We strive to let you forget about the printed directory of members. Why? Because cutting down so many trees for an information which is out-of-date even before it is printed is a total non sense in our opinion.
To do so, this version now lets you access the motto of your president, governor and council chairperson.
LionsBase is now capable of keeping track of mottos as you see for the district cabinet of District 102 West:
Naturally, you can get the “history of mottos” by taking advantage of the feature introduced in version 8.0.0, namely getting the history of a given function:
As a CLBM, the motto can be stored by editing the corresponding member’s function.
Following functions can hold a motto:
District Governor (and president of the LEO branch);
The accessibility for the list of members has been improved. Instead of focusing individually on each line of information, VoiceOver will now read the block of information related to the member as a whole.
Some webmasters told us they would like to embed links into the description of an event; e.g., to add a link to an external website.
As you know, the event’s description is sanitized when accessed from the mobile application. This ensures a better User Experience (UX) by removing any fancy formatting, colors and alike.
Embedding links into the description is however totally reasonable and after thinking about it, we found a good approach. Here is a sample event as seen on a club website:
and here is how they will now be displayed in the mobile application:
As you can imagine, by extracting the links from the description, we keep it “clean” and make accessing a link very straightforward and at the same time much more accessible for the visually impaired than if we would have kept them in middle of the description.
In addition, a few bugs have been squashed and minor enhancements integrated:
the section “Partner” for a member is now more gender-agnostic in German;
we now ensure that the list of awards years (at the top of the Profile Page of a Member) is only showing “distinct years” (e.g., whenever a member received more than one MJF during a Lions Year);
support for the “Lion of the year” award is enhanced;
for a few clubs, the last sponsor/twinning club was partially hidden, this should now be prevented;
a better caching strategy has been implemented for the various committees and the list of former national conventions; all in all, those pages should be quicker to display (particularly outside of period of frequent changes like from June to beginning of July);
various internal libraries have been upgraded.
