The latest, most sophisticated software updates to date for UnionCloud have been rolled out today following a successful tour of students’ unions.
Today, we’re releasing our biggest update for UnionCloud, our digital platform designed to support student’s unions in communicating more effectively with their members.
There are a whole suite of developments rolled out from today, with two of the most noteworthy being an improved admin dashboard and a new drag and drop functionality, allowing users to create, edit and amend page content more easily.
Both will have a massive impact on user experience, being far more intuitive and user friendly.
Other major changes to functionality include a brand new front end, real time elections dashboard, emails which allow for more customisation and dynamic filters. A full list of updates can be viewed here.
Today’s official release follows our mammoth ‘Release 26 Roadshow’, which called at the University of Manchester Students’ Union, South Wales Students’ Union and Queen Margaret University Students’ Union as well as NUS’ offices in London and Macclesfield.
At these events, almost 100 staff and officers from 38 different students’ unions were the first to learn about how the latest features will improve their productivity and presence online.
During the Roadshow, we ran a competition asking attendees to create the best Christmas-themed home page using our new drag and drop functionality. Bristol SU were crowned rightful winners with an impressive homepage boasting Christmas carols in the menu, a John Lewis advert in the main banner and their officers as elves! See it for yourself below.
If you weren’t able to make it to any of our Roadshow events, or you want to recap on what was covered you can watch our Release 26 Webinar online.
