December Finance and Supply Chain Report Updates and Changes

Spend Exceptions Dashboard Decommissioning:

The dashboard "Spend Report Exceptions" will be decommissioned on Friday, December 29. End users should utilize the new "Exceptions Dashboard" for viewing policy exceptions for requisitions, expense reports, and supplier invoice requests. A report group could also be scheduled for viewing exceptions. To run the report group, use the Schedule a Report task and enter "Exceptions Report Group" in the report name. The report group can be run in real time or scheduled for a later or reoccurring date. 

Prompt Enhancements to Business Process Approval Times - Summary Suite:

Several prompts have been added to all reports in the "Business Process Approval Times - Summary" suite. The Grant Hierarchies field has been added to allow searching for transactions specifc to the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and an Exclude Worktags field has been added to allow for exclusion of OSP transactions (by excluding FD520), as well as other worktag types. Additionally, a new Cost Center prompt as well a Cost Center Hierarchies prompt have been added to allow end users to search by any cost center and/or hierarchy level. Please note, for split-funded transactions, only one cost center and corresponding CCH are pulled from the transaction. The line distribution for the highest amount is the line from which the cost center and cost center hierarchy are drawn.

HR for Finance - Compensation Changes Enhancements:

New fields have been added to the output of the "HR for Finance - Compensation Changes" report (excludes changes from Hires, Add Job and Change Job). These fields include Current Base Pay Annualized and Proposed Base Pay Annualized. The enhancements are to show annual pay in a consistent manner for both exempt and non-exempt employees.
