I love it!
Custom fields are included in the Enterprise edition, which also includes subnations. We added custom fields to support the expanding needs of leaders and complex organizations using NationBuilder to build communities. If your nation requires custom fields, contact your organizer. Our NationBuilder Architect design partners can also help with implementing custom fields.
Tags, surveys and custom fields
Custom fields are meant to support collection of key data when you have a large number of variables that each could be true for a large number of the people in your database. For example:
- A Girl Scout nation wants to track the council and troop of each supporter;
- A large union wants to collect information on the work sites of its members and which local they affiliate with;
- An alumni association wants to know which year its supporters graduated, and with what major;
- A PTA wants to know which classrooms and teachers are associated with which parent volunteers.
If you have information that's likely going to be different for each person who submits a form, surveys with open text answers are a better option than custom fields. And if you have a smaller number of discrete attributes or actions to track, we recommend our flexible tagging feature for keeping track of people in your nations.
Email notifications in NationBuilder alert members of the nation when someone who they are following takes a public action, like RSVPing for an event or commenting on a page. To opt someone out of email notifications from the control panel, go to their profile and uncheck the boxes under "Notifications."
I need it to report an expenditure.
