David, you’ll note that Google and Microsoft both use a single entry field for their mapping services.

Kieran, here are some tips for advanced sidebar customization – http://richiroutreach.com/blog/customizing-nationbuilder-sidebars and http://richiroutreach.com/blog/advanced-customization-nationbuilder-sidebars You’re going to need to create a new file and reference that in your _columns_2.html file. We’re working on making tasks like this a bit more simple, but we don’t have a timeline yet for that release.

We do record the webinars and will be offering them at alternative times. For on-demand resources, be sure to check out http://nationbuilder.com/screencasts.

commented on Shared voter list to volunteer.. where do they see the list? 2012-05-20 09:12:02 -0700
Christopher, currently only people who have control panel access can access and update lists. Sorry for the confusion.

Your volunteers will need to have access to the control panel at at least intern level, or else you can export your list and share it as a spreadsheet.

Aran, right now that page type just shows all the public activities for people that the logged in user is following. We will likely remove that settings tab until we add more functionality. Thanks for pointing it out.

commented on How do I get the NationBuilder landing page to go away 2012-07-07 09:53:40 -0700
NationBuilder allows you to restrict access to certain pages or to complete sites that are under development. If pages are showing a login, that means you have restricted access. For the sitewide settings, change this under Pages > Settings and change your drop-down to “anyone.” If individual pages have restrictions, changing the sitewide settings will not remove those restrictions. Check under Pages and if any of your pages has a lock symbol next to it, that means you have login restrictions on those pages. Click edit on each page with a lock and you will be able to change those pages to “anyone” as well.

commented on Is there a way to make custom form fields in the event registration? 2012-10-16 07:39:26 -0700
Patrick, upon completion of the event signup, under “Event settings” you can specify a new page to direct your signups to – using a survey page type, you can customize questions for multiple choice and short answer.

commented on Missing membership fields in People API 2014-03-24 14:24:57 -0700
David, these fields are now live:

membership_expires_at – the time and date that this user’s membership expires
membership_level_name – the name of the level of this person’s membership
membership_started_at – the time and date that this user started a membership

Jon, if you answer others’ questions, you’ll gain currency. There are lots of ways to earn and spend political capital, some as simple as paying an invoice. Glad that Lilia’s answer was helpful!
