Blackboard Transact is an innovative, integrated technology system that manages security and financial transactions and off-campus solutions, all with the security and convenience of a single campus ID.
Transact includes a classroom door access module with the ability to add in custom academic event schedules such as spring break, commencement, or reunion dates. The existing product previously leveraged an administrator to configure events for the upcoming school year. The system had an imposed limit of 30 events hindering the creation of events beyond the capacity. Administrators were forced to periodically manually remove old events and create new ones to comply with the limit. The platform features needed being updated to provide a more sustainable and flexible approach to events and scheduling.
