In our continued efforts to improve end users’ experience using FTS, the following enhancements have been made to the Travel Component:
New for Travel Authorization/Reimbursement!
- Requester will be copied in all email notifications generated to the Traveler.
- Reviewers/Approvers now have the ability to enter a comment to the Traveler regardless of the Action selected (Verify, Approved, Return, and Not Approved). See snapshot below. The Traveler will be able to see these comments in FTS. Additional enhancements to the comments feature are in the works.
Lastly, changes are coming soon regarding Travel Reimbursement fields open for modification after the Traveler has submitted a request. The CSU Travel Procedures and Regulations, Number G-001, state Traveler’s reimbursement submission “must be the final entry in the submission.” In order to comply with this rule, we will be limiting the fields a Reviewer/Approver can modify on the reimbursement request to Amount Approved and Funding Source/Chartfields only. Of course, we will update you when this change has been finalized in FTS.
