Upgrade promises better user experience in UWinsite Finance

An upgrade to UWinsite Finance over the weekend introduced a fresh look to the system.

While there are no major changes to functionality, users will notice an updated landing page for Self-Service Procurement and variations in the steps for Payment Requests.

Controller Gillian Heisz advises anyone creating purchase orders or payment requests to review the videos in advance. Additional resources are available at UWinsite Finance - Resources - Self Serve Procurement.

Users should always log in from the UWinsite Finance page; the system performs best using the Firefox web browser, adds Heisz.

Those who use spreadsheet uploads for journals or expenses will likely be prompted to upgrade to the latest release of ADFDi software with their first upload and will be guided through the necessary steps. Visit the R13 Upgrade webpage for assistance. The UWinsite team will keep this page up-to-date with tips and answers to user questions.

Monthly training sessions beginning in September will help users get the most out of the system; view the September schedule and register online.
