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.
