We are in the process of implementing the guest module of Concur. If a new hire or candidate is not yet employed (not active in Core-CT or start date in the future) they would be considered a guest for the purpose of Concur (only employees are profiled in Concur). Other Guest Travelers are student recruits, guest speakers, guest researchers, etc.
While we continue to plan out the official process and procedures for guests in Concur (Mid to Late Spring 2021), here is what the temporary process will be.
- UConn Departmental Sponsor: UConn employee who is sponsoring the guest travel and has a Travel Card.
- Pre-Approval required for Travel: Pre-approval for guest travel could come in many forms by way of written approval from Provost, Deans, EVP/CFO, Human Resources, Athletics, Graduate School. Pre-approval can also be accomplished using Concur Request under the UConn Departmental Sponsor (UConn employee)
We are excited to announce refresher trainings sessions are now available monthly for Concur Request, Travel booking, Expense and Approvals.
The University is still under a travel suspension at this time, however, we are offering these sessions in preparation for when the travel suspension is lifted in the future. (more…)

In an effort to provide ongoing support to our Faculty, Staff and Students we have scheduled monthly Concur training sessions. We encourage you to take the opportunity to get a refresher or learn more about the system.
Based on your feedback we have additional sessions now available for CBS Approver training.
Click the links below to register for one or more training sessions based on your preference.
We have three types of trainings scheduled each month (each session is 1 hour long):
Company Billed Statements (CBS) APPROVER Information Session and Demo – This session is recommended for Fiscal Officers, PI’s and other Special approvers of Company Billed Statement (Pro-Card) Reports and will go over how to approve Company Billed Statement Reports in Concur.
Company Billed Statements (CBS) Information Session and Demo – This session is recommended for UConn Pro-Card holders and their Preparer delegates and will go over the Pro-Card reconciliation process in Concur.
Personal Car Mileage and Non-Travel Expense reports – This session is recommended for UConn Faculty, Staff and students seeking reimbursement for UConn Business related expenses such as Personal Car mileage, Non-Travel expenses (such as virtual Conference registration fees) and out of pocket reimbursements in Concur.
As always, training documentation, videos, recordings of previous live training sessions, FAQs and other resources are available at https://travel.uconn.edu/training-and-resources/. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback please contact the UConn Travel Team at email@example.com
As a part of our organization’s effort to continue to improve user experience and security, and in alignment with SAP Concur solutions, there are some recent changes to the sign-in experience for the SAP Concur mobile app. You might use the app to submit expenses, capture receipts, book travel, and perform other tasks at home or on the go.
The next time you update the SAP Concur mobile app you will see:
- An improved sign-in experience, guiding you through your options in two steps
- No more option to sign in using your mobile PIN, if you have set one up
- Biometric sign-in options (like fingerprint or face recognition) for Android devices as well as iOS devices, where supported.
As of Monday, October 26, 2020, Pro-card transactions will be reconciled in Concur as Company Billed Statement Reports.
Starting with the November 2020 statement (October 24th through November 23rd), Pro-Card transactions will be fed directly into Concur, building a Company Billed Statement report instead of creating a procurement card document (PCDO) in KFS.
The new workflow in Concur will be as follows:
- Pro-Card transactions will feed into Concur on a daily basis, on a Company Billed Statement Report.
- Pro-Card holder, or Preparer delegate, will be responsible for reconciling these transactions on the Company Billed Statement Report in Concur (i.e., assigning KFS account number, attaching receipts, etc.). This reconciliation can occur at any time during the statement period, but must be completed by the 15th of the month following the statement period.
