Internet Explorer will be retired by Microsoft in most Windows versions on 15 June 2022.

If you are using Internet Explorer with a legacy version of Unit4 Financials (e.g., v12 (Coda) or earlier), you will need to switch to the Edge browser and make some configuration changes in order to retain full functionality.

Retirement of Internet Explorer 11

On the retirement date of 15 June 2022, the IE11 Desktop application will be disabled permanently. From that date onward, if a user tries to access it, they will be redirected to Microsoft Edge.

In order to use applications with legacy IE11 dependencies (including Unit4 Financials v12), you can access legacy browser support in Microsoft Edge by switching to Internet Explorer mode.

In a recent blog post, Microsoft recommended that organisations schedule their own internal retirement date in advance of switch-off: “The best way to prepare for IE disablement after June 15 is to proactively retire IE in your organizations before June 15”.

Unit4 Financials legacy versions: how to enable full functionality in Edge

Within Unit4 Financials v12, failure to enable the Internet Explorer mode within Edge will mean that the drop-down menus and multiple tab functionality will be initially disabled.

Also, if you select another menu item, the Input screen will be closed and the newly selected page displayed. It will not open in a new tab.

To enable Internet Explorer mode within Edge, go into the Edge – Settings – Default Browser screen and set “Allow sites to be reloaded in Internet Explorer mode” = Allow. You can also add the page URL for your system to this screen manually.

The next time you attempt to access your Unit4 Financials system, you can select from the settings menu “Reload in Internet Explorer mode”.

The Unit4 Financials login box will now show in the center of the screen.

On completion of the logon credentials, the system will now show drop-down menus, multiple tabs and other features.
