Customize and Configure your eBulletin with the Dynamic Bulletin!

The eBulletin is an effective tool that Clubs use to boost membership growth, retention and public relations. The Dynamic Bulletin will allow you to do just that!

Currently in beta version, the new Dynamic Bulletin not only offers multiple designs but is also much more flexible in its layout and style options. You are now able to design and build your eBulletin the way you want it, with all the content you want to share from your website.

The Dynamic Bulletin 2.0 Features:

- Customizable Banner Graphics & Headers: You will have the ability to upload your own custom banner header image or design your header using 2 logos and formatted text.
- Flexible Layouts & Custom Widgets: Your eBulletin will no longer have a static look and feel to it. This feature will allow you to design your eBulletin in the same way that you would design your home page with Website Designer 2.0. You will be able to decide which components to display on your eBulletin and where!
- Custom Content Widgets: Not only will you be able to display multiple widgets on your eBulletin but you will also have the opportunity to create and display customized content such as announcements, images, about the club blurbs, large graphics, and more.

You will find the Dynamic Bulletin editor under the ‘Club eBulletin’ section in the admin screen. We will port over all your bulletin content to the new designer and select a default layout to get you started so you will not have to worry about converting your content. Get ready to give your weekly newsletter a major overhaul!
