Report Tips

Did you know you can share reports and get other user’s reports within your District and other Sonoma County Districts? If reports are marked as “Public” when creating Report Favorites, then the list of reports can be found in Report Favorites in both Finance and HR/Payroll activities. You can change the Module Id within either activity if you have permissions to both activities. The data is not shared, only the report criteria. This is a great way to share reports that SCOE Fiscal Management Advisors have created.

Go to Finance – Reports – Fiscal – Fiscal02
