Hot Topics
Do you have new employees in your department and often wonder what type of access they need and to what system? Do they need to view information or modify it? Do they need to know it in real time or near time? UAccess Analytics or UAccess Student? All these questions are brought up and answered in this discussion

Do you need to see the number of hours an employee reported for a week in a position? The Analytics team has created a new report for just that!
 
Telecom statements will now be available in UAccess Analytics instead of FSO's Service site. View more information here.

Tips & Tricks
This month's tip is more of an informational tip from our new star member, Suzy Brown. She informed us of the El Sol Travel Agency system that she demoed for her department. The El Sol Travel Agency is designed to increase services to UA travelers, travel arrangers, and meeting planners while providing significant savings to the UA. Check out the thread here and feel free to give your feedback!

Add your tips and tricks to any discussion group or on the Tips & Tricks threads and they might be featured in next month's newsletter!

The popular Rob Roberts earns his gold presenter star today. As many of you who follow the community already know, Ron uses the community often and is always getting into trouble. Oops, that's not entirely true! In all seriousness, Ron asks many questions that have great follow up and stir discussion. This is exactly what the community is for! Thank you, Ron. Keep it up and stay out of trouble.
