commented on Please bring back yearly membership autorenewals
As this item remains pending I’ve been exploring other member management systems for my clients. Here’s a solid list of everything on the market: So far, every one I’ve reviewed offers annual automatic payments as a core feature. I believe it is a best practice. Even if NB were willing to allow annual autorenewals for just one processor, say PayPal express, it would be a game-changer. Otherwise, the only work around is to utilize a different product and hire a developer to attempt to write a custom integration.

commented on Remove "Test mode" from payment processors where it is not applicable
To compound this issue, when in test mode the following text appears above donation forms:

“Transactions will not be processed. Use your regular credit card to test, you will not actually be charged”

Problem is the processor was Stripe, and it did indeed charge the card. Using the Stripe test numbers resulted in error messages. Perhaps the a change can be made server side to not display that text when Stripe is involved?

commented on Ability to record personal information of +1 guests in the Events module.
First Name, Last Name and possibly email would be wonderful. I’ve been using custom fields for this but it’d be nice to have it baked in to templates

commented on Make all demographic fields available client-side.
I’ve wondered this myself and am always in favor of more data collection capacities.
