Having trouble finding someone in your nation? Here's why...

Are you having trouble finding a person or organization in your nation using the search feature in FieldEdge?

It could be due to this bug with NationBuilder's API.

As of July 15, 2017, NationBuilder's API only returns results from your nation when the name of the person or organisation exactly matches.

For example: typing "John" will not return results for "Johnathan". Similarly, if I want to find "McDonalds Smithfield", you will need to type "mcdonalds smithfield" – searching for "mcdonalds" would not work.

This issue has been raised with NationBuilder. If you would like to see this issue resolved, please show your support here:
