Data Each client had a different data structure at their university, and so we developed a combination of built in and custom software solutions to make sure we maintained data integrity and passed up interaction data (i.e. who was attending events). We used NationBuilder’s open API to sync back to the university’s internal system and tag sharing to make sure that the individual clubs were being passed data from the parents that was relevant to their jurisdiction while maintaining the privacy and integrity of the larger ecosystem.
Website A big part of getting the club leaders to ditch their old tools and work with the university was giving them a gorgeous website with an easy-to-use back end. NationBuilder gave us a lot of the functionality the clubs would need, and we built some customizations on top of it like photo galleries, job boards, alumni directories that showed custom information, and profiles for alumni that showed employment and contact information, to name a few. The themes we developed for the website were modular, so that they could customize their homepages to reflect their priorities. For example, a club that held a lot of events could feature a calendar with multiple events on their homepage, while a club that only had a single monthly event could feature just that one
Membership & Privacy Chapter organizations often need to create unique value for their members, like locked content, or event tickets discounts. Using NationBuilder we were able to build in these levels of access easily
Custom Software Using the NationBuilder API, we built a series of applications to enhance the existing suite of tools. Our Searchable Directory queries the parent database and returns alumni based on a bunch of criteria, from current employer to the city where they live. A Global Calendar searches every club in the network and amalgamates their events into one calendar.
