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.
