SKY UX Update

We’re continuing to update and modernize Blackbaud Financial Edge NXT, working behind the scenes to update to the latest version of SKY UX—the underlying framework that allows us to deliver a more cohesive user experience across many of our products.

We’ve recently released updates to Fixed Assets. You can see product screenshots and learn more about these enhancements by checking out What's New.

The next capabilities we plan to release as part of this effort will include the following areas:

  • Credit Cards
  • Deposits and Payments
  • Journal Entry
  • Payables

For more detail about these enhancements, check out What's Next.

End of Support for Crystal Reports

Beginning on December 15, 2021, you will no longer have the ability to create or edit custom reports using Crystal Reports in Blackbaud Hosting Services.
