BUworks: Funds Management Reporting (Intro)
Funds Management Business Warehouse Reports (Basic)
Course type: Hands-on lab; participants will use their own data in the production environment
Course level: Introductory
Expected duration: 2 hours
Description: We will explore the basics of Business Warehouse reporting (sorting/grouping, filtering, saving a view, etc.) in the context of Funds Management (FM) reports. Reports examined will be drawn from the New FM Account Summary area. We will focus on the Unrestricted Budget to Actual by Funds Center report suite, which provides views of budget and actual (revenue and expense) data from the summary level to the line item detail level. The Designated/Restricted fund report suite will also be considered.
Target Audience: (1) employees who are reasonably new to the University or to their business role; (2) department administrators charged with monitoring budgets and actuals (revenues and expenses) who want to review FM reporting basics.
