GENERAL MEETING MINUTES:
Peggy Bottorff shared the account code crosswalk tool being developed. The url is https://www.mis4.udel.edu/chartaccts/. Peggy asked that the group play around with this and provide feedback to her. One comment was sited and Peggy will be forward the issue that "what you need to know now" seems smaller than "what you need to know THEN", and this should be more clearly articulated to the user of the url.
The committee reviewed the Abstracts from the HEUG training module from the most recent HEUG conference. Peggy will highlight the ‘nuggets’ of wisdom, so it will be easier to retrieve down the road. Some of the items brought forth in these reviews include:
Tim Miller shared the 2 remaining EZ forms with us and explained how they relate to the General Ledger. We need to keep these and all EZ forms in mind when preparing for the Delta Guide.
We discussed the initial needs assessment tool which will be issued to Data Warehouse users. Peggy will make some of the suggested changes and re-send the updated version to the group. Chris Murphy will forward this to Evelyn Stevens who conducts the current DW training for User Services. There will be a cover memo to those surveyed noting that this is just to assess their DW needs so that we can work toward a smooth transition when implementing PS. No promises will be made with regard to retaining the warehouse/fields. Peggy will add the following sections to the survey:
Part 3: What other tables do you utilize?
Part 5: Comments
