UShop Changes & Improvements

As part of our ongoing effort to improve UShop, there are several changes going into effect on April 6:

Left sidebar navigation icons have changed, as well as the header bar along the top of the screen, to improve useable workspace and provide more intuitive navigation.

A reorganized shopping dashboard, rearranging the existing content you already know in a way that places the most commonly used items in the top portion of the viewing space. If you prefer the previous shopping dashboard, you may switch back to it, or can toggle between them. If there is something you’d like to see on the dashboard, please let us know.

Ability to add Additional Approvers into requisition workflow in UShop, independent of GFA approval. This could be useful, for example if the specific items in your cart require review by a subject matter expert, or as a way to add another layer of approval to your order, improving internal controls. This feature may also be useful for individuals who submit requisitions into workflow but those individuals also have GFA and their orders auto-approve. This feature forces a stop at another person for review.

Please share this information with others in your department that may be interested.  Sign up via the Purchasing home page through the icon titled:  Procurement Training Opportunities or from the link below.

Close POs & Ad-Hoc Approver

1. Close POs directly in UShop

When it is time to close a UShop PO, you can make that change right on the PO!

Click Here for instructions

2. Add an individual as an Ad-Hoc approver to requisition workflow

This feature allows you to add an individual, in addition to GFA approval, to the requisition workflow. Once this individual is assigned as an Ad-Hoc approver, their approval is required. This can provide an increased level of internal controls to any order you choose.
