• Donation v2 page and secure connection URL improvements

    Update

    We've improved donation V2 pages so that when a donation fails, the amount and frequency selections are retained on the form.


    Update

    When navigating to pages that require a secure connection (like donation pages), the URL will now always be the custom domain URL instead of "<slug>.nationbuilder.com", as long as SSL is enabled on the site.

  • New filter, occupation field display and blast confirmation modal

    Update

    We added the Date tagged filter! You can now filter for signups who received a specific tag within a date range.


    Update

    We updated the Occupation fields to display consistently across List View and Single Person View.


    Update

    We added a pop-up window if "All" recipients are selected for a text blast. Control panel users now need to confirm that they want to send or schedule the send to all contacts. 

  • Conversions, security, filters and membership updates

    Update

    We’ve leveled up automations by adding conversion tracking—a new feature designed to help you measure your success and create even more sophisticated email series. 

    Now, you can specify what you’d like to achieve with your automation, such as getting your supporters to donate a specific amount, RSVP to an event, or renew their membership. Once you define your conversion, you can keep track of everyone who has taken that action, and select whether you want them to automatically exit your automation as they convert. 

    Read our documentation on conversions.


    Update

    To increase the security of user accounts, we reduced the logged-in user sessions to 12 hours. This change impacts users logging into the control panel and/or to public sites, but not "sorta logged in" users.


    Update

    Control panel users who want to update their password in their account settings will now need to provide their current password in order to choose a new password. 


    Update

    When control panel users need to reset the password of another user they can now find a button that says “Send password reset email" in the password tab of the signup profile. This triggers the forgot password email to be sent to the user.


    Update

    We've added an option to filter for the address type that is set as the “primary address” for a given person/organization.


    Update

    We added the ability to apply a membership expiration grace period to current memberships. This was previously possible for new memberships only.

  • New domain flow update, merging admins and more

    Update

    We updated the new domain configuration flow to make it more user-friendly.


    Update

    We changed the text from "Google Apps" to "G Suite" under email provider in the domain settings. 

     


    Update

    Non-admins will now see an error when trying to merge an admin signup with another signup.


    Update

    When you prepare for an import, the “bypass webhooks” checkbox is now checked by default instead of unchecked by default. This eliminates unnecessary activity in your nation. 


    Update

    Italy and Norway were added to the ranks of countries where auto-districting happens at the postal code level rather than address1 level.

     


    Update

    We improved throttling of outbound texts to reduce bounce rates 

     


    Update

    To increase the security of user accounts, we added additional authentication when a user changes their password or email address.

     


     

  • List deletion, Email recipients and more

    Update

    We moved the deletion actions of lists into the settings tab which is more consistent with other patterns for these types of actions throughout the control panel.


    Update

    We no longer block the info@ role-based email address in email blasts recipients 


    Update

    We deprecated the legacy donation exporter, that allowed NGP format exports.

    Update

    We launched Raise, a modern and versatile NationBuilder website theme available to all customers. Created by veteran NationBuilder partners Van City Studios, Raise is the first stock theme built on Bootstrap v4, taking advantage of its many benefits, and comes in 3 color variations.


    Update

    We updated electoral boundaries in multiple locations: 

    View the full list of districts available in our documentation on autodistricting.


    Update
    We added the ability to archive a drafted or ended automation. 

    Update

    We updated the font in the email theme editor to make it easier to read longer lines of code without having the scroll through.


    Update

    We added the ability to delete an election from edit view in the nation settings


    Fix

    We updated our Bootstrap theme on the front-facing donation page. It now pre-selects the radio button next to the amount entered under 'Highlighted donation amount' as expected.

     


    Update

    We created a new flow to create tracking codes in the control panel. There is now a "New tracking code" button and a new view for adding the tracking code had been created.

     

  • Email Automations is now here!

    Update

    We’ve started releasing email automation to customers on a rolling basis, which we’ll continue to do over the next two months. Currently under the “Workflows” tab of your control panel, you can start creating email automations sourced from a list or from page actions taken on your website, and customize exclusions to prevent supporters from being added to your automation. Check out the new feature in action in this short video and see how automations can make your fully-integrated system even more powerful. If you don’t already see these features in your Control Panel and want to start using them as soon as possible, sign your nation up to get on the priority list for roll out.

     

     

  • A few updates to email blasting

    Update

    We updated our email editor so that you can change the text size and alignment of email buttons within the button properties, and it all works in Outlook!

     


    Update

    To edit the custom theme of your email blasts you can now go to your Broadcaster view > Custom themes. You no longer have to create a new email blast to make changes to your custom email templates.

  • Updated fees for American Express

    Update

    Stripe, the integrated provider for NationBuilder’s payment processor, has updated its American Express rate for nonprofits in the United States and Canada to a flat fee of 3.5% compared to the previous rate of 2.2% + $0.30. This will not affect any other donations and the NPO rate of 2.2% + $0.30 will still be applied to the transactions processed on other credit card providers. You can get more information on the international and domestic rates that may apply here.

  • Improved social media sharing, added status filters for recurring donations and more!

    Fix

    Social share prompts now give users the option to share via email, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp. This restores Facebook sharing and adds a WhatsApp integration.
