Common Problems

Selecting a Project/Task

In a timesheet, Unanet has replaced the familiar project/task pull-down menus with a search box. Users can start typing the first letters of their charge code to see the available codes appear for selection. A % sign can be used as a wildcard to see all available codes. There is also an Add a row link at the bottom of the project task list to create new rows.

Trusted Sites

The Unanet application uses Java. The Government's workstations are configured to block Java applications from running on websites that are not in your Internet Options: Trusted Sites. Just add https://* to your Trusted Sites under Internet Options.

Logging in to the Unanet Application

If you are unable to log into the Unanet Application, verify that you are able to connect to your BCT email using Outlook Web App (OWA). The Unanet system uses the same Active Directory account as the email system, so if your username and password work for OWA, then they should be valid for Unanet.
