Known Issues

Issue Title



Additional money added to cost in Travel

When adding a training cost to a travel item, the cost shows additional dollars equal to the number of hours for the training time.

This is a visual error and is not reflected in the data. The amount will be correct in the reimbursement claim.

Capacity Overload

When overloaded, the system displays the message “Capacity Overload: Your premium capacity is overloaded, expect temporary delays” This may happen when loading or viewing a report.

Wait 15-20 seconds until the issue resolves.

Failed upload for documents

At times, a message that an upload failed because of a refused connection displays when attempting to upload a document.

Select Save again to submit the file.
