New Features and Improvements

Attendance 3.0 – Multiple Banked Makeups

In response to user requests, we have introduced the Add Multiple Banked Makeups feature to the Attendance module. From the Makeups screen you can enter a single makeup date and description, and then select all members who reported this makeup for their banked makeups. This helps streamline event attendance entry.


Attendance 3.0 – Closed Meeting Makeups

Makeups can now be reported against closed meetings. Previously, you could not apply makeup attendance after a meeting had been closed in the Attendance module. With this new functionality, the meeting is re-opened for the purpose of adding makeups. Note that any additional changes in rules and settings will impact the attendance recalculation.


Stories 3.0 – Facebook Tags

Facebook tags have been added to the Stories 3.0 Social Media bar. When a site visitor clicks on the Facebook icon, a story thumbnail, title and brief are automatically created. This makes it easier to spread the word about your club activities through social media, and drive more traffic to your club site. 


Duty Roster 3.0 – Group Flags Fix

The Duty Roster Group Flags function allows users to track duty groups and tasks. Previously, groups were not displayed if no volunteers had been assigned to the task within it. Groups will now display, even if no volunteers have been assigned. This change makes tracking duty groups and assigning volunteers to tasks easier. 


MyEventRunner - District ID

MyEventRunner events created with Zone and PETS accounts now display the District ID of attending members. 


Email Services - Added Details for Zone Accounts

When a Zone account user views the recipient list of an email, more details are now visible through the Expand List popup. 


Fixes and Other Changes

    • District Link: The District website link on pages belonging to non-Rotary clubs now populates correctly.  
    • News Widget: The News Widget would always display the author name, even if it was not set to do so. This has been fixed.
    • Volunteer Emails: Some users reported that their email clients truncated volunteer invitation emails,  cutting off the registration link. This problem no longer occurs.  
    • Resend Email: Previously, deleted and deceased members would receive old emails sent with with the Resend Email tool. They are now filtered from the recipient list, regardless of when the message was orginally composed. 
    • Event Planner Registrations: Event Planner public registrations were unable to recognize different number formatting used in some countries. For example, countries where commas are used instead of periods for fee amounts. This has been fixed. 
    • Attendance 3.0: Some browsers failed to display the Save button on the the Rules and Settings page. This error no longer occurs.

Service Updates (February 5, 2015)

New Features and Improvements

Website 3.0 – Faster Publishing
We’ve made significant improvements to our rendering service. This will result in speedier publishing when making changes to your website.

Website 3.0 – Homepage Story Widget
We’ve introduced a new feature to the Homepage Stories Library Widget. The “Items to Display” feature sets a customizable cap on the number of stories which will be displayed on the homepage. The default setting is 25, but this can be changed by editing the Story Widget properties. It’s a good idea from a web design perspective to limit your visible stories to no more than two or three page scrolls.

eBulletin 3.0 – Archived Bulletins
When reviewing your archived bulletins, you can now see when a given bulletin was last sent, and when it was archived. This makes bulletin management easier.

Download Member Data – Privacy Settings
You now have a new field available when downloading your managing your membership list data. When downloading member data, you have the option to include member privacy options. These will be displayed in separate columns in the resulting Excel file download.

Website 3.0 – Items in Deleted Tab Automatically Removed
When you delete a story or photo album from your homepage, it is placed in the Deleted tab of the relevant library. You may restore the story or album to the Published library for a period of three months. After this, the item is automatically deleted.

SSL Certificates – Security Update
We’ve successfully updated all our SSL certificates to comply with SHA-2’s highest security requirements. Google Chrome recommends SHA-2 standards as the benchmark for web security. This improvement means your data enjoys a high degree of protection.


Fixes and Other Changes

  • Events 1.0: This module is no longer supported and no longer accessible. Users are asked to switch to Event Planner, which now includes the Volunteers module.
  • Member Profiles: When printing a member profile, attendance information is now correctly taken from v3.0, provided the club has made the switch to v3.0 for that module.
  • Attendance 3.0: Users reported errors with member type filters when using the Print Member List function. This has been fixed.
  • District Site: Club executives can now edit the Rotary International Member ID. Previously, this ability was limited to District Site Administrators.
  • District Site: The Club Information page on the district site would display Events and Speakers, but did not display titles for those sections. This has been fixed.
  • Volunteers Module: Previously, the removal of the volunteer signup list from a published event was sometimes not reflected on the website. This has been fixed.
  • Download Member Data: This tool now properly pulls up the correct year as of January 1st. It now treats July 1st as the start of a new year.

Service Updates (January 22, 2015)
Posted by Pieter van Hiel on 27 January 2015 12:13 PM

New Features and Improvements

Attendance 3.0 Beta – New Print Member List Filters
Clubs beta-testing the Attendance 3.0 module are now able to customize printed member lists, thanks to new filters. The Print Member List feature now allows users to filter their member list according to Active/Honorary Members as well as non-member Other User contacts.

Site Pages – Page Removal
Site pages that have been removed will be deleted after a period of three months. Until that time, removed pages remain accessible through the Deleted tab in the Site Page Library

MyEventRunner – District ID Added to Reports
Tracking event attendance is now easier for Zone accounts. District ID number will now be added to MyEventRunner. Members must use their ClubRunner login when registering in order for the District ID to be saved.

New Member Program – Activity Lists Sorted by Sequence ID
Your New Member Program Activities can be sorted in sequence, with the addition of a sequence ID field. Currently created activities are assigned a sequence ID of “1”, but this can be edited as needed.  

Country Codes – Réunion Added
The French Island of Réunion has been added to the country codes in telephone fields, allowing contact and club information to be accurately added.  


Fixes and Other Changes

  • Bulletins: Changes made to current bulletin banners were also reflected on archived past bulletins. This no longer occurs.
  • Custom Pages:  When users create a new custom page using the homepage widget, their page is automatically added to the homepage as well as the custom page library.
  • Club Documents: The “Uploaded On” information column accurately updates when a new document is added. If a document is uploaded again, the field automatically reports the date of the latest upload.
  • Photo Albums:  Deleted photo albums were appearing as links on the homepage. This has been fixed.
  • Attendance 3.0 Beta:  The My Attendance and Print Version links have been fixed.
  • Club Logos: When uploading a new club logo with v3 of ClubRunner, v2 pages did not reflect this change. This has been fixed. New logos appear on all pages.
  • Custom Distribution Lists: If users attempted to enter a Custom Distribution List name longer than 50 characters a general error occurred. List names longer than 50 characters can no longer be entered.
  • Venue Maps: Venue Maps were not refreshing when updated with ClubRunner v3. This is now fixed. If no map is provided, ClubRunner generates a default Google Maps link based on the latitude and longitude set for club meetings.
