HUB Fluid Interface Coming Soon!

Posted by jdrizzo in HUB Alerts, HUB News, Staff

A major initiative that the University has been working towards is making our online systems more mobile friendly to our users. HUB is no exception to that goal- we will begin the process of making the system more mobile friendly next month. The first phase of making HUB mobile friendly is to roll out the HUB Fluid Interface. This will improve the navigation of the system for administrative users and allow us to roll out additional mobile features down the road.

On January 7th, 2017, the HUB Fluid Interface will be implemented. Navigation of the system will change, however the pages themselves will not be changing. This change affects only administrative users’ navigation. HUB Student Center and HUB Faculty Center navigation will remain unchanged at this time.

Please see the following training guide as an initial overview of the new HUB Fluid Interface, screenshots of the new navigations, training dates, and future phases, http://www.buffalo.edu/hub/staff/pdfs/fluidGuide.pdf. Please note: the actual screens will be UB blue as they currently are now, not green. Training sessions will be a drop-in time to view the user interface and ask questions. There will be no formal presentation or program, so you may stop by anytime during the session. Training sessions on the South Campus will be published once times are confirmed.

Additional training guides and implementation information will be coming over the course of the next two weeks. The HUB  & Student Systems Support Team will be working to create Navigation Collections with the campus to have them in place for when we implement on January 7th.
