Campus staff and faculty members will find several minor changes to the way UCI’s financial system looks on Monday morning. These user interface changes will be installed over the weekend and only affect the navigation built into the Kuali Financial System (KFS). ZotPortal will not be changed. While we do not anticipate these changes to significantly impact business, we’ve detailed them for you below. Click here to see a bigger version of the screenshot above.

  • Action List and Doc Search Links Moving

The Action List and Doc Search links are moving from the top-right corner of the screen to the left-side main menu directly under the Home button. Keep in mind that the main menu is collapsed when you are working on a document, so you may only see icons for the Action List and Doc Search.

  • New Icons in Main Menu

This update adds new icons to the main menu, which will make it easier to visually scan the main menu and find the sections you use most. The icons will also be visible when the main menu is collapsed, making it more user friendly when you are working in a document. You can hover over the icons to see a description.

  • More Items Button

Currently, the main menu has a scroll bar when all of the links accessible to you can’t fit on the screen. After this update, the scroll bar will be replaced with a "More Items" button that will pop out the additional links.

  • User Menu

The menu that appears as the user's name is also moving from the top-right corner of the screen into the main menu on the left.

If you need additional help working with the campus financial system, see the Navigating KFS page in the KFS Basics Guide. If you have any further questions, please contact the KFS Help Desk at or 949-824-7001.
