The new NationBuilder control panel

Your control panel is where you do the vital work of finding, organizing, and equipping your community. Our job at NationBuilder is to make the experience of doing that work as smooth, easy, and beautiful as possible—so you can focus on leading.

Incorporating usability research and customer feedback, we’ve meticulously redesigned each NationBuilder interface to create a more streamlined and powerful user experience. We’re thrilled to share a brand new control panel, grounded in a unified design system that we will continue to improve and build upon over time.

Ready to give it a try?

  • Control panel administrators can activate the new control panel immediately by hovering over the user menu and selecting Try the control panel redesign beta. This will only activate it for your account, and allows you to try it before non-administrators.
  • To allow others to try the new control panel, select Allow all control panel users to try the beta by navigating to Settings > Beta. Each user will need to hover over their user menu and select Try the control panel redesign beta to activate it. If your nation was already part of the limited beta, all control panel users already have access.
