• Introducing Momentum, a new multilingual website theme for NationBuilder

    Update

    We launched a new advanced, multilingual NationBuilder website theme called Momentum. Carefully crafted in-house, Momentum will function in English, French or Spanish depending on your NationBuilder site language setting. Designed with best practices baked-in to encourage maximum engagement, Momentum is beautifully polished for both mobile and desktop. More information about this theme here.


    Update 

    Automation steps in archived steps will no longer be counted in plan usage and shouldn’t block downgrades

  • Deletion of profiles on lists, filter for imports, recurring payments and event autoresponses

    Fix

    We fixed a bug that caused people to still show up on a list after they had been deleted. When deleting a profile from a custom list, it was not removed from the screen after deleting. 


    Update

    We made it possible to filter by all files imported instead of the last 40.


    Update

    We made some cosmetic updates for recurring donations: we fixed missing translations, made recurring donations show the correct order (most recent first) and displayed a timestamp tooltip.


    Fix

    We fixed a bug so that the link people get in an event autoresponse sends them to a page where they are sorta logged in. Previously the link in that autoresponse was sending people to a page asking them to rsvp instead of allowing them to edit their existing rsvp. 

  • Address input localization, signups from text keywords, and more!

    Update

    Address inputs for single person view are now localized depending on which country is selected in the dropdown at the top


    Update

    New signups created via a text keyword on a signup page are now associated with having signed up through that page


    Fix

    We fixed a bug so that the activity stream starts on page 1 and not page 2


    Fix

    We fixed a bug that caused some recurring transactions to re-add tags and path assignments that were made with the first donation in the series


    Fix

    Canadian Provinces are now normalized to their 2 letter abbreviations for consistency in the filters and exports

  • ReCAPTCHA available on all donation V2 pages, update to membership behaviour, domain deletion flow and more!

    Update

    All customers using NationBuilder Payments now have reCAPTCHA included on their donation pages! Learn more here.


    Fix

    The page-source search box in automations is no longer case sensitive.


    Fix

    We improved the automation editing experience. When clicking “edit” on an email in an automation, it will now open the new email editor instead of opening the sidebar.


    Update

    We made the process easier when you need to tag people who are leaving a voicemail by adding an autocomplete to the tag input field.


    Update

    When starting a recurring donation tied to a membership, any existing recurring donations tied to the same membership will be immediately cancelled.
    The membership remains active. Only the existing recurring donations are cancelled IF they are Active, Failed or Pending. There’s no need to cancel them if they are Completed or already Canceled. 


    Update

    We added an extra step to confirm the removal of a domain in the custom domain settings of your nation.

  • Address updates, text blast workflow improvements and more

    Update

    We've added the ability to request all address types on all page types: now you’ll be able to specify which address type is being requested and modify the order of the address inputs for better localization. The default country in the country dropdown will correlate with the nation details. You'll find more information about this change in our documentation here.


    Update

    Users can now define the type of address they are creating alongside a new signup


    Update

    When users include URLs on public-facing blog posts, they are now automatically hyperlinked. Links no longer require to be created manually. 


    Update

    We've made significant updates to the text blast recipients workflow to be consistent with that of email blasts. It no longer defaults to send to "All". We've also enhanced permissions on the mailing recipients tab to prevent users from seeing restricted people data.


    Fix

    Control panel users with “Website” access can now access the checkbox tab of signup pages.


    Fix

    We adjusted the zoom level on map view to the whole map when users flip to the map view. 


    Fix

    We've made a change to allow for filtering of “address_state” beyond US/CAN/AUS. Every “state” that is saved in the nation will appear as an option in that filter.

  • 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 [email protected] role-based email address in email blasts recipients 


    Update

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