Training Session Available Today for Processing Travel

Join Travel Office staff for a travel training session at 9 a.m. today, Thursday, May 13. They will be discussing setting filters for your inbox and appropriate travel card usage, as well as demonstrating scenarios for spend authorizations, individual and group travel expense reports, and appropriate expense item usage. Registration is available on the EDP calendar and the Zoom link is in the event description.

If you are unable to attend this session, we have several office hours, overview of using the Concur Booking Tool and another formal training session available throughout the month of May. Office hours are not a formal training session, but if you have a question, you can pop into the session to ask your question and receive guidance. It is just another opportunity to receive assistance, and who knows, someone else may be asking a question while you are there that is going to help you as well! It is just another great way to connect. For the office hours, the Zoom link will be included on the EDP calendar

For the official training sessions, you must register, and a link will be sent to you the evening prior to the session. The May training sessions will cover different topics. Please see the event description for more information.

In addition to the sessions offered by the Travel Office staff, a representative from Anthony Travel will be available May 19 and 20 to conduct an overview of using the Concur Booking Tool. Remember, if you are utilizing an Administrative Travel Card or Traveler Card to pay for airline purchases, you must book through Anthony Travel either using the Concur Booking Tool or contacting an agent, unless you have received an exemption by the Travel Office. Registration for those sessions is available on the EDP Calendar.
