Blackbaud SKY UX is Here for K-12 Schools!

June 28, 2017 Janet Wittenberg

As you’ve likely heard or seen this morning, the "ON" Products have gotten an exciting new look and feel today! This update is a step forward in our commitment to a complete cloud strategy and our vision for a whole school of solutions on one cohesive platform.  

The EAP for this update has been underway for a little over a month with 33 schools.  Overall, the schools are going about their business as usual and generally seem to appreciate the cleaner more modern look and feel.  Now the “ON” Products will match the interface you’re used to if you’re using Raiser’s Edge NXT and/or Financial Edge NXT.  

What do you need to do to prepare for this change?   

  • Prepare your internal stakeholders including Parents, Students, Teachers and administrative staff. You can use this template to personalize for your school:  https://www.blackbaud.com/files/support/guides/demo/redirects/k12/skyux.aspx  

  • Sit back and relax!  All the functionality in the "ON" Products will remain the same.  The update is small color and font changes but does not change navigation in the product.
