Applications Finance Password changes now required
We are now required to institute password changes on the NetIDs for Finance users every 180 days as we currently do for Human Resource administrative users. If you have HR administrative access, you are already changing your password; If you have access to Summit only, this requirement does not apply at this time. Passwords began to expire November 5th . If you responded to the email notifications or postcard notification and changed your password, you should be all set. Just as for HR, reminders will be sent two weeks prior to the password expiration in the future. More information at http://www.oit.umass.edu/accounts/change-password-hr-finance

Instructions on this printing workaround are here. Users of Buyways may enounter a blank screen, which can be reloaded by pressing the F5 key.
Desktop A&F Internet Explorer 9 Upgrade
All A&F desktop computers have now been upgraded to Internet Explorer 9. This was done for two reasons: 1) to provide a secure web-browsing experience; 2) to support websites that require a newer browser than IE 8. While this upgrade should be an improvement for most users, there are some small differences between IE8 and IE9. Here is an instructional video to help you get started with Internet Explorer 9. Some users are reporting intermittent problems with Peoplesoft or Buyways loading blank pages. If you get a blank page, you can reload it by pressing the F5 key.
