Sent to the KFS-Update Mailing List on Feb. 20, 2018.
We are pleased to announce that the latest version of the Kuali Financial System was successfully implemented over the weekend and is now live for all campus users. While this is only the first phase of the upgrade – and we plan to bring you more new features in the coming fiscal year – we hope you will find using KFS 7 an improved experience.
Before You Start Using KFS 7
You can log into KFS 7 via ZotPortal the same way you have in the past, but we recommend clearing your browser cache beforehand. Instructions for clearing your cache are provided below:
If you have any bookmarks leading to KFS, you may need to update those, as well. If you haven’t already done so, we also recommend looking through our What’s New in KFS 7 Page. This page includes useful information about working with the new sidebar, accessing the Action List Outbox, adding a My Favorites section, and more. The most significant changes are to the "look and feel" of the system, but while the color palette and some fonts have changed, you will find the underlying processes and functionality of the system remain mostly the same.
Thank You to All who Contributed
This upgrade represents more than nine months of development and testing for the KFS Team, a group composed of technical and functional experts from Office of Information Technology (OIT) and the Division of Finance & Administration. Thank you to all of the users whose involvement contributed to the completion of the first stage of this project.
We would especially like to thank all members of the KFS Team and our Subject Matter Experts who worked so diligently to develop, test, and correct any issues along the way. We also want to acknowledge the valuable support we received from our community of testers. The teamwork was outstanding and played an important role in the success of this implementation.
If You Encounter any Issues
The KFS Team hopes the transition to this new version of KFS will be relatively easy, but if you encounter any errors or bugs, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We expect to receive a higher volume of support requests this week, so your patience is appreciated. For more information about KFS 7, see the Project website.
