Cognos Reporting System News

Let’s catch up with our Reporting Systems staff – Carl Sorenson and Rosen Georgiev – and review recent developments in Cognos:

Gone Fishin’: New FishNet Replacements

The old FishNet query tool will be decommissioned later this fall so FishNet’s financial queries are now being reviewed for conversion to Cognos m-Fin reports. If you’ve needed the data provided by FishNet’s Pay Detail by Dept ID or Employee ID, please check out these m-Fin replacements (now available in the test environment, Cognos QA) and let Carl know what you think:
  • m-Fin PAYROLL TRANSACTIONS
  • m-Fin COMPENSATION SUMMARY

New Format for Reporting Instructions

There’s a new style of report documentation in town. Take a moment to check out the sample format drafted for m-Fin SPEEDTYPE SUMMARY. Let us know what you think: Is it OK to replace the old step-by-step style of documentation with this new style? Your comments are welcome to Carl’s blog post or to Lisa.Vallad@cu.edu.

New Incompatible Access Report for Journals

Your campus finance office can now run the new m-Fin JOURNAL ENTRY APPROVER INCOMPATIBLE ACCESS. This report identifies Journal Entries (JEs) that were created and approved by a single individual. So it’s like the old Cognos Journal Entry Incompatible Access report...only better.
