UZH Web Portal for Business Applications


The UZH Web Portal for Business Applications (in German “UZH-Webportal-Geschäftsapplikationen”) hosts a row of business processes that can be accessed at any point of time. It has one central design and search facility shared by all applications, which eases navigation between its various components.

Following applications are currently available on the UZH Web Portal for Business Applications:


  • Web Reports, e.g. plan/actual comparisons
  • Faktura light
  • Kreditorenworkflow (KWF)
  • Payment orders
  • Transfers

Human Resources

  • eHR
  • Employee-Self-Services (ESS)


Access to the Web Portal for Business Applications is open to everyone. However, users will only see the applications for which they have been granted access rights. For those, who do not have any, the Web Portal will be empty.

Layout / Navigation

Applications are represented on the Portal as individual apps, which are clustered into groups. Each app has a title, a subtitle and a picture as well as a counter (when appropriate, such as on the app “Pendenzen, Belegfreigabe”).

In the upper area of the Web Portal, in addition to the button for the start page, the activated groups are also visible at all times. These are used for navigation; clicking on the desired group takes you to the apps.

The applications opens with one click. To exit the application, click on the UZH-Sign or on the Arrow-Back “<” symbol. Both are located at the very top of the page.

Browser Settings

The UZH Web Portal for Business Applications is supported by all common web browsers. However, the browser and especially browser settings will influence the user’s experience on most of the applications.

Finance apps

Following browsers are adequate to run FI apps: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Safari. Cookies have to be activated and if your browser offers that possibility, we recommend opting for an automatic deletion of website data after use.

IMPORTANT: Language settings of your operating system (especially Mac OS) and/or web browser have to be set to German in order to guarantee the correct execution of commands within the various Finance apps. Display of attachments and running the Faktura Light app may otherwise be compromised.

HR apps

Web applications of the HR department are to be launched within Citrix with Firefox to ensure full operability.

User documentation

Consult the detailed user documentation (PDF, 2 MB) on the various browser settings (in german only).
