Systems Availability

Planning (meaning all the PennPlan applications and Reports) will generally be available from 7:00 am to Midnight.

When you save a forecast or budget in a data entry form in PennPlan, your changes will automatically go to PennHist when you save. However, if you run a business rule or load the data in some other way, it will only go to PennHist every two hours on the following schedule:

Daily at 10:00 am, 12 noon, 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm, 6:00 pm, 8:00 pm, 10:00 pm

You may get a message that you can’t save in PennPlan if you try to save your work during an export at the times listed above. Wait a few minutes and then you should be able to save.

PennPlan will be aggregated (meaning it will add up org parent and fund group totals)  in Revexp on the hour between 9:00 am and 11:00 pm,  and on the half hour between 9:30 am  and 11:30 pm.  You can save work in PennPlan while it is aggregating. Your updated totals will appear after the aggregation finishes in about 20 minutes.
