Features Designed For Your Needs

Powered by our comprehensive legislative and regulatory content, GovHawk's platform includes access to a wide-variety of platform features designed to help governments track and report on pending activity. Our most popular features include:

Research-Grade Searching

Use our advanced tools to search our comprehensive database of legislative and regulatory content. Searches can be based on specific keywords, phrases, jurisdictions, folders, dates, custom fields, and much more. Our custom modifiers and operators allow you to hone in on the content that matters while filtering out irrelevant items.

Accurate & Timely Alerts

Setup personalized legislative and regulatory alerts so you know when things change. Users can receive alerts as soon as they appear in GovHawk or schedule alerts to send at specific frequencies. Alerts can be sent to anyone including other departments and external audiences.

Flexible Organizational Tools

Create custom tracking folders based on specific issues, geographies, or any other criteria. Unlike other services, GovHawk is capable of automatically adding new items to your folders when they meet your specified criteria. All folders can be easily edited, sorted, filtered, exported, or turned into shareable reports.

Compare Bill Versions

Save hours by using our side-by-side bill compare tool. Unique text will be highlighted to indicate where bill language has been added or removed from each version. You can also search the comparison, toggle views, print, download, and share the comparison.

Scan For Relevancy

Use the link-to-keywords feature to quickly locate all occurrences of your keywords within the text of bills or register entries. Keywords are highlighted so you can quickly scan long documents for relevance and context. This can save considerable time when deciding if an item is relevant to your organization's interests.

Store Custom Content

Create custom fields to store unique content on bill, register, and legislator pages. Common examples include fields for issue classification, notes, analysis, position, priority, and more. Users can create a variety of field types and include those fields in reports to share with anyone inside or outside your organization.

Integrated Legislator Directory

Access our directory of federal and state legislators. This includes general contact information, bios, staff contacts (with contact information), committee assignments, district maps, and much more. You can add custom fields to legislator pages to manage your legislator interactions, record meeting notes, and track key information.

Custom Report Building

Create custom reports on specific folders, searches, or individual items. Personalize your reports by adding your logo, overviews, interactive heat maps, unique layouts, and more. Once saved, reports can be shared with anyone internally or externally. Web reports automatically update based on your report criteria.

Dynamic Sharing Options

Share your custom reports internally or externally. All reports can be exported (e.g., PDF, CSV, Excel), shared as web reports (public link or embedded into a website), and scheduled to send as emails. With web reports, you can enable front-end filtering, sorting, exports, searching, interactive heat maps, and much more.
