New Feature: The Backer Info Card
Share this post
One of the most frequently requested features we get from project creators is the ability to see more information about backers from anywhere on their project page.
Today we're excited to announce a new feature that does exactly that: the backer info card. This feature gives project creators a snapshot of who backers are directly from where they need it most — the Backers tab, the Comments tab, and in Project Update comments.
On each of those pages, creators can now see a "Backer info" button next to each backer's name. Clicking it reveals how much the backer pledged, when their pledge was made, which reward they selected, and any notes the creator has made about them. (Don't worry — this is only viewable by logged-in project creators, and only on their own projects.)
After a successfully funded project has sent surveys, backer responses are also viewable in the panel:
The panel also provides a quick shortcut for sending a message to a backer or leaving a note about them in the Backer Report. No need to bounce back and forth.
We hope the backer info card will help creators keep in touch with backers and keep track of their work. Thanks as always for your feedback and for using Kickstarter!
