In the Works

m-Fin is moving to Cognos 11 April 24th.
We have been preparing to upgrade m-Fin from Cognos 10 to Cognos 11.
Occasionally m-Fin FINANCIAL DETAIL takes 3 or 4 minutes when it should take only 15 seconds.
For projects, we are changing all m-Fin reports to get the PI from the PeopleSoft Finance 9.2 project team assignments.
This is a general explanation of what to expect from m-Fin for October 2015. With CU’s Elevate project, some structural changes are coming to CU’s financial accounting data.
This is not something requiring action from users right now. I just want you to be aware that it is happening. CU is preparing to upgrade to Cognos 10.2.1 the weekend of July 25, 2014.
m-Fin provides five reports that have the classic revenue and expenditure summarization to individual account codes: (1) m-Fin OPERATING SUMMARY (2) m-Fin REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE SUMMARY (3) m-Fin REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE TOTAL (3) m-Fin TRIAL BALANCE SUMMARY...
Here is what's coming down the pike: AWARD CODE prompt for m-Fin PAYMENTS RECEIVED, m-Fin FISCAL ROLES. This will be a new report that is like the old Fiscal Role Look Up but runs faster and is well suited to MSExcel output...
If all goes as planned CU will be running Cognos 10.2 in production Monday November 19, 2012. This is an incremental "dot version" upgrade from Cognos 10.1 to Cognos 10.2. You will notice some differences but they are minor and are not the kind of change that requires training. We expect that you will be able to continue using m-Fin reports the same way as you do now.
We are continuing our work toward decommissioning FishNet this fall. This includes the financial reports branded with the more innocuous University Reporting logo instead of the FishNet fish. The first University Reporting FishNet report to be retired will be Summary of Financial Transactions. Like all FishNet reports it runs at a address. Its header looks like this:
