New Features and Improvements
New Rotary Approved Website Themes: We're happy to introduce two new Rotary website themes! Working in conjunction with the Public Relations and Identity team at RI, these themes have been tightly integrated with Rotary's brand outlined in the updated visual and digital identity guidelines. You will see these new themes in your library, titled Vision and Community. Click here to learn more.
Bulletin Themes Color Variations: We've added many new color variations for the Minimalist and Minimalist Compact bulletin themes, allowing you to customize your newsletter look even further. Service clubs and associations that use our platform will also now see a new theme called Leadership.
Mobile App: Our mobile app is back! Available for iPhones and Androids, this app allows you to view your member directory, contact your members and executives/directors, as well as read the latest articles posted to your website.
Managing Membership Types: Improvements were made to the way you change membership details, making the process easier. All membership type changes are now done through one screen, where you are presented with options to edit the active member type, terminate or change the member type to an other user.
Calendar Items: Members and visitors will now be able to download an ICS file to add the calendar item details onto their own personal email calendar.
Show/Hide Sponsors on Calendar Items Details Page: You can now also add your sponsor ads on the Calendar Items details page! The Sponsorship module allows clubs to place text or image sponsor ads on their own website as a means of generating revenue. To view the complete list and choose which pages to display the ads on, click on the Sponsor Settings link from the Sponsors page. If the option for subsequent pages is turned off, the content on those pages will expand across what would have been the reserved right column meant for those ads.
Mail Merge Fields in Subject Lines: As per your feedback, subject lines for emails being created within the Dues and Billing, Events and Volunteer modules will display the name for those items on the screen, if it has specified rather than mail merge tags, which was the case before.
Fixes and Other Changes
Mobile View: Improvements were made to the mobile view of websites.
District Club Maps: The map on the Club Information page on District websites now uses the latitude and longitude values to display the club's meeting location.
District Launchpad: It was reported that the "Membership this Month" report was not including custom active member types in the total membership count, causing a discrepancy between the dashlet on the launchpad which was accurate; this has been fixed.
Image Library: The system was not saving which folder in the library you were last in during a session; this has been fixed.
Mini Calendar Widget: On our next-gen themes, the mini calendar automatically highlights all days that have events scheduled. This was not the case for those using Internet Explorer as their preferred browser; this has been addressed.
Date Picker on Contact Profiles: When editing a contact's birth date or anniversary, the date picker previously only displayed options for the past ten years, leaving you to type in the actual date; this has been fixed. For birthdays, you can now go back as far as 110 years through the date picker. For anniversaries, you can go back as far as 100 years and forward 3 years.
Email Statistics: Improvements were made for better reporting accuracy.
Default Year for Bulletins and District Org Chart: When you are directed to the bulletin list or the district organization chart, the system should automatically display information for the current year. It was reported that on occasion, these pages were directing to past or future years; this has been fixed.
