Please read this update on null values and how it affects running your reports.

USEFUL TIPS for FAST financial reporting #1 - Emailing pinned reports
If you have pinned reports you want to share, you can e-mail them to other employees within your institution. The reports are sent as links within the e-mail message. Because the employee you are sending the e-mail to will be prompted to sign in, they must already have access to the FAST application and the menu option for the report. If they do not have access to the FAST application, they will not be able to view the report.

Running Financial Reports for the New Fiscal Year
During the second week of May 2014, the University will perform its fiscal 2014 year-end close process for the period May 1, 2013-April 30, 2014. Until this occurs, FAST reports will show May 2014 expense and revenue transactions only.

March 26, 2014 Queen’s University transitioned from the Data Summary Signature System (DSS), an electronic pre-award tool, to a pre and post awards management module integrated with human ethics and biohazard certifications. Researchers can now access the TRAQ Researcher Portal directly from www.queensu.ca by selecting MyQueensU/SOLUS from the login drop-down list and scrolling to the bottom right corner of their portal.
