Profiles are created in NationBuilder in a few different ways. They are created automatically when a person takes action on your website or interacts with a broadcaster via Twitter, Facebook, text, voicemail, or email. You can also manually add a profile. Additionally, you can import people to your nation, which creates a profile for each person or updates existing profiles. Organizations you interact with also have profiles.

All profiles are housed in the People section.

Create a profile

Navigate to People > + New person

The system needs a name/email address, but all of the rest information on this page is optional. However, in order to get a holistic view of the person's relationship with your nation, you want to fill in as much information as possible about the person. 

When finished, click Add person

View a profile

Click on the People tab. As mentioned earlier, this is where all profiles in your nation exist. 

Click on the name of any person (or organization) to view their profile in its entirety. 

Edit a profile

To edit the basic information on a profile (e.g. name, email, support level, etc.), click on the person's name > Edit > Settings

To edit any other elements of a person's profile, click on the corresponding tab.
