New Features and Improvements

Speakers Widget: We've added a new setting within the Speakers widget property which lets you better promote your upcoming speakers. You will now see three new settings in the widget properties page:

  • Highlight upcoming day speakers: Selecting this option will automatically apply a background color on the upcoming speaker entry
  • Show photo of highlighted speaker: This option will display the picture of the upcoming speaker within the widget itself
  • Show description of highlighted speaker: This option will display the description that was added to the speaker entry on the speakers widget.

These settings only apply to the current week/day's speaker and will automatically apply for future speakers if left enabled.

Website Designer: You can now link to your bulletin list page directly from anywhere on your site. We've included it as an option to link to via the navigation menu, links widget as well as any story or custom page. The Bulletin List page has been added under the Built-in Pages option.

Districts can also now directly link to the current year's District Organization Chart & District Organization Chart with Photos.

Terminating Honorary Members: Updates were made to the way honorary members are terminated so that the process is the same as active members. Whereas previously, honorary members were first switched to an Other User from where they could be terminated, now you can simply click on the "Mark Ex" link to terminate the honorary member.

MyEventRunner: Confirmation emails sent to registrants now also include the description of the 'add-on' (if applicable) that was part of their registration.

Attendance 3.0: In an effort to make attendance reports more clear, we've added additional rows on the meeting page, to indicate what makes up the "meeting total" label. You will now see rows indicating the number of members that attended the meeting, the number of members that did not, and the number of makeups reported before seeing the final attendance count.

Fixes and Other Changes

Website Banners: There were reports that the banner preview did not accurately match the way the banner appeared on the home page preview; this has been fixed.

Website Banners: It was noted that website banners were not displaying properly on mobile devices for a few themes; this has been corrected.

Contacts Module: When adding a contact without an email address, changes were not saved when editing the opt out preference; this has been fixed.

New Member Program: Terminated members were not being automatically removed from activities under the New Member Program; this has been resolved.

Email Opt Out: There were reports that on certain mobile devices, the unsubscribe option for emails was difficult to view on certain themes; this has been fixed.

New Bulletin Module: Updates were made to the performance of widget rendering. As a result, pre-formatted (pre-defined) widgets load much faster.

District Contacts Module: On district accounts, there was an issue where if the email address was deleted from the contact's profile, the system was not saving the changes made; this has been addressed.

District Club Map: There were instances where a club's site link would not display on the District's Club Map page; this has been fixed.

District Grants: Within existing grants, there were reports that trying to link to a URL or page on the Individual Project Report would cause the screen to freeze; this has been fixed.

District Grants: For grants that had partners listed, an issue was preventing the list of partners from being edited; this has been fixed.

Zone Directory: Clicking on the "Directory by District" on Zone websites would result in an error; this has been addressed.
