When you return to work on Monday, Dec 10, you will be able log in and work in ConnectCarolina. Some important questions you’ve asked us: Why noon? Don’t we usually schedule planned outages after work hours? You’re right. We try our best to limit planned outages to night time or weekends. In this case, there are more updates than we usually have and that takes more time. What about students and faculty who are entering and viewing final grades this weekend? We scheduled the outage for the ConnectCarolina Student Administration component is in as small a window as we could make it. The Student Administration outage is from 10:00 pm on Sat, Dec 8 until 8:00 am on Sun, Dec 9. Can I still get into ConnectCarolina after 12:00 pm on Friday, Dec 7?

Email Communications Send Date: July 12, 2021 From: Janet Rupert, Director, Accounts Payable & Vendor Services To: Staff who create vouchers to pay students Subject: Reminder of Student Payments Moving to GradStar You are receiving this message because you have access to create vouchers in ConnectCarolina. Hello, Do you create vouchers to pay students? If so, we invite you to a webinar to learn more about changes coming to student payments. Reminder: Student Payments Moving to GradStar As a reminder, beginning August 1, 2021, payments that directly benefit education-related expenses for undergraduate or graduate students will no longer be paid through the campus voucher system. To ensure the University remains compliant, the system will prevent you from saving your voucher if you use an account that can only be used in GradStar. Join Us for a Webinar to Learn More Join us for the Changes to Student Payments for Voucher Preparers Webinar on Tuesday, July 20 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. In this session, we plan to: Give a high-level overview of student awards and where each type is entered.

Until recently, when employees left the University, the last department they worked in was responsible for paying out unused vacation and bonus leave, even if the employee had only been with the department a short time. That’s recently changed. On July 1, 2018, the University created a central pool to fund the payout of vacation and bonus leave when employees leave the University. Central Leave Pool Balances Payouts The new pool for leave payouts makes it easier for departments to plan expenses because they pay for terminal leave payouts in steady and predictable increments, instead of large, unpredictable payments when employees leave. The central pool also balances the burden of leave payouts across departments. For example, if a long-term employee takes a position in a different department and retires shortly after, the new department no longer has to fund the entire payout. On July 1, 2018, the University created a central pool to fund the payout of vacation and bonus leave when employees leave the University. Beginning with the July 6, 2018 paychecks, 1.2% of each source that funds the pay for SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty leave-eligible employees will be charged to the central leave pool. The charge will appear on account code … Read more
Hello, As a follow-up to the message below that was sent out last week, we are sending this email to remind you of the changes going into the system this evening. Along with these changes, one additional change will be going into the system at the same time. On the Review Vendor page, you will only be able to search for a vendor using that person’s PID. In the coming weeks, we will be making similar changes to other finance pages in ConnectCarolina and will let you know when those changes are going into the system. Thank you for your continued understanding and flexibility, The ConnectCarolinaTeam To: Anyone with Access to the Independent Contractor Pages Send Date: Friday, October 26, 2018 Subject: Changes in Access Hello, We are sending this message to let you know about changes to pages you may have access to in ConnectCarolina. Please read this information carefully. Information Technology Enterprise Applications takes its responsibility for securing our employees’ sensitive information (including social security numbers) very seriously. The changes we are making this week will tighten security by limiting the number of places where a social security number (SSN) is displayed and reducing the number of individuals who … Read more
Reminder: A change in the timing of budget-checking on vouchers and purchase requisitions is coming Thursday, February 1. We’ve received some questions about this change. Here are the answers. About the Transition to the New Timing The changes will be in effect starting the morning of Thursday, February 1. This means that vouchers and purchase requisitions created on February 1 or after won’t show as expenses in the Commitment Control ledgers (and won’t show in InfoPorte) until they’re fully approved. Vouchers and requisitions created before February 1, 2018 will continue on the same path they’re on and will remain in the Commitment Control ledgers the way they do today. Why are we changing the timing of budget checking? The current practice of budget-checking vouchers and requisitions before they are approved reserves funds at the time of creation. This causes several problems: When approvals are delayed and completed in a different month, transactions in Commitment Control and the General Ledger get out of synch, causing confusion. When vouchers or requisitions are denied, the budget is not always released automatically and sometimes requires time-consuming manual intervention to fix. When the release of funds is delayed, they are not available for other purposes. Changing … Read more
You can now create templates for the vouchers you create on a regular basis, such as student stipends or recurring payments. Starting with a template means you have fewer fields to fill in when creating these vouchers. One of the best features is that it is easy to create the template because you use the same process you use to create vouchers now. For instructions see Working with Voucher Templates. If you missed it, you can also watch a recorded webinar (held 12/15/17) that covered creating and modifying templates: Creating a Reusable Template for Campus Vouchers Webinar.
General information and tips and tricks for using InfoPorte.
In this presentation, attendees will receive tools and ideas used by the Vice Chancellor for Research’s Research Administration Service Center to provide customers with accurate and understandable reports from raw data exported from UNC Finance Systems (InfoPorte). These tools should provide (1) an increase in transparency by allowing Researchers to make informed financial decisions, (2) a reduction in reporting errors by eliminating and/or reducing manual entry and, (3) a reduction in the time taken to generate reports by increasing automation through the use of formulas.

When it comes to reports that show how an employee is funded, it’s not one-size-fits-all. ConnectCarolina and InfoPorte have a variety of reports that show funding information at each step in the payroll process. Each report gives a unique view of the information. With all of these different reports, how do you know which report to use and when? These slides accompany the recorded webinar and the quick reference card for understanding reports related to employee funding.

The ConnectCarolina HR team and the UNC Equal Opportunity and Compliance (EOC) Office are making it easier for employees with disabilities to request the accommodations they need to do their jobs. What used to require three paper forms for 1) self-identifying as a person with a disability, 2) requesting an accommodation and, 3) completing a HealthCare Provider Release form, all are now available online in ConnectCarolina. It’s been a multi-phased process improvement effort that started in April 2017, when, for the first time, employees could voluntarily identify as a person with a disability in ConnectCarolina instead of downloading, printing and mailing a form to the EOC Office. Beginning March 1, ConnectCarolina will also become the place to request an accommodation for a disability and the Healthcare Provider Release is now part of the accommodation request. Faster Turnaround for Accommodation Requests If you’re someone who needs an accommodation to do your job, having easier and faster processes to obtain it can mean a lot. The following are a few examples of workplace accommodations that have assisted UNC employees: purchasing or modifying equipment or products, making a workstation accessible, modifying a schedule, allowing leave, modifying methods and providing a service.

Email Communication Send Date: 2/8/21 From: Walter Miller, Director of Payroll Services To: PAAT Basic and Advanced Users, ePar Complex Originators, Finance Campus Unit Leads, Business Managers Subject: Retroactive Payroll Distribution Program We are excited to announce a new retroactive payroll distribution program launching for payrolls beginning with the B16 payroll (pay day February 12, 2021). This program distributes retro pay, primarily retroactive salary changes, to the latest funding sources on record for that previous cycle and is intended to reduce the number of PAATs campus users need to submit. Please find more details below. This info will be posted to CCINFO in the coming weeks. If you have questions, please contact the Business Systems Help Desk at 962-HELP. Retroactive Pay Distribution Process Currently when an employee receives retroactive pay in a payroll, the pay is distributed to the employee’s current funding sources. Due to this functionality department users need to submit PAAT actions after payroll distribution is complete to move the retro pay to the correct funding sources that were in place during the retroactive work period. We are implementing a custom program to be used during payroll distribution that will identify most retroactive payments and distribute the pay … Read more
As part of the ConnectCarolina upgrade that is scheduled for the weekend of October 28-30, 2016, the project team will be rebuilding the RPT environment starting at noon on Monday, October 24 through 8am on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. The RPT environment will not be available from 5:00pm on Friday, October 28 through 8:00am on Tuesday, November 1, 2016. Any queries created or saved during that period won’t be available in the upgraded RPT environment when it is live on Tuesday, November 1. All queries created and saved before noon on Monday, October 24 will be available for use during the week before the upgrade and will be moved to the upgraded RPT environment. If you need to create or modify queries during the period October 24-28, you will be able to do so, but you will need to recreate those queries or changes in the upgraded environment. We recommend that you take a screenshot of your query or save it outside the system to make it easier to recreate. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. This work will minimize disruption after the upgrade is complete. Thank you for your understanding.
The Ad-Hoc Queries (RPT) link for HR/Payroll in ConnectCarolina will be unavailable this Saturday, April 8, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm so that we can make some improvements to how you access the reporting environment. The Changes You’ll Notice After 8:00 pm on Saturday, you’ll need fewer clicks to get to the queries in the reporting (also called the “RPT”) environment. Instead of the RPT Ad-Hoc Queries link under the HR/Payroll option on the ConnectCarolina home page, you’ll see a link called Ad-Hoc Query Viewer (RPT) and it will take you straight to the Query Viewer page. Similarly, if you also have access to Query Manager, you’ll see a new Ad-Hoc Query Manager (RPT) link which takes you straight to the Query Manager page. Clicking the link will no longer open the reporting environment in a new window or tab, and you’ll no longer see the Oracle logo—you’ll see the query option along with the other options you have in ConnectCarolina. After 8:00 pm on Saturday, you’ll also be able to access the query options from the Main Menu (the blue bar near the top of the screen). So the two ways you’ll be able to access the query … Read more
