Some Cognos m-Fin reports now offer a new option: run by multiple projects or run by multiple orgs.
Previously, the only way to run by multiple values was through the SpeedType option. Now we are introducing support for multiple values entered directly into the prompts for Project, Program, Org, or Fund. Where this change has been made you will see the instruction FUND, ORG | ORGNODE, PROGRAM and PROJECT accept multiple values separated by a single space.
Do you work in the PeopleSoft Finance System (FIN)? If you do, then you have had 2 user IDs since last fall. Both have been valid for months. In the near future, however, your old ID will no longer be valid.
As you know the OUC has been charged with developing the Cognos Reporting System as the single reporting solution for the University of Colorado. In pursuit of this goal, we have already begun to decommission other, unsupported reporting tools. If you use various reporting systems, please note the following schedule for transitions:
Effective January 1, we’ve placed the new CU brand on a number of finance forms, including Cash Receipt, Fundraising Authorization, Gift Fund, and Gift in Kind Acceptance. (The IN and Journal Source Code forms will be revised shortly to enhance functionality in addition to presenting the new CU logo.) You’ll find the forms, as always, on the OUC’s Finance Forms webpage.
The new calendar year means a few changes to Administrative Policy Statements (APS) and Finance or PSC Procedural Statements (FPS/PPS) – all part of the January 1 semiannual update cycle.
APS Cash Control
Rescinded, since the content it presented was heavily procedural and largely redundant with the FPS of the same name. (The FPS Cash Control has been slightly revised to incorporate a couple points from the APS.)
