Product Updates

Get to Know the NEW DesignPLUS Sidebar!

In case you missed it, last week we announced that all Cidi Labs customers can now request a sandbox to get hands-on experience with the new DesignPLUS Sidebar!

Along with the availability of a sandbox to test-drive the new Sidebar, we’ve prepared a host of transition aides and other documentation to help you become familiar with and plan out your institution’s move to the new Sidebar, which can happen at a time of your choosing – there is no rush.

Additionally, we hosted a webinar this week to provide more information, a demonstration, and to answer many questions. If you missed the webinar, you can view the recording here.

We expect to make the new Sidebar available for installation in early August. Additionally, starting in August we will be offering new DesignPLUS training sessions and Office Hours support so that you can learn from our experts and get all your questions answered. Stay tuned for more information next month!
