PeopleSoft Finance will be down for an upgrade starting at 5pm on Thursday, March 21. The system will be unavailable on Friday, March 22 and will reopen to users on Monday, March 25.

Please plan to have any time-sensitive transactions completed in the system before the Thursday evening downtime.

For PurCard reallocations, PeopleSoft Finance will be available on Thursday, March 21st, until 5pm, so you will have all day available for reallocation.  The reallocation deadline will be extended until Monday, March 25th.

Users can expect minimal change to the user interface, and two changes in functionality:

  1. Spreadsheet journal uploads will go straight into PeopleSoft (will no longer require the current workaround)
  2. Speedtypes and Speedcharts will be replaced by "Accounting Tags" (new name, very similar functionality).

After the upgrade, it will be important to clear your browser cache before logging in, and updated user guides describing new functionality will be available.

See the PeopleSoft Upgrades website for more information.
