commented on More Flexible Roles & Permissions Needed to Avoid Security Risks
I agree. I would also like to give volunteers access to only segments of the voter list.

commented on "Add to calendar" feature in events
Yes, please! It would also be helpful if we could upload .ics files somewhere on our site so that we could put a link to an .ics file in our email blasts.

commented on Wiki for Documentation
I’m finding the existing documentation unwieldy and often unhelpful. Maybe I’m missing something, but I can’t find, say, a simple description of the various roles and their associated permissions. In most other cloud-base systems I’ve used (e.g., Salesforce, Moodle) there is always a vendor-produced page that explains the functionality. With NB, I’m often frustrated, wasting time wandering around the FAQ’s hoping that someone has asked a question near enough to mine that I can get a quick answer.

Having to post the question myself, and wait for a person to answer, is a barrier I often don’t cross. I just stay frustrated.

commented on Info lost - merged profiles
After importing our voter file, we have a de-duping catch-22: if we merge the voter file record into our existing record, we lose the precinct and other data; if we merge the other way, we lose (at least) the note and possibly other data too. This is terrible!!!!! Please fix asap!!!!

commented on Add Off-Year Election Information
Same problem in Philadelphia, city of over 1.5 million people, where municipal elections affect more people than statewide elections elsewhere.

commented on Confirmation messages are not informative enough
Maybe by surrounding the message in red, and writing “Delete all 271 people from the database” on the giant red button. I’m not trying to escape blame here, but I think I just didn’t see the message at the bottom of the page. And part of the reason I didn’t read/see the message is that I’d gotten used to the idea that NB warning messages weren’t helpful (see next paragraph).

It would also be helpful if, in all contexts, the confirmation specified the result (e.g., on removing someone from a list, the “yes/no” confirmation should say, instead of “are you sure?”, “are you sure you want to remove this person from this list?”

Keep up the good work!

commented on Regular Expressions for Advanced Search
Really, it’s a dopeslap issue, and one that I would leave Nationbuilder over. Please, please fix this!
