  UT Share  

The UT Share PeopleSoft applications for Human Resources and Finance are moving to a new hardware and network environment. Those applications will not be available starting at 5 p.m. Friday, April 7, through Monday, April 10.

Complete any critical tasks—cash advances, expense reports, requisitions, vouchers, etc...—or outstanding approvals as early as possible to ensure a minimal impact to your department.

Hyperion Budgeting will be available during this time.

A message will be sent when UT Share is relaunched with a new web address. Update browser bookmarks, favorites, and links. You also may be required to create an exception to your browser’s pop-up blocker.

The new environment has improvements for system performance, reliability, and disaster recovery.
