Preview of the Budget Tabs

The Budget Tabs show which of your budgets are set as default, current or fixed. When selecting your budget using the dropdown navigation, the budget tabs are displayed in word form next to the title of your budget.

We are streamlining this function for the redesign, and the word-based tabs will be replaced with a letter-based icon in the left-hand side of your SBS Online interface:

D = Default
C = Current
F = Fixed

This reduces the space taken up by the feature and provides a quick overview of how your budgets are categorised.

About this blog series

As mentioned in the previous blogs of this series, the redesign of our school budget management software SBS Online will greatly improve the user experience, make financial planning easier and save significant time when navigating across the menus.

We have always concentrated on functionality and performance over cosmetics. However we feel that it is about time SBS Online had a bit of a facelift.

In preparation for this we will post several blogs from now until the release to give you a taste of the differences and similarities between the current software and the new design before it goes live.

Our support before, during and after release

We are working hard to ensure that the redesign will greatly improve the user experience, make your budgeting easier and save you time when navigating across the software.

It’s also very important to us that the update causes minimal disruption to our users. We’re excited for you to see the redesigned software in full and we’re confident that this series of blogs will ensure that you are familiar with how it looks before it is even released!

The vast majority of menu items and sub-menu page locations will remain untouched. They may just appear in a different layout. We love that SBS Online is simple to use and intuitive and this will remain central to the redesign brief.

On the release day the SBS Online Service Desk team will be on hand as ever to help you with any queries.
