"Sharing" is now "Collaborate"

Feb. 20, 2017, 6 a.m. Bug Fixes Enhancements

What was once called "Sharing" is now called "Collaborate". This is to clear up some confusion!

Collaborate is a way to invite others to work on your address list with you. If you invite someone to collaborate on your address list, they'll be able to see all of the addresses, delete them, add new ones, and edit existing ones.

Feb. 25, 2016, 3:10 p.m. Tips Enhancements New Features

You can now change the label for the 'State' field on your website.

This change was inspired by one of our Canadian friends :)


We've made it easier to export and download your addresses!

Nov. 20, 2015, 3:01 p.m. How to Enhancements

To export and download your addresses...

  1. Click "MENU"

  2. Select "Download/Export Addresses"

  3. Click the "Check All" button to select all of the addresses on the page. If you have more than 100 addresses you'll need to click the "Next" button to go to the next page and click "Check All" again. Do this for each page of addresses.

  4. Click the "Download Selected Addresses" button

  5. A CSV file will be downloaded to your "Downloads" folder. This file can be opened in any spreadsheet program such as Excel or Numbers. It can also be opened in any text editor.

Done!


Huge Improvements to Importing Addresses!

July 7, 2015, 4:43 p.m. Enhancements New New Features

We now accept more file types (CSV, vCard, XSLX) and allow you to map your columns to our fields!

You can even merge columns into one field. For example, say you have "First Name" and "Last Name". Just drag and drop your columns onto the "name" field when you are importing and those columns will be merged together.

Our goal has always been to make INYA a joy to use and we hope you like these new improvements!

You can import addresses by tapping "MENU" then "Import Addresses".


Return Address Labels are now FREE!

July 7, 2015, 4:12 p.m. New Features Enhancements

We've decided to include Return Address Labels in the Basic Account so anyone can now quickly create labels for themselves. It gives you a chance to try out the label functionality.

Go to Make Return Address Labels, type in your name and address, specify how many labels you need, a font, color, and size, click "Download PDF". Done!

Enjoy!


Customize Your Website's Text Fields

Feb. 9, 2015, 9:53 p.m. Enhancements How to Tips New Features

You can now change "Notes" to whatever you want your visitor to leave. You can also change the "Name" to something more specific as well.

Go to "Website Settings and Photos" and change "Label for 'Notes' Field" to whatever you want. By default it is "Notes".

You can also change "Label for 'Name' Field".


Easily Check Your Imported Addresses for Missing Information

Nov. 6, 2014, 11:57 a.m. Tips Enhancements New Features New

We've added a way to quickly find addresses that have missing information.

If an entry is missing required information such as "Postal Code" when you import a file, then the entry's Postal Code will be set to "!! None !!".

You can easily find these files by clicking on the tools dropdown menu then click "Look for Missing Info"


Importing Addresses Is Now More Intelligent

Sept. 24, 2014, 12:47 p.m. Enhancements

We've been busy testing and tuning our Import Addresses feature!

We've taken exports from Gmail and other popular email and address book providers and fine tuned our software to easily pull those addresses into your INYA Address List.

If you have a file that didn't import, we encourage you to try again!


Mobile and interface updates based on UI/UX testing.

Sept. 7, 2014, 10:47 p.m. Enhancements

Changes to the menu and various speed improvements.


Have an idea? We now have a full API!

June 7, 2014, 1:27 p.m. Enhancements

We have developed an API for anyone out there who wants to further expand on what INYA can do!

How about if someone adds an address to your website and it automatically is sent to a different contact manager of your choice?

Want to get a text message every time someone adds their address?

What about allowing people to text you their address and it is automatically added to your list?

Want a wordpress plugin?

The sky is the limit!

We are more excited for the ideas that you have so let us know what you'd like to do and request your API keys today by emailing help@ineedyouraddress.com!


Control Font Size for Labels & Envelopes

May 10, 2014, 3:19 a.m. Tips Enhancements New Features

You can now control the font size of the labels and envelopes. You'll find the "Bigger" and "Smaller" buttons in Print Envelopes or Print Labels.

We also snuck one other feature in. Sometimes you don't need the recipient's country to be on the label or envelope. (Like when you are in the same country as them) So we added a checkbox to "Include Recipient's Country Info".


You can now collect notes and company names!

May 9, 2014, 5:05 p.m. New Features Enhancements

We just added some new features per your feedback!

You can now display the "notes" field on your website. This means a visitor can leave some extra notes if they'd like. This is turned off by default and you can enable it by checking the box for "Display the 'notes' field on website' at Website Settings and Photos.

We have also added a "company name" field so that visitors can leave a company name if they'd like. This is disabled by default but you can enable it by checking the box for "Display the 'company name' field on website" at Website Settings and Photos.

As always, thank you for the feedback! We hope this website is a joy to use and makes your job easier!


Download Addresses as CSV or For Use With SendOutCards!

April 21, 2014, 10:17 a.m. Tips Enhancements

You have always been able to download/export your addresses from iNeedYourAddress to use them in other systems. It's your data. We just want to help you achieve what it is you are trying to do!

Now when you click "Download Selected", you have two options.

  • Download as CSV to download your selected addresses as a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file. This is the most portable format and can be imported into most systems.

  • Download for SOC to download your selected addresses as a TXT (Tab Separated Values) file. This file will import directly into your SendOutCards Contact Manager!


Importing Addresses Is Now Much Easier!

April 19, 2014, 12:18 p.m. Enhancements

We put some more work into the Import Addresses feature. Here are a few of the improvements

  • The CSV import now 'smartly' detects columns and which field it should map to.
  • Improved excel file support.

The goal here is to make the import as easy and seamless as possible. We want it to 'just work' for you!

If you are having any trouble with the import, please contact us and we'd be glad to help!


INYA Is Now More Secure with HTTPS

April 14, 2014, 11:52 p.m. Enhancements

Your data is now more secure as it is now encrypted between your device and our servers.

Look for the padlock in the address bar :)


New Columns In Address List Export

April 14, 2014, 1:14 a.m. Enhancements

There are some new columns in the Address List Export. You will now get a column for "fullname", "firstname", "lastname", "birthmonthandday", "birthmonth", "birthday".

This is so SendOutCards users can more easily import their names and addresses into the SOC Contact Manager.

Keep the feedback coming!


Event Date Is No Longer Required

April 14, 2014, 1:08 a.m. Enhancements

Due to some great feedback the "Event Date" is no longer a required field as it might not apply to some users of iNeedYourAddress.

Thank you for catching that and keep sending in the feedback!


Live Preview of Labels and Envelopes

April 2, 2014, 9 p.m. Enhancements

Quick update. You can now see a live preview of what your labels or envelopes will look like as you change the font, color and size.

You can check out how to print labels or print envelopes.


Check for Duplicates now returns better results.

March 28, 2013, 8:59 p.m. Enhancements

Made a few enhancements today. The most important one was to make the "Check for Duplicates" functionality more reliable.


The word "and" is no longer automatically converted to "And" for new addresses.

March 28, 2013, 7:59 p.m. Enhancements

If someone added their name to your address list as "Travis and Jackie Millward", the tidy up function would convert it to "Travis And Jackie Millward".

This is not desirable!

The "and" is now safe and won't be capitalized.
