No time frame intel, but I did want to let you know that the Liquid in email HOWTO has been updated with examples: http://nationbuilder.com/liquid_variables_available_in_email

I’d follow reactions to that page to get the most up-to-date info.

commented on How to import memberships
I updated this HOWTO on June 9, 2016. I have tried to provide more clarity around how membership imports work and directions for importing paid membership information. Please comment here if you have additional questions about this documentation.

commented on Political party codes
Brian, since the general United States political codes work for the majority of political customers, we do not plan to add additional state-specific political parties. I would suggest importing the G and F voter party information as tags. “Obsolete voter registration – Green Party” and “Obsolete voter registration – Rainbow coalition” could be clear tags. In this way, you’d be able to filter by one or both tags.

Benjamin, I know Jeff responded on the settings variable page. http://nationbuilder.com/settings_variables

I also updated the documentation to give the correct example of settings.address.one_line

commented on Create individual address fields on forms
I apologize for the misinformation that was originally in this HOWTO. I have tested the other action page types and these address fields are only available on signup pages.

By default, donation / invoice pages request individual billing address fields. To be clear – only the billing address can be accessed through donation / invoice pages.

I have updated the HOWTO to reflect these current limitations.

commented on Discrete boxes for user address entry fields, instead of one entry box with comma separators
Mark, the way to request individual address fields is explained in the new HOWTO http://nationbuilder.com/create_individual_address_fields_on_forms. I appreciate that you would prefer the functionality be changed by default in all action pages, but I think this solution does actually work.

There is a logic behind how the user-submitted address field works. I understand that you don’t agree with that logic, but the persistence in the above response is to ensure that if other people come to this page, they understand the thinking behind how NationBuilder works.

commented on Import vote history
The vote history import process was updated last week and I updated the above HOWTO. Country code is required for all vote history imports. If the election occurred within the United States, then the registered state field is required.

David, I updated this page to include a link to http://nationbuilder.com/how_to_connect_a_bank_account

This page is part of the donation processing HOWTO, which provides technical details on how donations are processed. http://nationbuilder.com/donation_processing
