Cal Answers Financials Community,
We did it - say goodbye to BAIRS! Today is the last day that BAIRS will be available. Cal Answers reporting now includes finance, HR, payroll, and student data. Using Cal Answers means you can customize your dashboards as needed, drill from summary data to detail, and share reports using bookmark links. During the course of 2018, we partnered with our campus subject matter experts to release numerous new dashboards and we would like to extend a BIG thank you to everyone who helped develop the dashboards and provide feedback. Your input is very much appreciated.
Recreate saved customizations and bookmark links
As we announced earlier this month, we'll be upgrading Cal Answers in February 2019 and at that time the saved customizations will be preserved but bookmark links will need to be recreated.Additionally, because we've been releasing new dashboards and enhancements throughout the year, it's necessary to recreate your saved financials customizations and bookmarked links to ensure you're linking to the most current versions of the dashboards. Visit the Cal Answers websitefor instructions on how to print, export, and recreate your saved customizations and bookmark links.
Extended office hours January - February
We're extending our office hours into February, to help answer your questions about pulling data from Cal Answers without using BAIRS. Sign up for a 30 minute slot and bring your laptop and your questions. Please email us a link to the BAIRS report you're trying to recreate or a PDF of the report at firstname.lastname@example.org two days before your appointment.
