intro Goes International

Ok, not really. We still remain focused on the needs of US campaigns, but that hasn’t kept us from attracting the interest of the international press. Our company founder, Ben Katz, was recently quoted in the Dutch magazine, FEM Business, in an article on the US Presidential elections.

You can read the article here (if you can read Dutch). We’re not entirely sure what it says, either.

New Features in '08

One of the advantages of using web-based software is that you have immediate access to all of the new features that we roll out. And, as you can see from the list below, we roll out a lot of new features - many of which are based on your feedback.

In 2008 alone, we've added 26 new features, which is about 2.5 new features a week! Here's a list of the first 20 new features we've added this year (click on the titles to see descriptions), and below that you'll find the six new features we've added just this week.

The six new features from this week:

New Permission Level

We have added a permission level for Public Pages and Stationery. We have also automatically applied the appropriate level to all users based on current settings.

New Look for Information Buttons

Our information buttons -- the ( i ) icons -- have always displayed extra information when you mouse over them. We have improved the way this information displays, and now the information won’t disappear while you are still mousing over it. Scroll over one of the information buttons to take a look!

New Field Descriptions

Not sure what something means? If you see a dashed line under it, that means you can mouse over it for a more thorough description. We have updated the Permissions in the User Manager (System > Users) with these field descriptions, as well as a few other areas of the database. We’ll be using these descriptions more and more as we update new areas.

Suppress Name Title in FEC 48 Hour Report

When running the FEC 48 Hour Notice Report, you now have the option to suppress individual name titles (Mr./Ms). Once the list of transactions is generated you will also see a box that can be checked to suppress name titles.

Combine Duplicates via Custom Report Generator

You may now combine duplicates using the custom report generator. Run any query with the following export options to dedupe a small group of people: Type: Data Updates, Format: Combine Duplicates.

Updated Report Warnings for FPPC Filers

For our FPPC (California State & Local) filers, we have updated our Report Warnings for the Form 460. Now, if you have an expense and there is a PO Box listed for the vendor or subvendor, the system will now generate a Report Warning, as per FPPC guidelines.
