An Important Update Regarding Sign In With BBID


We have important news to share about BBID and a quick update that is now rolling out.

We’re making a quick update to the screen that users encounter when they log in with Blackbaud ID. This update “paves the way” for future updates that improve school branding for the sign in experience.

Users could notice the change as early as this evening January 26, 2021.

The functionality of the screen remains exactly the same. However, its cosmetic appearance will change slightly.

After the screen with your school’s colors and branding, users who logged in with Blackbaud ID previously saw:


With this update, users will now see this as the second screen instead:

You’ll notice that the Blackbaud branding has changed from a large, centered page title, to become a slightly smaller Blackbaud logo in the top left corner, with a green line separating it from the rest of the screen.

Additionally, you’ll notice that the field formerly labeled Blackbaud ID will now be labeled Email address. This reduces the presence of Blackbaud’s brand name on the screen and reduces potential confusion. Users should continue to enter the Email address that corresponds to their Blackbaud ID.

These changes are in preparation for an upcoming enhancement which will enable school branding of the sign-in page.
Eventually, you’ll be able to replace the Blackbaud logo and the green line, with the same school logo and primary school color that your school has configured in Core.
