A Reminder of New M-Reports Feature
Toggle to Show Cents

With thanks to the Research Administration Advisory Council (RAAC) Process Subcommittee and Information Technology Services (ITS), ITS released a new feature in M-Reports on August 29. 

A new toggle in M-Reports allows users to choose whether to display cents in reports. This is beneficial to those who need more precise data, and also allows the macro-view for those who need or prefer information at that level.

That functionality is live and available on:

  • Summary of Projects
  • P/G Budget Status/Activity
  • Sponsored Parent Summary (& Consolidated PBSR)
  • Award ID Summary
  • P/G Billing Details
  • P/G Fin Aid/Stu Fin
  • P/G Payroll Details
  • P/G Voucher Details
  • Award ID Summary

How can I use this feature?

Once you choose your report, select the SHOW CENTS checkbox in the MY CRITERIA area of the report, then select the REFRESH (or SEARCH) button to redisplay the values as cents.  If you drill into the linked details, cents will also be displayed. Unchecking the SHOW CENTS checkbox, then selecting the REFRESH (or SEARCH) button, will redisplay values in whole dollars once more.

Please note: toggling between displaying cents or whole dollars can only be performed at the original report level. For example, if you navigate to the P/G Budget Status/Activity and select the SHOW CENTS option and refresh, then select one of the links to an amount in the EXPENDED column, the Rev/Exp Jrnl by FY report values are displayed in cents also. Unchecking the SHOW CENTS on the Rev/Exp Jrnl by FY page will return you to the original P/G Budget Status/Activity, with the values now displayed in whole dollars.  Drilling into the linked details will now be displayed in whole dollars as well.
