Tips of the Week!

New Rotary Theme Bulletin Now Available!

We're proud to release an official Rotary branded bulletin theme, which coincides with the look and feel of the Rotary website theme! This new theme mirrors the look and feel of the new Rotary brand, including colours and fonts. Clubs and Districts can implement this new look for their bulletins and can easily adopt the new brand and share a cohesive look with Rotary.org.

Did you know you can customize the titles of your Custom Pages?

That is correct! To give you more control over formatting, we've made it simpler to format Custom Page titles. Similar to the option available for Stories, you will now see a 'Format Options' link next to the title field. Clicking on it will open a new editor window from where you will be able to easily bold, italicize, underline, change the font, colour and size of your title.

Enhanced Committee module users, did you know you can now schedule your emails to go out at a later date from within the module?

We've added an email scheduling option within the Email Center in the Enhanced Committees module! Similar to how you can schedule your emails to be sent at a later date and time from the Email Message Center, members of the committee can schedule their emails to go out at any time they prefer.

New Rotary-Based Website & Bulletin Template!

Last week, Rotary International announced the release of their new Quick Start Guide for Club Websites, which is a guide advising clubs of how they can organize their websites with the new digital guidelines in mind that clubs can refer to when designing their websites,.

We're pleased to announce the release of our new Rotary themed website and bulletin template that was made in conjunction with the release of the Quick Start Guide! As an Official Rotary International Licensee, we were involved with the Public Relations and Identity team at Rotary to build a new website theme that mirrors the look and feel of the new Rotary brand; including default content and site map, as well as incorporating shared images in the ClubRunner image library. As a result of these efforts, clubs using ClubRunner can more easily adopt the new brand and share a cohesive look with Rotary.org.

How to switch to the new theme:

Clubs using Version 3.0 can find the new theme by navigating to the Website Designer and then clicking on themes. The new Rotary theme will be the very first option there for you to select. Simply select the theme and view the changes in the preview pane. Once satisfied with the look of your website, click on publish to have your changes go live.

Once you've switched over, be sure to share the link of your website with us! To view the bulletin theme, navigate to the Bulletin Designer 3.0 and click on the Themes button.
