New UR Lease Administration Project Underway

UR The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued new lease accounting guidelines that will directly affect operating leases with terms exceeding 12 months, particularly in areas with contractual / embedded lease agreements.

If you have any lease contractual agreements originating outside of Treasury, Real Estate, IT or are unsure if you manage a lease, please contact us at URLeaseAdministration@ur.rochester.eduThe UR Lease Administration team will follow the necessary steps and action to ensure those affected by the new standard are well informed and guided through a smooth transition process.

For more information and the timeline that follows this project, visit: http://www.rochester.edu/adminfinance/urfinancials/ur-lease-administration-project/. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at: URLeaseAdministration@ur.rochester.edu.

Workday 28 Release

Twice a year, UR Financials has a scheduled upgrade, the next occurring on Saturday, March 11, 2017. This edition does not have any significant end user impacts, however there will be a few new features that we want to bring to your attention:

  • A new Toggle Full Screen Viewing Mode graphical button  has been added to most reports and other grids throughout the application. The button is located above the column headings with the export and filter buttons. The new mode makes better use of screen real estate by showing more rows.

With Full Screen Viewing Mode activated, the grid now consumes the entire browser frame. To exit Full Screen View Mode, click the button again. This will shrink the grid to its usual size, restoring access to the report header, global search, and navigation.

  • The Related Actions button in header areas has been replaced with a button labeled “Actions”. The new button is most prominently seen in the blue page header area.

In other areas, the Related Actions button is still displayed as a graphical button with three dots  that is shown when hovering over an actionable item.

If you have any questions related to the upgrade, please contact the University IT help desk at x52000. Thanks
