The Improved Navigation project was successfully completed and went into production on Monday, October 17, 2022.


The new Fluid interface redesigns the pages found in the system's PeopleSoft view, allowing you to navigate via tiles. The tiles contain pages that are logically grouped together by business processes. Fluid will only be visible to users with expanded access roles: 

  • Initiator
  • Approver
  • Inquiry 

Self-service pages will not be impacted (i.e., standard employees will not see a change). 

RESOURCE ALERT: Check out the New Navigation Overview video for a complete breakdown of the changes you can expect! Want to see them live? Head over to our custom simulation


Project Glossary 

Become an expert on all things Improved Navigation by familiarizing yourself with these critical terms:

Use to open a new browser window, add a page to your favorites, or access the UCPath Help Site.
Accessible via the UCPath Portal view. OnceFluid is implemented, only UCPath Portal pages can be saved as Bookmarks. 
Accessible via the PeopleSoft view. OnceFluid is implemented, PeopleSoft page Bookmarks will disappear. 

To ensure you don’t lose easy access to the pages you need, follow the directions in our Saving Bookmarks as Favorites video or Quick Reference Guide no later than October 14.
The modern, intuitive user interface (UI) being implemented in the UCPath system.
When you open a tile, on the left side of the screen is a collection of folders that relate to the task. UCPath pages are organized in the folders.
Use to search for the page(s) you need.
Use to return to the homepage.
The starting point for the new navigation method. UCLA users may see the Workforce Administration and/or General Ledger Administration homepages. There are additional homepages that are not applicable to UCLA location users.
The UCPath Center project dedicated to implementing the new Fluid interface.
Use to access your recently visited and favorited pages. The navigator allows you to use the classic navigation menus.
Navigation collections consist of folders and pages that are functionally similar or part of a functional process.
UCPath transactional screens (e.g., Workforce Job Summary, Self Service Transaction Links, Manage Accruals).
The view you see when you open 1) a non-Portal page or 2) a page in a new window — it does not have the colorful interface of the UCPath Portal.
Icons on the homepage that represent the navigation collections.Tiles are not homepage specific and can be found on multiple homepages.
The view you see when you log into the UCPath system — it’s easily identified by its colorful interface and the left-hand navigation that displays your name and EMPL ID.
