  1. My Cost Centers and Object View Tabs
    Across the top, you will see an option to filter by cost centers or object views.
    • A Cost Center is identified by a number and a description
      • E.g., 001100 Operating - Enterprise Solutions
      • Drilling down into each cost center, you can view the following:
        • Expense code
        • Budget
        • Actuals
        • Encumbrances
        • Remaining balance
        • % received/spent
        • Overall financial health of each expense line
    • The Object view displays similar information
      • Rather than navigating by cost center, you navigate by expense
      • E.g., 51000 Supplies Budget will show all cost centers' supplies budget information all at once
  2. Filter by Fund, Function, or Object
    • Filters can be set by Fund, Function, and/or Object in any combination
    • Groups of numbers can be added to the filter all at once separated by a comma, or as a range of numbers separated by “-“
    • If you are unfamiliar with these account terms, check out Accounting's Components of an Account Number.
  3. Filter by Fiscal Year
    Budget to Actuals allows you to look back on previous years by selecting the fiscal year from the drop-down menu.
  4. Save Criteria
    If you have set a filter that you would like to use in the future, be sure to click the Save Criteria button. 

After choosing any filter option, be sure to click Apply Filter to return results.
