Week 28: Tip of the Week

#28: Did you know that you can collect various payments online for your club?

With ClubRunner’s Online Payment & eCommerce Module, you can now collect payments online (either by check or credit card) for almost anything you choose! Sell raffle or fundraising tickets, request donations for a worthy cause, collect registrations and other fees for events are just a few of the many things you can do with this module. Also, since it’s already integrated with the Dues and Billing Module, you’ll also be able to collect online payments from members for the invoices that you send out.

To learn more about this module, contact a member of the ClubRunner Team or visit our official website.

New Feature: District AG Module

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: District Org Chart by Year

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. Organization charts can be set up in advance for an unlimited number of years, rather than just the current and next year. Committees are now easily accessed from this chart, and are available for every position, including officers.

Week 27: Tip of the Week

#27: Did you know that you can now determine if your email messages were received?

There’s no need to wonder ever again whether your email communications have reached their intended recipients or if they got lost in cyberspace. ClubRunner now will send out an email bounceback report to the sender of email messages. You will receive a report with a list of all members whose addresses resulted in a bounceback, along with their corresponding email address automatically a few hours after the email has been sent and any updated reports if applicable.

ClubRunner gets a Makeover in 2010!

Our development team is busy working on many product enhancements as suggested by our users. We are excited to announce that 2010 brings a new level of automation, communication and database management to the Rotary world with spectacular additions.

Changes to ClubRunner Module Interfaces. You will gradually notice the Graphical User Interface (GUI) updated and opening in a new window to provide a clean and sleek design, making it easier to navigate and to read data. This has already taken effect for the following features:

  • Member Profile
  • Committees Module
  • Email Message Center
  • Member Lists (Active, Inactive & Others)
  • Account Statements
  • Active Request Update
  • Dues & Billing
  • Edit Executives & Directors
  • All Reports

Eventually, all modules will be transitioned to the new platform, at which time you will be able to access each feature through convenient drop down menus. We are excited about this technological upgrade and once ported over entirely, we will be able to introduce more flexibility and customization. Stay tuned for more information about dynamic changes to ClubRunner or feel free to contact us.
