Expanding Screen Sizes for CU*BASE GOLD

You heard about this at our Leadership Conference and CEO Strategies events, and now they’re here!  We’ll soon be making our first foray into offering larger screen sizes for CU*BASE GOLD panels, to take advantage of larger monitors being purchased both for workstations and for conference room walls.  View the introductory slides from the 2019 CEO Strategies presentation.

Where You’ll See Larger Sizes

To begin, we selected 5 of our most popular VAT (Visual Analytical Tools) analysis dashboards, such as the Loan Productivity Analysis Dashboard (Tool #1670) and the New/Closed/All Accounts Dashboard (Tool #552).  With the 20.07 release, you can use the Analysis feature on these dashboards, then use the new button in the lower-right corner to choose either standard (1024×768) or extra-large (1920×1080) size.  View sample prototypes of the VAT extra-large screens

Next up is the ever-popular Lending Queue (Tool #2 Work/View Loan Application Status). For this screen you’ll have your choice of all three sizes: standard (1024×768), large (1280×1024) or extra-large (1920×1080). View sample prototypes of the loan queue screen sizes

We’re also going to be offering multiple screen sizes with the Express Teller application.  Learn more about this on the separate kitchen page.

From there, the sky’s the limit!  Okay, maybe not the sky, but we’ll be considering which screens make sense for these new displays, focusing primarily on high-traffic, high-content screens used for analysis and day-to-day processing.  Some obvious next-ups are Member Inquiry and Phone Operator, for example.

Many CU*BASE screens, such as report screens, configurations, and simple maintenance screens, will likely remain in the standard size for the foreseeable future.  But over time we peck away at the tools and features where we can get the most bang for our buck.  Suggestions are welcome!

How to Choose a Size

There will be two ways to choose which screen size you see.  To begin, the VAT screens will be set up so you can resize them on demand, as you need them.  That way you could use the standard size at your desk, then temporarily switch to the larger size when you go into your conference room to give a presentation to your team or board.  Just look for the little 4-way cross symbol in the lower-right corner of the screen.

Later this year with the 20.11 release, we’ll be expanding the Preferences feature on the CU*BASE GOLD home page so that you can choose your preferred size.  Whenever you navigate to a screen where that size is available, the system will automatically switch to the larger size, then switch back to Standard when you exit the screen or move on to another one where that size isn’t offered.
