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.
