Why does Finance Central open multiple windows? Each Finance Central application opens in a new window so that you can have multiple applications open at one time (for example, Check Request in one window and Travel in another). Please be aware that Internet Explorer 7 supports multiple browser ƒ ¢ € ˜tabsƒ ¢ € ™ within the same window. Using the above example, that would have Check Request on one tab and Travel on another. Please contact your departmental support personnel for instructions on configuring this option within your browser. How long can I stay logged into Finance Central? Finance central login sessions “time out” (expire) after 30 minutes of inactivity.
