Transaction TypeDescription of ChangeImage
Approvers: worklists work differently than they did in the past (except on the Faculty Portal, which works the same as it has in the past). The Worklist tile shows the transactions waiting for your approval broken down into groups. When you click one of those transactions and go to the worklist, the worklist shows all items waiting for your approval, rather than showing the list filtered by the item you clicked.  Once you reach worklist, you can narrow down the list by using the Worklist Filters drop-down list at the top.
Finding the Main MenuMain Menu has been replaced by the Navigator, which you can find on the right side of your screen after you click the compass icon at the top.
Saving FavoritesYou can save favorites from any page you got to using the Navigator menu (which is in the top right corner under the compass).
Browser-based bookmarksIf you have bookmark to ConnectCarolina in your Web browser, be sure it points to https://connectcarolina.unc.edu.
Breadcrumbs (the menu path)Breadcrumbs (that is, the menu path that used to show near the top of the screen) are visible under the Compass icon in the top, right corner of the screen. Only pages you accessed using the Navigator menu show breadcrumbs.
Ad-hoc QueriesYou will see different names for Ad-hoc Queries in ConnectCarolina. Most often, they’ve been renamed as “Query Viewer RPT” and “Query Manager RPT” but you may still see instances where they’re called “Ad-hoc Queries.”
Teaching and Research Resources links have movedTeaching links are now under Student Admin WorkCenter. Research links are under the Finance WorkCenter and the Student Admin WorkCenter.
All Employees: My Benefits tile on the Self Service home page.See your current benefits with just a few clicks by going to the new My Benefits tile on the Self Service home page (change home pages by clicking the white triangle in the top, middle part of the screen).
Switching home pagesYou can switch home pages by using the white triangle at the top, center of any home page.

Updating the "Country" field If you make a change in the "Country" field, it takes a few seconds for the change to display. You need to leave the page and come back to see your change.
Finding your worklistThe Worklist is now a tile on the Admin WorkCenter home page.
New links on the HR workcenterThe HR WorkCenter has new links, including one for Castlebranch and for the Job Code Table.
Filtering your worklistIf you click the Worklist tile and filter for a type of transaction on the approval page, that filter stays in place when you go back into your Worklist. We recommend filtering your worklist from the ePAR home page Evaluation Tool, instead of the Worklist tile.
Student Admin workcenterMany employees who do HR work also do work in the Student Administration space. For example, the "Find Existing PID" option is part of the Student Administration component of ConnectCarolina. Because that option and others are part of Student Administration, many people who do mainly HR work also see the Student Admin Workcenter tile. You see only the links in the Student Admin workcenter that you had access to before (that is, you weren't given any additional access as part of the upgrade).

The Student Admin WorkCenter has been expanded.The Student Admin workcenter has been expanded with many more links than it used to have.  Using a workcenter is the fastest way to navigate the new ConnectCarolina, so give it a try. (FYI:  You only see the links for pages you have access to use).
