Current Status

Apple is live and ready for orders in ePro Vendor Catalog!

Top Issues

  • Web Travel:   More bug fixes took place last night.
    • Users were reporting that they could not view the entire chartfield string when approving a request.  A fix allows users to hover their cursor over the chartfield entry to view the entire string.
    • When saving Favorites, the account was being saved as well. Now, the account will be optional when defining Favorites and the account will be validated as part of the chartfield string when it is entered by the user for a specific document.
  • ePro 9.1: Fisher Scientific: Some users reported access to multiple Fisher Vendor catalogs. The issue was corrected last night and all Fisher Scientific Vendor Catalog users should have access to the correct catalog.
  • Missing Vendors:  If a vendor is missing when the user tries to enter a voucher or update campus vendor, please take the following steps:
    • Look up the vendor in inquiry.
      • If the vendor exists, open a Remedy ticket and supply vendor ID and PID (if employee or student).
      • If the vendor doesn’t exist, it was not converted.   Submitting a Remedy ticket is not needed.  The user needs to create a new “add vendor” request through the Campus Vendor functionality.

        Note that if a vendor is missing and the user is trying to complete a transaction related to travel or a travel reimbursement, they must enter a remedy ticket with the PID of the vendor for which the travel transaction is being completed.

  • Trust and Trust Revenue Budgets: The project team is going to unpost all budget activity and then reload.  This will resolve the missing budgets issue.  This should be completed by the end of this week.
