Slow report generation times have been resolved.  During peak reporting periods (9am - 11am during middle of month), some users were experiencing wait times of 5-10 minutes for Monthly Detail Reports, SPCC Recon Reports, etc. to post to their report manager.  The average report generation time should now be between 30 - 90 seconds.  Please call Accounting Technology at 8/4866 if you experience slow report generation times moving forward.

The PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade is complete. Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve reporting functionality issues in the new environment. Please refer to the PeopleSoft 9.2 Upgrade End-User Information for updates on these issues.

Accounting Technology has seen issues where the nVision Drilldown add-in for excel does not work on a Windows 7 computer that has Office 2016 installed.

We are recommending that users experiencing these issues put in a Desktop Services Request to have their computer re-imaged with Windows 10 / Office 2016 in order to regain drilldown functionality.

Alternatively, we have designed the public query JGL0029_NVISION_DETAIL that anyone with run-query access in the Finance System can use to get their drilldown data. This query merges drilldown data into one report (i.e. AP Voucher details will be included with Journal details for ATV activity, deposits, etc.)

Server Changes

All nVision Reports and Drilldowns need to be run on the PSNT server. 

All other system reports will need to be run on the PSUNX server (Monthly Detail, Monthly Exception, SPCC Recon, etc.)

Running a report on the wrong server will cause it to error and it will not be delivered to your Report Manager.

Once the correct server has been selected in a run control, it will default in as your server selection for future requests of that type of report.


Monthly Detail Reports

A fix was applied to this report on 1/24/18 that addresses issues where users were getting more data than requested, or a blank page returned as their report.  Users no longer need to clear their browser cache and restart the browser prior to running a Monthly Detail Report as a workaround to these issues.

Reports can no longer be run in ranges, and functionality is limited to one department per report request.  Please wait until your report has posted to the report manager before requesting additional reports to avoid getting your previous request duplicated.  Approximate time for a Monthly Detail Report to post to report manager is 30-90 seconds.

We are aware of formatting issues where your report may start with a blank first page, or you may encounter a random page break in the middle of your report.  No data is missing from your report and the blank space can be disregarded.  


Budget Overview Lookup

The Budget Overview Lookup functionality is not currently working for grant orgs (5xxxxx).  You can use this functionality without issues for any non-grant org.

MAIN MENU -> COMMITMENT CONTROL -> REVIEW BUDGET ACTIVITIES -> BUDGET OVERVIEW

The Budget Details Lookup provides very similar functionality and is working correctly for any org.  Until this issue is resolved, please use this lookup if you need to inquire on a grant budget.

MAIN MENU -> COMMITMENT CONTROL -> REVIEW BUDGET ACTIVITIES -> BUDGET DETAILS


Homepage Personalization

PeopleSoft 9.2 is not defaulted with a menu appearing in the middle of the screen, as the default navigation is to use the menu bar up top.

Default Navigation

Each user can configure their own personalization to show a menu in the middle of the screen, if desired.  In the top right corner of your screen, click on 'Content'

Personalize Content

From there you will want to click the checkbox next to 'Menu' to display the traditional menu you may be used to seeing.  Click 'Save' to apply your personalization.
