See the group hierarchy

If you're responsible for a whole network, you can now see the whole hierarchy. In the upper left of the screen click your name, and then "account", to see your profile page, which shows all your groups in an outline, with the children groups indented under the parent group.

Add / Edit a member

You could always add people to your synchronized Action Network group, but now you can add new members to your group directly in Affinity. And yes, the new people will sync over into Action Network if you've got a connected group there.

Queuing system for synchronization

This one is invisible to the users, except that it makes our synchronization with other CRM's much more scalable and reliable. We're ready to handle a lot more data now.

Multi-group management

Now it's possible to be the organizer of any number of groups, not just one. We make it easy to manage each one individually, or to get a global view of your entire network.

Search and filter

Search and filter members and events, including finding them by tags. Seems simple, but this makes it super fast and easy to create a very basic phone bank or team email loop.

Freeform tags

Freeform tags for members, groups and events. Organizers love this feature.

Member profile page

... with notes and attendance scores, so organizers can learn which members are the most effective.

Alphabetical attendees

An intrepid beta tester pointed out that it would be easier to match her list of "who showed up at the meeting" back to the Affinity event attendance page if the names were in alphabetical order. So Rabble rolled that out a few hours later.

Lots of new event management stuff!

Based on feedback from the community, managing events is one of the biggest missing links in the existing toolkit. So today we added a number of features to our beta version to make the basics easier. Now you can:

  • Automatically import your events from ActionNetwork (other CRM's coming in the future)
  • Toggle each member who RSVP'd to the event as "attended" or "didn't attend", so you know who needs a follow-up call
  • Print an attendance sheet to take to the event, when carrying your laptop is inconvenient (i.e., always :-) )
  • When new people show up at your meeting, easily add them into Affinity, which both creates a new person in ActionNetwork and also records the fact that they showed up.

In addition we've begun to add to the types of users you can have in Affinity. "Organizers" have full access to your group's list, while "Members" can see public information like which events are happening soon. Organizers can also see all the members of the group in one list (something you can't do in ActionNetwork natively), with a simple one-click button to email them directly

Whew! That was a big one. But more is on the way. If you have questions about these features or thoughts about new ones, email us!
