• New theme, electoral boundary updates and more!

    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.

    Fix

    We updated the donor count bar on Donation (v2) pages to display the correct number of donors. 

     


    Update

    We've added a status filter to the recurring donations page in the Finances section.

     


    Bug

    We fixed a bug where emails sent out of NationBuilder would produce odd results in Outlook and Office 365.

     


     

  • Improved design for better web accessibility, fixed a bug with recurring donations, and more!

    Update

    We made an update to the colors throughout the control panel to improve web accessibility. 

     


    Update

    We released "New" button flows throughout the control panel to improve the UX.


    Fix

    After 5 unsuccessful attempts to charge a donor’s card through a NationBuilder payment processing account, the recurring donation is accurately updated as “Canceled”.  Up until recently, this cancelation would not update the recurring donation status from “Active” to “Canceled,” even though no further charges to the donor would be attempted. This did not affect individual transactions, and customers would not have seen active transactions or payouts where they did not exist, meaning that the impact was limited to the nation’s listing of recurring donations and to some filters.

  • Improved speed of donation searches, fixed a bug with saving permissions, and more

    Fix

    We fixed an issue where the Save button when editing a permission set wasn't working correctly.

    Fix

    We improved the speed of donation aggregate searches. Previously, donation aggregate queries like "Total amount donated" were much slower than non-aggregate queries like "Donation date."

     


    Update

    We updated the list of currencies to have the Kenyan shilling added as "KES".

     


     

  • Improved tag creation, add a highlighted donation amount, and more!

    Update

    We've improved the tag creation experience so that hitting enter will submit the form, tags will be highlighted on save and undo, and the tag list will automatically expand on save

    Update

    We made an update that will allow a set amount to be highlighted when someone visits that particular donation page. 

     

     


    Fix

    If a nation only has one broadcaster clicking Communication in the sidebar navigation will now take you directly to that broadcaster.

     


    Fix

    We made a change to the donation tracking code search filter where it will search by looking at each signup with all of their donations as a whole rather than on a donation per donation basis. For example, if you run a filter for "Donation tracking code is not A" it will now exclude anyone who has any donation with tracking code A, even if they have other donations without tracking code A.

    We also changed the label and field name from 'is' and 'is not' to 'has' and 'does not have a'.

     


    Fix

    We updated our payment processor to have an additional field type during the setup process since not all of the customers using our payment processor are affiliated with business accounts.

     

  • Annual recurring donations, [TEST] was added to the subject line of test emails, and more!

    Update

    All nations are able to process annual recurring donations.


    Fix

    If you only have the permission to create and edit email, you will not be able to see the recipients view in the email stats because it contains sensitive information.


     


    Update

    Added two new political parties for Australia: Christian Democratic Party, Y and Independents for Climate Action Now, M

     


    Update

    [TEST] was added to the subject line when you send a test email.
