Blackbaud ID is Coming to Smart Tuition Schools

January 11, 2018 Amy Hammond

We’ve got more good news to share regarding Blackbaud ID (BBID)—it’s also coming soon to Smart Tuition schools! If you read our previous post on BBID and the “ON” products, then you already know about the tremendous benefits this release will provide. If you didn’t read the article, here’s a quick recap:

  • A single sign-on for the Blackbaud products that schools use most (RE NXT, FE NXT, the “ON” suite, and Smart);
  • Optional two-step authentication to keep your school’s and families’ information as safe and secure as possible;
  • Access to the Blackbaud User Community (side note: if you haven’t been to the Smart Tuition Community yet, it’s definitely worth checking out).

Along with the ease of BBID, you will see a new navigation bar at the top of Smart Tuition screens that will allow users to seamlessly switch between other Blackbaud products (RE NXT, FE NXT, “ON”).

From this common navigation, users will also be able to manage their Blackbaud ID and turn on two-step authentication. Once activated, users will be required to enter a unique one-time verification code supplied via text message at login. You can learn more about Authentication Settings here and two-step authentication here. As shown in the screenshot below, simply click on your initials in the upper right-hand corner to access your Blackbaud ID Profile.

I hope you are as excited as we are about this new feature, which will make managing and navigating all of your Blackbaud products a breeze.

Early Adopter Program (EAP)
