September 1 Change in Browser Options for viewing WebNow Attachments

As of September 1, 2015, the Google Chrome browser will no longer support WebNow (also known as ImageNow), which is used by various campus applications to view "imaged" attachments such as invoices in BFS and BearBuy and supporting documentation in the Travel & Entertainment system. As a result, users will receive an error message, such as "Java (TM) needs your permission to run," or nothing will happen when they try to view WebNow attachments in Chrome.

Although you will no longer be able to view WebNow attachments in Chrome after September 1, the other major browsers will continue to support WebNow, including:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Firefox
  • Safari for Mac

Please open your applications in one of these browsers rather than Chrome when you will be viewing WebNow attachments after September 1. 

If you have any questions, please contact the BFS/BAIRS Help Desk at or call (510) 664-9000, then press Option 1 (for IT), then Option 2 (for Business Application Support, including BFS/BAIRS).
