Ian Patrick Hines

Ian Patrick Hines is the founder and CEO of Hines Digitalan award winning, internationally renowned, conservative digital agency that’s out to beat the left at their own game by out-hustling, out-organizing, and out-fundraising them.

From November 2012 – November 2013, Ian was a NationBuilder Tech Organizer, during which time he became one of the world’s foremost NationBuilder experts. He’s now helping campaigns and organizations get the most out of their nations as a certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect.

Prior to joining NationBuilder, he spent nine years in Maryland politics where he served in nearly every role from field organizer to communications director. In 2003, when online organizing was new and unproven, he managed the GenDean Blog — at just 17-years old — and his 2010 article on the potential impact of Square on political fundraising was featured on The New York Times' Bits Blog.

A fourth-generation Marylander, he currently lives in Severna Park, Maryland with his wife Christy and their three children: Oliver, Moira and Henry.

Tim — I’ve wrapped the answer in {% raw %} tags, so you should be able to see the liquid, now.

commented on Email notification for regular signups?
Naomi — If you have particular people on your team (the Finance Chair, for example) who want to be donated anytime anyone makes a donation (or takes some other action), they can absolutely be notified that via email.

Within your Control Panel, navigate to that person’s profile. Under their “Notifications” tab, check the box under “Everyone” that corresponds to the action they’d like to be notified about. See this screenshot for an example:

Once that’s checked, they’ll receive an email notification anytime anyone takes that action.

commented on Referencing Uploaded Files
Michael — That method works wonderfully, though be aware that there’s a 200kb limit to CSS files uploaded this way. If you want / need to use larger files, split them into two and reference them both.

Katy — Right click on the file’s name in your Files tab (as pictured above) and copy the URL. Link to that URL from within the Body tab.
