PI Portfolio projections updated to resolve CBR issues

February 20, 2020
Cal Answers PI Portfolio Community,
As part of the UCPath implementation, we made updates to PI Portfolio in our initial UCPath Cal Answers releases and then released updates to the HR Lookup and Personnel reports. In this release, we've made a set of updates to the projections functionality in PI Portfolio that will resolve the issues users have been having with generating CBR projections since UCPath went live. These updates will give PI Portfolio users the ability to review and accurately project CBR rates and expenses associated with individual appointments. The new rates will be available in the projection input form (Apex). In the projection input form, users can make changes to appointments as needed and the updated CBR amount will be projected accordingly. 
Release timeline for dashboards affected by UCPath
We're working to re-release the Cal Answers reports with data from UCPath and have posted the working draft of our timeline on the Cal Answers website.
