These changes are scheduled to go live on Friday, October 14 after 9 pm PST for impacted organizations.

It’s October, and not only is it time for sweater weather, crisp days, cool nights, and beautiful fall colors in the trees, it’s also the spookiest month on the calendar!

Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls roam the streets, Hocus Pocus movies become a household staple, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller plays on repeat. :wolf: Have you decided on your costume yet? :jack_o_lantern:

But hey, good thing Bluescape’s not in the business of spooking. We’re laying out all new and improved features for the month of October, so there are no surprises when you hit “refresh” this Friday!
