This Finance Division Daily Update email is for Business Managers, MOU Leads, Finance TIPs, Finance Campus Working Groups and Finance Division staff.  Finance will send these daily updates as needed. Please share with the ConnectCarolina Finance users in your school/division.

Top Issues

  • Legacy Account Fund Authority Lookup: We received a question about legacy fund create from Friday’s TIP meeting.  Users can access legacy account fund authority information by selecting the Finance Central link at the top right of the Finance Division homepage.  From there, users should sign in and go to their Inbox.  Then users should select Search UNC and then Account Request.  Search by the old Department Number to view the requests, including fund authority.
  • Payroll Journals for B09:  The payroll journals for B09 did not post as planned.  We will announce when payroll actuals for B09 and liquidated encumbrances for B09 will be available.
  • Customer Billing Management (CBM):  All billing areas using the CBM Department Default have their transactions available for customer review. Customers have through Friday, Nov. 21, to modify transactions. Any transactions sent by billing areas to CBM after Nov. 15, will have a ConnectCarolina process date of Dec 22.

    Several enhancements have been made to the CBM – Modify Charges screen:

    • A column, “Send to CC,” has been added to provide the date a transaction is scheduled to import to ConnectCarolina for processing.
    • Customers can now create and download a report of all their transactions available in CBM.
    • A “View Source Description” button was added to provide the full name of the billing area for each of the sources.  (Example: SSC = Student Stores)

Helpful Tips
