Tips for the Week!

Did you know that you can choose to hide the club motto from appearing on the Club Information Widget?

Clubs on Version 3 can customize their welcome widget even further and now choose whether to hide or display their motto. By default, the setting is set to always display the club motto. To hide it, click on the cog wheel on the widget to go to the properties screen. Under the 'Content Properties' section, you will see a checkbox next to "Show Club Motto". Simply uncheck it to hide it from appearing on the home page.

Did you know that you can customize the padding properties for all standard widgets in Version 3.0?

Due to popular demand, we've added the option to be able to customize the padding properties for all widgets. Top, bottom, left and right padding properties can be defined independently from the Properties screen of each widget, meaning you can control the spacing around each widget, without having to alter any code! Please note, this option is only available for all standard widgets and does not apply to custom widgets.

These are just a few of the changes we've made but there's still a lot more on the way! Have a suggestion you'd like to share with us? Email us at feedback@clubrunner.ca!

Tips for the Week!

Did you know that you can delete both active and inactive events from the Events listing in MyEventRunner?

You asked for it! We're happy to introduce the ability to delete both active and inactive events from your MyEventRunner Events Listing. Under the Actions column, you will see a 'delete' button which will allow you to remove the events you no longer want on your Events listing.

Did you know that you can archive your bulletin directly from the send screen?

A new option on this screen, you now have the ability to archive your bulletin immediately after sending it. To do this, simply select the Archive checkbox under the "Send Your Bulletin" section. Even if you have scheduled your bulletin to be sent at a later date, if this option is selected, your bulletin will be archived immediately.

Did you know that you can cancel incorrect transactions made from within the Dues and Billing module?
We know club treasurers will appreciate this! For cases where the wrong invoice is generated for members, you can cancel the transaction instead of entering a credit or debit transaction to adjust the outstanding balance. To do this, from the Dues and Billing page, click on the 'Cancel Transaction' link on the left column under the Statement section. From here, you will be able to select the member you wish to cancel the transaction for, view their statement, select the transaction date and define the amount that is being voided. All changes will directly be displayed on the member's account statement.

Tips for the Week!

Did you know you that when creating new stories, you have the option to copy an existing story?
Customers using Version 3.0 will now see a new option on the top right of the "Create New Story" page entitled "Copy from an Existing Story". With this option, you have the ability to copy and edit your existing stories and save them as a new story. The copied version will include the story title, brief and content and if the display options such as the author, date or social media button settings were specified, they too will be brought forward to your new story. You can then go in and make changes, add design elements, and have the option to display the story on either your homepage or bulletin.

Did you know you can customize the Club Information Widget with custom links?

That's right! A popular request, we've added the ability to add custom links within the Club Information (Club Meeting Information) widget. Within the widget's property screen, you will see two new fields under the "Content Properties" section: "Custom Link URL" and "Custom link Text". Here you can add a link to any external website or your site/custom pages. The text you input in the Custom link Text field will display on the widget. This option is great for clubs to link to a site page with directions to the club meeting location, or the club's facebook or twitter page, etc.

Introducing Email Communications 3.0! 

We are proud to introduce our new and improved Email Communications module on Version 3.0! Not only is it faster but it also allows you to have more control over your emails. Upon logging in, you will notice a new link on the Admin Page titled "Email Communications" under the My ClubRunner section. To transfer over your emails from the old Version 2.0 system to this, you will see a button titled "Migrate Emails" which will automatically transfer all the emails and drafts that were created in the past 3 months. For the time being, you can continue to use the Version 2.0 system as well however please note that emails created using this new system will not display on the Version 2.0 system.

Similar to your website and bulletin layout options, did you know that you can now pick from two more fresh new layout options to design your custom pages? 

That's right! Based on your suggestions, we introduced new templates to the Website and Bulletin designer earlier last month. Now, these options are also available for all custom pages that you design! To view and apply these templates to your website, simply click on the "Content Templates" button when you are in the designer screen. You will see these templates described as "Narrow Left, Wide Right and above Full Width and Full Width above Equal Left and Right".

We look forward to receiving your feedback on the new Email Communications module! Please continue to send us your suggestions and feedback to feedback@clubrunner.ca
