Service Updates Jan 2006 to Nov 1 2010
 
We are constantly working on improving the ClubRunner service thanks to user feedback. Below you will find information about product updates and enhancements. These changes will reflect immediately on your site, and usually do not require any actions on your part, unless otherwise indicated.
 
For any questions or feedback regarding these updates, please email support@clubrunner.ca or call 1-877-469-2582.
 
 
Rotary International Database Integration Launched
November 1 2010
 
The highly anticipated database integration project with Rotary International went live today for ClubRunner subscribers. Before today, all member updates had to be sent to Rotary International’s Data Services division via email notifications, resulting in countless hours of manual data entry. With this new automated synchronization feature, when a member profile is updated with new contact information, that change would automatically be incorporated into RI’s database within two hours, eliminating the need for clubs to formally notify RI or make the change manually through Member Access. For more information, including the official RI press release and help documentation, visit the Integration Help Center at www.clubrunner.ca/integration.
 
Feature Update: Barcode Scanner Module 2.0 (Beta)
August 17 2010
 
Now available as a beta release is the ClubRunner 2.0 upgrade to the Attendance Manager's Barcode Scanner add-on. This has now been revamped to increase compatibility with all Operating Systems. Now available as web-based software, there are no limitations regarding uploading your club's attendance records from anywhere you are! Simply login to your club's administration page and access this feature, located under "Organization" on your menu bar.
 
Each member's badge number is now stored in the member profile, rather than locally on the barcode software, which makes for quick and easy retrieval of information. Now being more centralized, this upgrade of the Barcode Scanner Module allows multiple club executives to print member labels through the club's website and upload multiple barcode files for each meeting, which is great for clubs with multiple scanners. The add-on feature is available to members with Club Executive (50) levels or better.
 
NEW: Detailed Attendance Report in District Version
July 20 2010
 
Now available is a report that shows a more detailed snapshot of all the club's attendance figures year-to-date. Searchable by month, this report will provide information about the attendance percentages by club for the previous year, the current year and the current month. It will also show the ranking of each club's attendance figures against each other, both by month and year. In addition, Club and District Executives are able to see the membership count and the beginning and end of the month, the number of members added or that have left the club, the percentage for that month and to date.
 
For more information or to comment about this new report, please contact support@clubrunner.ca.

This will provide more insight for when payments are received.
 
New Module! Member Designations
May 8 2010
 
Now out of Beta, the Member Designations feature is officially released for the District and Club versions. This module allows you to create and track a customizable list of designations for all members, such as accomplishments, awards and past positions. In addition, comments can be added for each assignment of a designation, for instance identifying the year that the award was presented, or the number of times this award was granted. Various reports allow you to print lists of all members holding a particular designation, or a member specific report showing all their designations. In addition, an export to CSV feature allows you to quickly and easily download the list of members and their contact information to Excel. Emailing all members holding a particular designation is also one click away, which automatically creates an email within the Email Message Center containing the members within a distribution list.

NEW! Payment Installment Option in MyEventRunner

Ticket prices are still based on registration date, but now there is an option to allow for an initial (payment) installment based on the time range that the registrant registers (i.e. early bird or limited time pricing).

February 11 2010
 
The Organization Chart on the District system has been upgraded to the new platform. In addition to being able to sort the positions easily using the up and down arrows, this chart is now completely independent by year, so you can make any changes to the positions and areas ahead of time.

Committees are now easily accessed from this chart, and are available for every position, including officers.

As part of the updated Organization Chart, there is now a new module specifically for Assistant Governors. Accessible by clicking on the "View AG Details" link under the Areas/Assistant Governors section, AGs can now view and edit their own clubs' executives, club information pages, create and manage their committees (with full committee module functionality), access club growth reports, and use a tailored email message service that can be used to email members, executives and directors of their own clubs only, as well as District officers. AGs automatically get access to this module by virtue of being assigned an AG of their area, and all District officers can access these modules by default.
 
Updated Feature: Dues and Billing - Payment Tracking, Account Statements & Online Payment
January 14 2010
 
We've recently updated the Dues and Billing module to allow clubs to track payments and debit/credit adjustments. This allows you to now generate Account Statements and Outstanding Balances for each member, which you can email to all or selected members. Members can also login to view their personalized billing account statement and check their balance in real time. This would display all invoices (with links to view/print the detailed invoice), as well as all payments and debits and credits that were made against their account.

New Feature: Email Bounce Back Reports
December 18 2009
 
You asked and we listened! Now you are able to monitor whether or not your email messages were received with the recently released email bounce back report feature!
 
Anyone who sends out an email will receive a Delivery Status Notification email, which will show the sender, the date the email was sent, the number of emails undelivered and the list of members who didn't receive the email, including their full name and email address. Please note that this report is generated and emailed to the sender automatically a few hours after the email has been sent. Due to the nature of bounce backs, it may take a few hours before all undelivered messages are logged. As a result, you will get updated reports as the list of undeliverable messages increase.
 
Note that you have to use the newer version of the Email Message Service and Send News Bulletin to see this feature. This is effective on both the club and district versions.
For more information about this feature update, please contact ClubRunner Support.

Club Bulletin Display in Outlook Issue Resolved
September 9 2008 
 
Due to Outlook 2007's reduced support for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), many ClubRunner users received their bulletins in an unformatted manner, specifically with the background colours, fonts and sizes, which made them difficult to read and aesthetically unpleasing.
