National List Counts January API Release Info
In past months, we added to National List Counts–www.nationalalistcounts.com–a few exciting, new capabilities that will allow users better define count universes, enhance the user experience, specify and secure order outputs.
The Release includes:
· Asynchronous Count Requests
· Upload Codes
· Custom Layout
· DriveTime Radius
· Order File Encryption
· Merge Count Feature Improvements
Asynchronous Count Requests
Using National List Counts, you can now submit asynchronous count requests that allow you to add complex use cases into your application without impacting user workflow and user experience. Previously, in the case of complex use cases, users had to wait for the count result to return without being able to perform other tasks.
This feature allows to define a count structure in a text document and push it to National List Counts. The main advantage of this feature uploading millions of codes in the archived simple structure for unlimited use in future counts. That opens up the ability to operate on the level of ZIPs, ZIPCRRT, ZIP9 codes or even record IDs to deal with an exactly defined universe.
National List Counts now allows you to fine tune a Custom Layout for any placed order that leads to data delivery to a client. Previously, the ability to manipulate with the layout in National List Count’s orders was limited and required special setup for each predefined layout.
DriveTime further extends the Radius feature and allows you to get the closest records to a location based on travel time.
Order File Encryption
This feature allows you to encrypt your order file with your own key to ensure another layer of data security.
Merge Count Feature Improvements
The National List Count’s Merge Count feature was further enhanced to provide more flexibility. It includes an option to request faster counts without providing a breakdown by parts. It also supports optional breakdowns by any allowed selection similar to regular counts and provides the ability to operate with Query Builder counts as parts of a Merge count.
These features are released as a free enhancement and will be available to all users!
