Empty To field

Solution: Type FLCMP in both the Business Unit and To field.

Problem: The email from CFS with the requisition PDF has been sent to your Junk or Spam folder in Outlook.

Solution: Check your Junk or Spam folder in Outlook for the message. Then mark the email as Not Junk and/or add it to your safe senders list.

There was a PDF in the File List!

Great! However, it's possible that there is an issue with CFS so please report the issue.

If you have NEVER successfully received a purchase order or purchase requisition PDF via email before, contact CMS Security at cmssecurity@fullerton.edu. It's possible there is an issue with your email address in CFS. Please let them know you successfully ran the process on the web, but the email didn't work.

If you have successfully received a purchase order or purchase requisition PDF via email before, contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@fullerton.edu or 657-278-7777. It's possible there is an issue with CFS sending emails and the Help Desk can notify the appropriate team to follow up with the Chancellor's Office.

There is no PDF in the File List!

This means there is very likely an issue with CFS itself. Contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@fullerton.edu or 657-278-7777 and they can notify the appropriate team to follow up with the Chancellor's Office.
