We will host two campus community events in March highlighting essential information, key changes, demonstrations:
- A Chartfields webinar, March 17, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
- ConnectCarolina Town Hall, March 19, 3:00–4:30 p.m.
The first event is a webinar titled “Chartfields” which takes a deep dive into the new chartfields, including explaining the restructuring implemented in October 2013.
The October go-live of the ConnectCarolina Finance and HR/Payroll Project will bring fundamental changes to how business is done at the University. The new chart of accounts structure is defined by chartfields that replace the old FRS account and object. This new webinar will help you understand what the changes mean to campus. This is an all new webinar and not a repeat of the “Introduction to Chartfields” webinar presented in January 2013. All campus users are encouraged to attend this webinar, even if you attended the previous webinar.
The “Chartfields” webinar will be presented live once on Monday, March 17, 2:30-3:30 p.m. All campus accounting and financial personnel are invited to participate. We will record the webinar for future use and will send links to the recorded session later in March.
You may want to view the webinar as a group, perhaps as part of a staff meeting. There will be plenty of time for questions after the presentation, which is approximately 40 minutes.
ConnectCarolina Town Hall
We also want to remind you about the ConnectCarolina Town Hall: Wednesday, March 19, 3-4:30 p.m., Carroll Hall 111
Please encourage people in your school/unit who will be using the new system to come to the Town Hall to see demos of ConnectCarolina for Finance, HR/Payroll and Reporting. For those who cannot attend in-person, the Town Hall will be webcast. The link to view the Town Hall via webcast and additional Town Hall details are on this page.
Chartfields webinar information:
Please use this link for the webinar.
*We strongly suggest accessing the link and signing in 15 minutes before the event starts.*
Audio for the webinar will be available through the computer, not phone. To access audio, view the webinar at a computer with speakers.
Questions can be submitted via the chat feature. If viewing as part of a group, nominate someone to submit questions for the entire group via the chat feature.
If you have problems connecting to the webinar, it may be due to one of two issues with Java settings. One is your default program settings – covered in this article.
If adjusting your settings doesn’t work, your second option is to try uninstalling and reinstalling Java. If neither of these solutions works, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you.
