    May 12, 2020

    It is important to keep the flow of fiscal documents moving forward, and one area we can improve on is to have at least one Travel Arranger in each office that CAN get in to the system to check on payments, to add missing documentation, etc. - not intending for them to become the travel initiator/uploader but for emergency fiscal needs. Please consider taking the training in Buckeye Learn and completing this Financial Systems Access Request.

  10. Login Using “SMS” Instead of “PUSH” in Cisco for eReports

    May 12, 2020

    Those on OSU networks do not need to use Cisco VPN to connect in order to get eReports. For those who DO have to use Cisco and have found that they still cannot log in as usual, please try typing in sms  in the box instead of ‘push’, the system will TEXT you codes to type in as you will log in a second time. Please see this job aid to help you get in for eReports: Connecting to Cisco/VPN to Access eReports.
