Concur is Getting a New Look! – Coming September 19th

The Office of Fiscal Services is excited to announce the upcoming migration of Concur to an improved user interface (UI) on September 19, 2022. The update requires no action on the part of Concur users and will have no impact on expense reports already in process. Users will see the updated UI when they login to the system after the conversion is complete on the 19th.  

The key focus of the new UI is to provide users with better, more efficient navigation through Concur Request and Expense. While users will experience visual changes throughout the system, basic functionality will remain unchanged. The improvements for Concur users include the following: 

  • Task-based windows – allows one task to take over the entire screen to provide better visibility and focus during each step of the process. 
  • Expense details and receipts – can be seen in the same side-by-side view making it easier to view expense details to enter manually or confirm the accuracy of entries.
  • Visual cues alert users throughout the process and let them know if required information is missing, totals do not match, or a task is incomplete.
  • Enhancements to functionality supporting allocation and itemization of expenses.

For any questions or training requests, please submit a ServiceNow ticket at service.kennesaw.edu/ofs.
