The myUFL system (my.ufl.edu) is slated to undergo a technical upgrade starting 5 p.m. on Friday, March 13, with human resources, payroll, finance, and related self-service menu items (including electronic W2s) being unavailable over that weekend as a result.
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 will be provided in the March InfoGator and 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, please see: http://hr.ufl.edu/learn-grow/job-requirements/myufl-system-training/myufl-hrpayrollfi-upgrade/
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
