Kuali Coeus


Current Release

February 2015: Release 6.0

Kuali Coeus 6.0 is the first of several releases designed to provide a new and intuitive User Experience (UX).  

Specific Features include:

  • Re-organized and intuitive data entry.
  • Left hand navigation and 'Save and Continue' options for linear navigation through the system. No more 'where do I go next'?
  • Quick access to tools: validation, print, copy, medusa, hierarchy management, and budget version management functions are always one-click away in a Proposal Development Document.
  • Search while you type for several frequently entered data fields.
  • Modal-based user interactions that provide context and continuity while performing lookups and entering large amounts of data.
  • Drag and drop capabilities for file attachments allow users to upload and manage multiple files at one time.
  • Detailed Budget Summary information is available from the Proposal, without opening a full budget.
  • Budget navigation improvements focus users on fast expense allocation instead of setup and maintenance.

Kuali Rice 2.5.2 will be available for download soon and is required for running KC 6.0.  Kuali Rice 2.5.2 includes numerous performance improvements, bug fixes, and enhancements to the KRAD framework.
