ROLA problems with Safari

August 19, 2015

There have been some troubles over the past few months where ROLA proposals are appearing to have their budgets removed when the PI goes to submit the proposal. It seems to be a MAC problem, and recently further narrowed down to a MAC/Safari problem.

PeopleSoft has primarily been designed as a windows product.

Researchers are advised to use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome when submitting ROLA proposals from a MAC for the near future.
