Cal Answers HR Community,
We're pleased to announce we've updated the Cal Answers HR Workforce Detail dashboard to include reports on job funding data.
Release timeline for dashboards affected by UCPath
We're working to re-release the affected Cal Answers reports with data from UCPath and have posted the working draft of our timeline on the Cal Answers website.
Job funding data in updated HR Workforce Detail dashboard
As we mentioned in our last update, we've been working with the UCPath team to add two new reports related to job funding information to the HR Workforce Detail dashboard. These are "Job Funding Information As of Date" and "Job Funding Information by Date Range". They display job-level data, distribution-level data, and additional pay for employees. These reports are useful in managing which chartstrings employees are about to be paid out of, so that you can update the chartstrings to minimize payroll going into suspense and the need to do direct retros.
The remaining reports within the HR Legacy Workforce Detail dashboard - Termination and Org Change Data - will be updated and included in this dashboard in a future release.
- HR Workforce Detail Wiki: The wiki for Workforce Detail has been updated with definitions of the terms used in the new dashboard and an overview of the new reporting tabs.
- HR Workforce Detail Job Aid: The job aids for the new dashboards are available on the HR Reporting page.
- Webinar Training: The Cal Answers team is offering two webinars on August 8 and 15 that will provide an overview of the Workforce Detail dashboard to date. Please visit the training page to learn more and sign up. We'll also post a recorded webinar to the Cal Answers website afterward.
Access to the new dashboards
If you have access to the Legacy Workforce Detail dashboard, you have access to the new dashboard and do not need to take any action. If you did not previously have access and would like to request it, please follow the instructions in the"Campus Workforce Planning (HR) Dashboards and Ad Hoc Access" section on the Access page.
