Blackbaud Sphere Idea Bank

How does it work?
1. Sphere users submit their ideas.
2. The community discusses and votes for ideas
3. The best ideas bubble up to the top.
4. Product Management reviews the best ideas for placement on the Sphere product road map

**Please be as descriptive as possible and tell us how the idea would benefit your organization.

**For product support and/or to log a defect please contact Blackbaud Customer Support https://www.blackbaud.com/support/support.aspx

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • FAF - the login/create new account page - needs revising

      I find the user experience of the new FAF registration login page to be a bit confusing.

      https://www.kintera.org/faf/reg_new/registerPre.asp?ievent=1024199&lis=1&teamAction=none

      My eye is drawn to the "create an account" form and not the instructions at the top of the page. The instructions are also a little difficult to follow since "click here" and "Can't remember your username and/or password" all run together in one line.

      As a returning user I would not notice that I need to "click here" to login with my account information and the instructions: "Please fill out the form below" make the form seem mandatory.

      It would help…

            • Add printable User Guide to Blackbaud.com

              Most other products have a user guide that can be downloaded from Blackbaud.com and printed to make a manual. Sphere does not, but it would be handy!

              • Allow organizations to add graphics or logos to the participant emails inside the Email Template Center.

                Some organizations are getting responses from recipients questioning whether the email is spam. If the organizations had a little more editorial control over the email template, then it may possibly reduce these fears.

                • Add the discount code field to the Mobile Registration Form

                  Currently, mobile customers don't have the same options to take advantage of discounts applied to the event. Mobile customers make up 27% of our customer base. Please fix this!

                    • allow goal amount for Essentials Template to include a comma

                      The current Goal Amount display for the new Essentials Templates doesn't include a comma.

                      Most of our goals are in the hundreds of thousands. Setting a goal as $300000 looks strange on the thermometer. Displaying as $300,000 would look significantly better.

                        • Reduce time spent on duplicate sign ups

                          Currently when contact information comes over in sign up requests-- it is duplicate work if you try to change it there because the change doesn't hold in the donation section. For example, if someone typed all caps and you change it to lowercase in sign up requests--- if the person made a donation, their contact information will show up all caps even though you changed it in sign up requests. You should be able to just change it once and the changes hold.
