Recent changes to TRAX

Requisitions -- The Budget Check Status has been added to the Requisition Approval page


- The Budget Check Status has been added to the Invoice Information tab under the Action drop down list.

- A flag was added beside the Comments link to indicate whether or not there were any comments. 

Note:  When you are adding a voucher, this flag will always be "N" unless you exit the voucher after making comments and get back into it.

Frequently Asked Questions

As you might imagine, we've had more than a few questions pop up since the first of the year. 

You can find the answers to these questions and more on the TRAXHELP website Frequently Asked Questions page.

What do I do if My Password Expires?

If you have not changed your password since we converted to the new system, your password has either already expired, or will expire in the next thirty to sixty days. 


Budget Checking a Voucher

We have received a number of calls about the voucher budget checking process.


Can I Find a Vendor Number without Opening a Requisition or Voucher?


Requisition Questions:

My Requisition is now "Completed" and I can't pull it up on the system.  How can I view my requisition information?


Do I have to use TRAX to send my approver an e-mail if I approve my own requisitions?


I see people listed in my Approver list that should not be able to access my requisitions.  What should I do?


I'm going through all the steps, but the e-mails aren't going out. Am I forgetting something?


The Approval e-mails go to my Approver's Junk E-mail folder in Outlook
