Cal Answers Financials and BAIRS Community,
We’ve now completed all the releases necessary to transition from BAIRS to Cal Answers. BAIRS will remain available through December 21. On December 22, 2018 we will close down BAIRS and the system will no longer be accessible. These last few weeks are your final opportunity to use Cal Answers while BAIRS is still available, so please take the opportunity to transition to Cal Answers now.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve implemented new updates to the Cal Answers Financials dashboards, based on user feedback. These are the final updates before BAIRS retirement in December.
Created ability to use the Fund Code, Dept ID and Account Code "between" prompts by themselves in the Financial Management Reporting and General Ledger Reporting dashboards to retrieve data, along with journal ID and employee ID. Review the wiki pages (linked above) for more information.
Set the default value in Payroll to be the last closed month.
Added new includable columns in the Workforce Detail dashboard.
Join us at Cal Assessment Network (CAN) on December 7
Save the date and join us on Friday, December 7 from 10:30am-12pm to celebrate BAIRS retirement and CAN’s 100th session. We’ll be presenting an overview of the Cal Answers Financials dashboards, helpful resources for dashboards and ad hoc, and outlining what to expect in the new year after BAIRS is retired. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and celebrate this huge milestone in improving the campus reporting environment.
Learn more about Finance access and which dashboards are included by visiting the access page on the Cal Answers website.
