Put up a real forum

considering

NationBuilder routes all support interactions and discussions through topical suggestion boxes.

Another version of a forum is something we will consider but does not have a timeline at the moment.

However we are paying close attention to the most popular suggestions so please share and encourage others to follow and comment!

Thank you for your suggestion, Éric. In the immediate term, you might consider using the "text" question to review open ended answers or lists of responses.

Can auto-responder preview be fixed?

Ron, have you seen the new "report a problem" link in the control panel footer? Reporting your issue there will put it directly in the hands of our engineers for review (along with giving them additional bug troubleshooting info from the page and browser).

Permission Levels

completed

We will be restricting access to staffers and above for importing/exporting data, that is a very good idea.

If you can flesh out in more detail what features you do not want different levels to be able to do, I will definitely look at those.

We don't intend to have additional user types or let you choose which features are permissible for additional user types because we've found that to get really confusing for people very quickly.

Updated (09/30/2013): Change of plans. You now have complete control over which features are available to your team members with NationBuilder's permission sets. Learn more about how to create custom permission sets for your nation
