The Finance System upgrade is complete and the system is accessible again. 

When accessing the system for the first time after the upgrade, please clear your browser cache before logging in.  Instructions on how to do that can be found here.

The Finance System will be unavailable starting at 5:00pm on Friday, December 7th to install a system upgrade.  Please ensure you are logged out of the system by 5:00pm on that day to avoid losing any work once the upgrade begins.

We are projecting the upgrade to be completed by 6:00pm on Saturday, December 8th.  IT and Finance announcements will go out once the system is available again.  An updated alert will also be posted to this page.

When accessing the system for the first time after the upgrade, please clear your browser cache before logging in.  Instructions on how to do that can be found here.

Slow report generation times have been resolved.  During peak reporting periods (9am - 11am during middle of month), some users were experiencing wait times of 5-10 minutes for Monthly Detail Reports, SPCC Recon Reports, etc. to post to their report manager.  The average report generation time should now be between 30 - 90 seconds.  Please call Accounting Technology at 8/4866 if you experience slow report generation times moving forward.

Accounting Technology has seen issues where the nVision Drilldown add-in for excel does not work on a Windows 7 computer that has Office 2016 installed.

We are recommending that users experiencing these issues put in a Desktop Services Request to have their computer re-imaged with Windows 10 / Office 2016 in order to regain drilldown functionality.

Alternatively, we have designed the public query JGL0029_NVISION_DETAIL that anyone with run-query access in the Finance System can use to get their drilldown data. This query merges drilldown data into one report (i.e. AP Voucher details will be included with Journal details for ATV activity, deposits, etc.)
