Any thoughts on an email API that could help supporters recruit others? For example, I want to start a recruiting drive where each supporter recruits at least two others. I'd like to create an app that allows people to enter a few emails, use default/editable text, and send emails out right from the page on their behalf.Official response from Adriel Hampton
Great suggestion, Bruce. We do intent to expose more communications features in the API - however, we don't presently have a timeline for this and have quite a lot of new features planned before communications. You may want to look into SendGrid's API, which we use for our mail services - you could build an email app using their tools and log new people and contacts back into NationBuilder using our existing calls.
I want to help my members invite others to join our movement. Is there any way to provide them a form email to send to others from the recruiting page? I know anyone can just copy the link, but it'd be great to be able to provide them with a message that they can use, customize, and send right there on the page instead of taking it over to an email client.
For any other payment or sign up page, I can’t think of a single example for the single field. I think you guys need to seriously consider what users are asking for here. You can make it an either or option if you really believe that more issues are created from the multiple field option, but personally the single field is the only thing creating problems for me.
This is pretty standard fare for a blog when on the single post view. It's poor flow to have to return to a list just to get to the next or previous post.
The Chrome spellcheck doesn't work in the WYSIWYG for likely technical reasons, but it's a pain to have to alway use an external editor in order to make sure that simple spelling mistakes aren't present. Hopefully some kind of solution can be developed.
It'd be nice to be able to Face tweet plus messages to a Google+ pages account. From what I gather they haven't made this open yet, but they did at least allow some early developers: http://mashable.com/2011/11/15/google-plus-pages-third-party-apps/
Hopefully you guys can pull some strings and get access for NationBuilders as well!
I've had a request for the ability to sign in with a LinkedIn account and the addition of LinkedShare buttons for all pages. Currently the only integration with LinkedIn I see is on the spread the word page.
