Tip of the Week!

Did you know that you can view the archive of all RI Integration updates that were attempted in the past 3 months?

Recently released, you are now able to view an archive of all the RI Integration updates that were attempted since the release of this feature. This new feature will store and allow you to view updates from the past 3 months. Updates are shown by member, then grouped by a ‘field type’. You will be able to see whether an update was successful or not and the reasons why if it wasn’t. If a manual e-mail was sent with the member information, you will be able to see the date sent. Found under the Membership tab on the top menu, the default view is for all members, however you can select a specific member from the drop down option. Please note, that only members with updates will be found in this drop down list.

Tip of the Week!

Did you know it is now possible to add your own favicon to your ClubRunner website?

By default, we’ve added a customized browser icon which will be displayed right next to your website URL in the address bar. Thus, when an individual adds your site to their favourites list or creates a shortcut of your website link, the customized icon is displayed on their computer rather than a default html icon.

Should you wish to change the favicon or personalize it further, click on Start Designer in the Website Designer 2.0 section and navigate to ‘Edit Favicon Logo’, found on the top menu bar. Upload your .ico file from your computer and click on save.

Recently released, this feature is just an additional way we are enabling our customers to customize their ClubRunner experience. For further assistance, please contact our support department by e-mailing support@clubrunner.ca.

2011 Rotary International Convention - Recap!

With over 20,000 Rotarians in attendance, the 2011 Rotary International Convention in New Orleans was an exciting and fun-filled event for everyone.

During this action packed event, the ClubRunner booth had a variety of activities taking place every day. From an overview of the newest ClubRunner enhancements to the launch of ClubRunner’s new Mobile App, the booth was bustling with activity! ClubRunner Champions joined the team as they happily shared their experiences and best practices with current as well as up-and-coming customers.

The ClubRunner team had an amazing time meeting all of our customers and listening to all of their wonderful suggestions. We also had the opportunity to meet with Peter Markos, Chief Information Officer and General Manager of Rotary International about the future of Rotary as well as the importance of Social Media within Rotary. ClubRunner is proud to have been the first vendor to have integrated its database with Rotary International and is excited to continue to work closely with Rotary International on this and other projects.

On May 25th, we had our loyal customers join us at the launch party to celebrate the release of the ClubRunner Mobile App. As we held live demonstrations to highlight the app, many customers helped one another download the app on to their phones. We were ecstatic to see that the Mobile App was an instant hit! In fact, the download statistics tripled during the convention!

Thank you to everyone who visited the ClubRunner booth and made this event memorable! Your feedback is important to us and we appreciated all of your suggestions. We'll be adding pictures and videos from the convention soon! Do you have pictures or memories you want to share with the ClubRunner Team?
