commented on Create individual address fields on forms Yep, Collin- it drives us nuts too. There isn’t a timeline to clean it up so the signup object is identical across all the page types, there are other things that are more critical to fix, but I hear you.

commented on Our gift to you - new "Focus" website theme Wendy – actually our designer fought this design tooth and nail for exactly that reason. It’s a readability disaster. But for some folks their sites aren’t actually about reading at all, so it doesn’t matter. If you have a lot of text on your site, don’t use Focus.
commented on Advanced Search - Households for canvassing Kristofer-

NB actually is structured so that each address is an independent object, except the difference is that we might have 10 address objects all with the exact same address. The address objects aren’t unique.

The way you’ve structured it makes a lot of sense, to make each address object unique. It will require us to change the way we save and update the addresses, but it will make identifying people who live in the same building, or who live in the same household, much easier. Not to mention it will cut down on the time it takes to geocode and district everyone. And when updating an address, we can make it easy for people to update everyone at that address if they want to. There are quite a few UI and importing changes to make to support this, but it does seem like the right approach.

commented on Additional Content Types Hi Marjorie… can you give some examples of what you mean by “user-named content types”? It will help me understand what you are suggesting better. Thanks!
commented on Call Center/List Thanks Steve, that makes sense. Importing/exporting contact history is on the short list to add.
commented on Better Call Sheets Those fundraising call sheets are supposed to be one-page-per-prospect, but the styling wasn’t coming through properly. That is fixed now.

We have the ability to make multiple styles, so if you need something else formatting or information-wise on them, let me know.
