Introducing ClubRunner Version 3.0 Beta Preview!

We're proud to announce that we are launching a public Beta Preview of ClubRunner Version 3.0 today to all of our customers. Based on the feedback we have gathered over the years, we've redesigned many of the modules of ClubRunner, and will be releasing them in several stages, starting with the Website Designer and Content module. Hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform, ClubRunner 3.0 is not only cloud based but is also scalable, so it can support the growing needs of your club without affecting speed or stability, and takes advantage of the latest web technology. You can expect a far more intuitive, advanced and responsive experience with our new cloud-based version.

What exactly is a Public Beta Preview?

A product in public beta mode is considered to have completed its development and initial testing phase and only requires real-world testing and user acceptance. During this beta phase, you have the exclusive pass to use this brand new version of ClubRunner and have the opportunity to provide your feedback which will be used to further develop and customize this version prior to its official release. During this evaluation, your current website will not be affected. You can send us any sort of feedback related to the user experience, big or small. Didn't like the way something functioned? Don't agree with the naming or title of certain features? This is your chance to have your say! To send in your suggestions, click on the Submit Feedback link at the very top of the page, or drop us a line at feedback@clubrunner.ca.

Getting Started

The next time any member of your club who has Site Administrator (Level 30) access logs into your website, an orange button will appear at the top right of the Admin page, titled Preview Version 3.0. Only site administrators will be able to see this. This will redirect you to the new version. You will notice that the Admin menu is limited just to those modules you are previewing, which at this time are Website, Bulletin and Documents. As we release more modules under Version 3.0, they will appear within this menu.

Data Import from Version 2.0

You have the option to import your website content into the new version using the built-in content migration tool so you do not have to rebuild your website from scratch. Please note that during the Beta Preview phase, any new content you add to Version 3.0 may be deleted without any prior notice. However, rest assured that your current website will not be affected at all.

Further Help

To further assist you with getting to know the new version, we will be hosting a webinar to explain the changes and highlight the improvements of Version 3.0. Click on the link below to register for an upcoming webinar:

There are no extra fees to evaluate Version 3.0 in beta preview mode. During this phase, you will have access to all of our features and modules, including premium features. We look forward to receiving your valuable feedback and are excited to present the third generation of ClubRunner to you. Thank you for your continued support of ClubRunner.
