A new Aggregate tab default view is now available. The new view: summarizes effort certification events by earnings period in one view, displays rows by Grant and Award Types (sponsor, cost share, Non OSP, Department Funded), and eliminates extra data displayed in the Details tab (for example, less relevant worktags, separate rows for each pay component, etc.).
The implementation of the new Aggregate tab view coincides with the June 2023 - August 2023 certification period published in early September 2023. It is also available for prior certifications but reports already approved do not need to be recertified.

As of Friday, September 1 , the "Managerial Trial Balance" report behavior will change when viewing equity balances.
Prior to the change, equity balances would calculate "beginning balance – net margin" to derive an ending equity balance. After this change, the equity balance on the trial balance will always reflect the beginning balance numbers. Going forward, you must take your equity balance and subtract your net margin from it (sum of Revenue and Expenses) to obtain the derived equity balance as of the date you run the report.
