myUFL technical upgrade scheduled for weekend of March 13

By on March 4, 2015

myUFL technical upgradeThe myUFL system (my.ufl.edu) is slated to undergo a technical upgrade starting 5 p.m. on Friday, March 13. As a result, human resources, payroll, finance and related self-service menu items (including electronic W2s) will be unavailable over that weekend. Additionally, please note that the pay cycle ending March 12 will close a day early—with Time & Labor closing on Wednesday, March 11.

Beginning Monday, March 16, employees who use the myUFL system to complete HR, payroll, and/or financial transactions will see some changes to the system’s look and feel (color, font choices, etc.) and, in some cases, its functionality. All employees who enter their time and leave via the myUFL system will notice minor changes, while those who complete travel and expense transactions will notice the most differences in system functionality. Importantly, however, no training will be required, and no action will be needed by department security administrators to adjust or add security roles.

Additional information about the system upgrade and expected changes are being provided via more targeted communications to users with specific security roles.  On March 16, the myUFL login page will feature “just-in-time” information to alert users to system changes in the upgraded environment.  MyUFL system training courses, while not required to be retaken, will also be updated to reflect these changes.  For a schedule of when the updated training will be available as well as a guide to expected changes, please see the myUFL System Training section of the HRS website.

As is the case with all software, regular upgrades of the myUFL system are required to stay current and meet the university’s business demands. Regular upgrades not only ensure the university stays in step with the most current capabilities of its technology, but also can provide cost savings to the university.   Questions about the upgrade may be directed to “Grady the Gator” via askgrady@ufl.edu.
