Once you have searched for and identified a bill of interest, you can elect to track that bill in one of two ways.

  • Homepage. One of the quickest ways to track a bill is to click on the “TRACK” button that appears towards the top right of a bill name in your list of search results (while in card view) on the Plural homepage.

Once you’ve clicked on the TRACK button, you can then choose the Workspace that you would like to share the bill with so that anyone in that Workspace can join you in monitoring the tracked bill. 

  • Bill Detail page. In addition to tracking a bill directly from Plural’s homepage, you can also choose to track a bill from within a Bill Detail page.

How to view a list of your Workspace's tracked bills

There are two options for viewing the complete list of bills that are being tracked by you and others within a given Workspace.

To begin, towards the top left corner of your screen, make sure you are in the correct Workspace.

When you elect to track a bill, you will be automatically notified via email of bill updates, including changes to bill text, bill sponsors or bill status.

You can modify the frequency at which you receive email notifications for your tracked bill at any time.

How to un-track a bill

Untracking a bill will remove it from the list of tracked bills in your Workspace, and also stop you from receiving any future email notifications about that bill.
