e-Reimbursement Training for SFS 9.2 Upgrade

e-Reimbursement Training for SFS 9.2 Upgrade

e-Reimbursement Requests, Travel Authorizations, and Cash Advances are entered using the Shared Financial System, SFS, which is the financial database for the University of Wisconsin System.

The upgrade will bring more efficient navigation and the look of ‘tiles’ similar to HR’s MyUW platform. Business Services will offer two types of training sessions through October. We are offering large group training sessions in the Student Union to teach you how to navigate the new system. We will walk through e-Reimbursement entry and approval, highlight travel policies, and provide answers to your questions. We will also be offering small group Q&A sessions in the Business Services office.
