Sneak Peek: ETapestry + SKY UX

At bbcon 2015 there was a lot of talk about SKY UX, a consistent, anywhere-accessible and always-modern user experience that will translate across the Blackbaud’s entire cloud portfolio.  If you attended the eTapestry Roadmap session then you learned how we’re planning to apply the best of SKY UX to eTapestry, if you missed the session then read on!

By applying key elements of SKY UX to eTapestry, we gain a modern look and feel, improved workflows, and more consistent iconography across Blackbaud products.  We won’t be able to roll out all of the improvements at once, but here are some screenshots for the SKY UX improvements planned for Q1 2016.
 
eTapestry Home Page


 Find Account Page


 Account Journal Page


With the Journal Page changes comes an important note.  When we release the first phase of SKY UX to eTapestry, we will no longer offer the Calendar View, but we will continue to offer the List View, Split View, Household List View and Household Split View.
 


We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and that you are as excited as we are about the design changes coming next year!

It looks very clean and modern! 1. Do you possibly have a place or video where we can learn a little bit more about this improvement? 2. In regards to calendar view, will we still have the option to have an organization calendar? We are utilizing the calendar for our important dates and especially for tracking grant application dates. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Beryl! We do not have a video ready at this moment, but I believe there will be one before the release. We are also looking into the possibility of setting up a "sandbox" environment for customers to log in and look around at the changes in a demo database before they are released. With regards to your second question, the My Org Calendar tile will still be available on the eTapestry Home page. The only option we're removing is viewing an account's journal in Calendar View. Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
