Advance Search by Type of Contact

In advanced search, under Contact History, contact type is not a filter option. 

For example, I would like to be able to search for all the people we doorknocked last week.

"Official Response"

Is it possible to implement this on all nations like it's done here for the questions and suggestions? Is it accomplished via style sheet trickery, or is there some way to designate which users' responses are flagged as "official"?

Official response from

Yes, you found where to do that, it's "edit the suggestion" - We intend to make that a bit easier, but that's the way it works for now.

There is no "pending."  There is "planned", "not planned", "considering", "started", and "completed."  You don't have to use all of them, if something is never completed, it's never completed.

I could see another situation where you might want different language to refer to a legislative process, like "in committee" or something along those lines, but can you describe how you would use it?  I tend to not want to let people change things like this because it just adds to complexity and if there is some way to figure out how to make it work the same for everyone it ends up being better for everyone.

Support custom URLs for donation pages

Donation integration is fantastic. However, the secure https pages redirect to the slug.nationbuilder.com address. We're using a donation page as the splash page, and the redirection in the domain name is confusing to users who are trying to make sure they're donating in the right place.

Official response from not planned

Unfortunately, this is not something we can support as these pages need to be SSL, which is why they are shown on the slug.nationbuilder.com domain.  Technically the way this would have to be implemented would require us to charge a significant monthly fee, more than what NationBuilder itself cost.  And I'm pretty sure almost no one would end up wanting it at that price.

Default to disable autoresponse for RSVP on expired events

I just went through and manually updated attendees for an expired event who had not previously RSVPd. The way the interface contextual help told me to do this was to manually add them as a new RSVP with the "attended" box checked. Simple enough. But then I noticed that it had sent each of these people RSVP confirmation auto responses for an event that was in the past and that they had already attended - confusing, to say the least.

Events that already happened should default to disable the autoresponse email when new RSVPs are added.

Here’s an update on this thread… Trying to import IDs into a list. I have a CSV with nationbuilder_ids and state_file_ids of people who are already in my database – I’m just trying to import them to a list based on search criteria I queried offline. However, when I’m trying to map the fields on the import, state_file_id is not one of the fields available in the drop down, and when I try mapping only nation_builder_ids, it says that that is not sufficient to make a match. So, 2 issues to report:
1) state_file_id is not a field option
2) unique matching should only require a nationbuilder_id

Good point – it’s been a while since I ran an import and I forgot you could import directly to a list. Maybe surface this functionality in the list management UI?

It would be useful to see when calling (both in call mode and printed lists) who other members of the household are, to reduce duplicated voter ID calls. Right now, I’m reduced to using a single “person” to represent a household with both names in the first name field. This is inelegant, especially when there are different last names. Ideally, each individual would still be separate, with some way to associate them, and then some way in the interface to indicate if there are other individuals in the same household. In call / walking interface areas, roll up information to represent a household entity, with, eg, aggregate total amount donated.

Another nice touch from a supporter side would be to rsvp for other household members on event pages.

Make sure to support arbitrary numbers of people in a household, not just two.

@austin: mobile templates just launched, but this is what we had come up with before hand, based on mobile jQuery http://pastebin.com/91msQVZS

Finer grain control of permissions overall would be super helpful. There’s a certain level of complexity involved, but only once when you set up the nation. Overall, in my mind, the plusses outweigh the negatives. A full member- and group-based permissions matrix would be super helpful.

Ability to edit tags in call mode

It would be great to be able to add/edit tags in the call mode interface. While writing some call scripts, I have to tell people just to take notes and then process it as another step during data entry. It would be nice to be able to capture tags at the time of calls.
