those emails often go to spam, so be sure to check all possible folders. Please note that the confirmation link is only valid for 6 hours.
To familiarize yourself with the many features Vamos has to offer, watch the demo videos linked above, and regularly consult the user guide, also linked above.
Formatting your data will take a significant amount of time. Once you log in to Vamos, go to https://app.vamosoutreach.org/imports for the import page. For import instructions, click on NEW IMPORT and follow the instructions listed. The import guide (also linked above) will be helpful.
We recommend loading 10-20 camps in to start with so you can start playing around with how it all works, while you continue to format the rest of the data.
