We have made some improvements to iBudgets and iJournals! Please see the list below for details:

Effective Date

These changes are effective Immediately.

Updates to iBudgets:

  • The ability to WITHDRAW an iBudget is now available. After submitting an iBudget, the originator may search for their iBudget and WITHDRAW before it is fully approved. Once Withdrawn and updated, the iBudget will need to be resubmitted for approvals.
  • A new code for Operating Budget to Operating Budget transfers has been implemented that creates the 49110-49210 object transfer codes automatically for transfers generated from Reallocation Budget process.
  • Update to Approver inquiry allows only people that may properly participate in workflow to be chosen as Approvers.
  • For Award LOV (list of value) searches, the system now takes Task into consideration.
  • Period is also now displayed in search results.
  • Performance improvement to searches – results are faster!
  • For GL lines, an update has been made to correctly match Projects and Awards from GA so new combinations will not be created in the GL.
  • Corrected the link to the UBO website on the iBudgets page.

Updates to iJournals:

  • The ability to WITHDRAW an iJournal is now available. After submitting an iJournal, the originator may search for their iJournal and WITHDRAW before it is fully approved. Once Withdrawn and updated, the iJournal will need to be resubmitted for approvals.
