eRA Information: Improved Visual Appearance for eRA Commons Modules Coming Soon, Starting With ESI Eligibility Screen
Over the next few months, several eRA Commons modules and screens will be moving to the improved visual appearance being adopted by other eRA modules. The new look is part of a required technology upgrade to enhance the security and stability of eRA Commons. New screens will be rolled out during the next few months into spring, starting with a refreshed ESI Eligibility screen, which is being released today, Wednesday, January 31, 2024.
Refreshed screens feature a new look, a new banner, new module navigation, enhanced table tools, and the use of three-dot ellipses menus in tables to access actions you can take on a record. Modules and screens to be updated include:
New ESI Eligibility Screen
The new ESI Eligibility screen, available for signing officials (SOs) only, features a new banner and new table tools.
Note that SOs access the ESI Eligibility screen via the Admin module or through an ESI Eligibility search in Status.
