commented on Turf cut - county boundary
Hey Tim, new signups added to your nation with a complete address will have the County automatically filled out once the address geocodes, which should let you use the “Address County” filter option to group folks by county rather than relying on the turf cutter. This change went into effect 3/1/2017, so anyone added to the database before that date will need to have their addresses re-imported for county to be added (filter for county does not exist, select the custom export options to only export nationbuilder_id and address fields, and then re-import the id and address fields while selecting “overwrite” in the importer).

commented on "Always publish" option to newly synced files with Dropbox
I would really like to see this as an option – having to use the preview mode on dev-specific website that isn’t publicly visible or is not at an easily found address introduces a tedious and unnecessary step into the workflow when using a staging site, which most Architects do as it’s the only reliable way to get a true end-to-end site experience vetted.

The preview window isn’t bad overall, but it has some visual wonkiness (dual right-hand scroll bar, non-responsive nav section which makes mobile testing a pain), pages you cannot actually preview, and nation admins are often unable to use the preview mode on subsites – this is all enough to make using a staging site a far more desirable route for most large-scale theme changes, and at that point the draft/publish workflow is unnecessary.
