NUFinancials Upgrade April 2012
Café has completed the technical upgrade of NUFinancials. This is the first phase of a two-part project. The second phase will occur in 2013.
We continue to investigate intermittent issues related to expense report printing and additional login requirements. When these issues are resolved we will update our NUFinancials Status page.
Key Changes to NUFinancials
- New top row cascading menu structure (similar to FASIS)
- New pop-up field search (no need to leave the current page)
- New “Recently Used” items in Favorites menu
- The format of the Name field on the Group Meals (Last, First) will now be enforced. All information must be fully filled out for all attendees: Name, the company or organization the person is with, and their title.
- Online Voucher printing improvements:
- The window that opens with the printable page will now be a PDF instead of an html web page.
- Default orientation is now landscape (horizontal) instead of portrait (vertical)
Recorded Training Webinar
Webinars demonstrating the changes occurred on Friday, April 6 and Thursday, April 12.
