Thoughts on technology and innovation
Nimble AMS Winter ‘18 is full of new features that will make your staff and members more efficient than ever! In this release we have removed barriers to payment, streamlined Staff View by optimizing for Lightning Experience, and made way for Multiple Community Hubs. We also put the power of Community Hub Access Control in the hands of administrators. We’re very excited about all the ways this latest release will help you make the most of your AMS.
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. When a constituent receives 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 without logging in. By adding the unique Express Payment URL to all orders and carts, we are expediting the payment process for invoice the association may have.
Multiple Community Hubs
Multiple Community Hubs is the latest advancement to the Nimble AMS Community Hub experience. This new functionality provides administrators with the necessary building blocks to setup and maintain 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.
Community Hub Access Control
The Community Hub Setup has been enhanced with even more point and click setup and configuration options. The new Community Hub Access Control functionality gives association administrators the power to define the conditional display options of various Community Hub components. Administrators can now add special display options to either show or hide a Community Hub component based on the association's specific business rules with easy point and click tools. These tools allow you to show or hide Cards, Buttons, Pages or Navigation Menu Items in Community Hub with only a few clicks. Continuous improvement to the Community Hub Setup just empowers your association to do more and do it easily so your constituents have the best and most personalized experience in Community Hub.
Lightning Experience Optimization
Lightning Experience is Salesforce's reimagined user interface and it comes with a fresh new modern look for their users. Salesforce built Lightning Experience to make people more productive, and with Winter '18, you can increase your staff's efficiency with Nimble AMS optimized for Lightning Experience. With Lightning Experience enabled in your org, you will enjoy the hundreds of new Salesforce features and a streamlined Nimble AMS experience that is only available in Lightning.

Please help us welcome Jake Darling to the NimbleUser team! Jake is a graduate of RIT with a B.S. in Software Engineering. Jake has joined our Product Architecture team, bringing experience from internships in test automation and software engineering.
When asked what brought him to NimbleUser, Jake responded, “The people and culture. It’s a very trusting environment. Everyone is friendly and wants to succeed. I got a good sense of this in my interview, and even before that when reading through some of the blog posts.”
So far, Jake’s favorite part of working at NimbleUser is the office setting. He loves the art, the bright colors, natural light, and inspirational quotes on the monitors. (The stocked fruit in the kitchen doesn’t hurt either.)
