New Major Features

These features are new in Nimble AMS Spring '19.

Beta Event Microsites 

Nimble AMS now includes two event microsites, which are public communities built on Salesforce Community Cloud. Event microsites are perfect for showcasing your large events like annual conferences. Using Community Workspaces and Community Builder, staff can rapidly point-and-click configure these template sites to match the association's theme, style, and event content, and then publish them for public access. These microsites are dedicated communities that exist alongside Community Hub in your Nimble AMS org, so community management is handled for each one separately, allowing for granular theming and design on a site-by-site basis.

Pilot Business Events Framework 

Business Events make it simple for app builders and administrators to use declarative tools to react to common system actions and activitiesFor example, rather than building elaborate triggering criteria for when a process should execute, wouldn't it be convenient if the triggering criteria could just be a simple, predefined platform event? This prevents repetitive setup across multiple processes and makes it simpler for non-technical users, abstracting out the complicated condition building in a process. Now, they can just ask, "What do I want to have happen when the complicated thing happens?" This also empowers app builders and admins to trigger processes in a powerful new way: time-based events that trigger when date and time fields elapse!

Pilot Recurring Payments (Flexible Payments) 

Flexible payments is the umbrella term for three powerful, cross-compatible features in Nimble AMS Staff View and Community Hub: One-time Scheduled payments, Installment Payments, and Recurring Payments. These are a must in the present day e-commerce environment. Financial transactions with your constituents are more likely than ever with these capabilities, helping increase revenue. It's also very convenient for constituents because it empowers them to "set it and forget it" or spread a large expense out over a period of time.

GA Single Sign-On (SSO) including Freestone LMS & Crowd Wisdom LMS 

You've exposed a lot of portals and web apps to your constituents: Community Hub, your main website, and perhaps a job board or a learning management system like Freestone LMS or Crowd Wisdom LMS. It's not exactly a smooth experience if they have to log in to all those sites individually. How about they log in once and then they are securely logged in everywhere? That's the beauty of Single Sign-On (SSO).

Existing Major Features Growing Up

Introduced in prior releases, these features are advancing to the next level of the feature lifecycle in this release.

GA Automatic Stored Payment Method Updates PRIOR RELEASE: BETA

With the BluePay (a Community Brands Premier Partner) payment gateway supporting Automatic Account Updating for Discover®, MasterCard®, and Visa® stored payment methods, we thought it would be a perfect time to introduce that added functionality as an option within Nimble AMS. With the Summer '18 release, you can now take advantage of the safe and easy updating of a constituent's stored credit card information when there are changes to the credit card account. When a credit card is stolen and replaced or when the card is reissued upon expiration, you can continue to receive payments and view updated payment information. We have enhanced the stored payment method functionality in Nimble AMS to update payment information on a stored payment method when processing a payment using that stored payment method. This ensures you will be able to view a constituent's most current payment information.

GA Level 2 and Level 3 Credit Card Processing PRIOR RELEASE: BETA

With the BluePay (a Community Brands Premier Partner) payment gateway supporting Level 2 and Level 3 credit card processing, we thought it would be a perfect time to introduce that added functionality as an option within Nimble AMS. With the Summer '18 release we now support Level 2 and Level 3 payment processing on MasterCard®, and Visa® for the BluePay payment gateway. By opting into this feature, additional transaction data is sent to the payment gateway for credit card processing. Utilizing this extra data in the credit card processing, your association will benefit by lower processing fees for MasterCard® and Visa® transactions.
