In certain instances you may want to collect more information from people than what's in the allotted fields on some of our standard signup forms.
Here's an example:
You're setting up a volunteer program where details about the supporter's education (what degree? what school?) are required.
We recommend that you string together your volunteer signup page with a survey page in what we call an action chain.
NationBuilder allows you to designate landing pages once a user has completed an action on a given page type. By sending the person to another action page, after signing up to volunteer for example, you are creating a chain of actions for them to complete.
You can easily do this to collect additional data from people. Create a volunteer sign-up page (change the name of it to whatever program or campaign you are collecting people's data for), and then designate a survey page type as the landing page after they sign-up. The survey page allows you to collect information from people in the form of yes/no questions, multiple choice, and free form text responses. You can tag people who answer with certain multiple choice responses, making it easy to keep track of all of the "PhDs," for example.
