allow signups to receive email blast at more than one email address

Nationbuilder allows signup records to have more than one email address - great.

What if people want to receive our email blasts at more than one email address - say, their work email address and their personal one? At this stage the only way we can do this is to have the real person correspond to multiple sign-up records in our database, which is not ideal.

It would be great if Nationbuilder allowed signups to receive email blasts, at more than one email address.

As a bit of context - I feel sometimes the assumption with Nationbuilder is that email blasts are something to which there's a one-way benefit attached, for the sender - that we want people to get emails from us and have to persuade them to do so and they do so as a favour to us.

This model does not fit our organisation. While it is true that we to have as many (interested) subscribers as possible, we are a not-for-profit providing a much-demanded service to the community, and part of the way we provide this service is through our email blasts. Many of the people who are on our list, very actively want to receive our emails (as opposed to just didn't notice the box to uncheck), and rely on the information we send via email blast.

Thank you Tanya - this is a great suggestion - right now the solution is to have two profiles for the individual but I understand how that's not a long term solution. 

I think this is also a really good observation

"I feel sometimes the assumption with Nationbuilder is that email blasts are something to which there's a one-way benefit attached, for the sender - that we want people to get emails from us and have to persuade them to do so and they do so as a favour to us."

There isn't any plan to change this at the moment but all this feedback is really really valuable.
