Cognos Test Refresh

The Cognos Test database is more current now thanks to a refresh of the Banner Test database that occurred on December 13, 2017.

Finance Reports and Data Changes

The Budget Status Organization Drill-Through report has been updated with the following improvements.

  • Pie charts have been replaced by bar charts representing the top 5 expenditures and budgets (excluding general fund tuition and fees)
  • Transactions that are defined on the same fund, organization and program as an index defined with an activity code ending in “GEN” will be combined into a single row
  • Transactions for non-compensation related account type codes use the fully-interactive mode. Every column can be sorted and filtered
