New Features

We have been working hard on new features for Nimble AMS and Community Hub users! Read below to learn more about the big new things, click on the learn more link to read more about the feature and how to enable it.

Feature Introduction

Pilot Express Payment

Community Hub Express Payment is a very simple concept, make it as easy as possible to allow an association to receive a payment for anything and from anyone. With the Winter '18 release of Nimble AMS we are continuing our effort to streamline and remove barriers when placing orders and receiving payments in Community Hub. The new Express Payment feature in Community Hub is 100% from the constituents point of view. When they receive an email from the association for an invoice with an outstanding balance, it contains a unique URL just for that specific invoice. When they click on this unique URL it directs them to a page where they can view the invoice in full along with a streamlined payment process. We removed even more barriers for the constituent by allowing guests to also process payments. The constituent can simply forward the email with the unique invoice URL to someone else to apply payment, such as an accounting department. That individual may not have a Community Hub login or an account with the association, but that is no longer a barrier to the payment process. With the unique URL they can still access the invoice and apply the payment as a guest. By adding the unique Express Payment URL to all orders and carts, we are expediting the payment process for invoice the association may have.

Pilot Multiple Community Hubs

Multiple Community Hubs is the latest advancement to the Nimble AMS Community Hub experience. This new functionality provides administrators the necessary building blocks to manage the setup and maintenance of additional Community Hubs. As before, the primary association can fully manage their ecommerce needs in their existing Community Hub. Now, any additional entities or affiliated associations, also managed in Nimble AMS, can have their own entity based Community Hub. Administrators have the tools to define each Community Hub's look and feel as well as the unique Community Hub experience for that entity or association.

Beta Community Hub Access Control

Community Hub Setup has been enhanced with even more point and click setup and configuration options. New access controls give your administrators point-and-click tools to add special conditions to either display or hide Community Hub components based on your specific business rules. Administrators can display or hide menu items, pages, cards, and buttons in Community Hub based on criteria they define. Continuous improvement to Community Hub Setup empowers your association to do more so your constituents have the best and most personalized experience in Community Hub.
