On April 23, after a scheduled upgrade completes, KFS users will experience a new look and feel to the Kuali Financial System (KFS). The upgrade to KFS 7 will include usability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
Within the new interface, you’ll notice right away that all of the functions of KFS that were formerly organized in tabs have been gathered and organized in a persistent (always accessible) menu that can be hidden to expand the central workspace.
Here are just a few other immediately noticeable improvements:
And that’s not all! Other enhancements include rendering all functionality within the same browser tab, faster document load speeds, and a variety of bug fixes.
No business functions will change with this upgrade. Cynergy will remain the same for the time being.
More information and pre-upgrade instructions will be provided within the next few weeks.
