Demo new export (invoices & fund information) functionality

  •  Demos in snapshot test environment
  • Functionality on track for Morning Glory (Think release is scheduled for August 8th) : 
  • Voucher export - Need permission to be able to see this option. 
  • Would like a few people to test this function. 
  • Can now export invoices to a csv file. 
    • Functionality is almost identical to how it works in the orders app. 
  • From Lisa Smith to Everyone 12:17 PM
    This looks good to me.  MSU can help test vouchers and exporting, if needed.
  • From Ann Crowley to Everyone 12:21 PM
    They just sent the message that Lotus has been released today
  • Julie: Is there an element that captures whether that voucher has been part of an export yet?
    • Dennis: Not at this time. I'll take that suggestion and see what's possible. 
    • Julie: Would like to be able to filter on that as well. 
  • Dennis: Please let me know if there is anything else you would want to see in the export.

Dennis: Finance export Demo

  • Starting with the ledger you want to export the information from. 
  • Two choices 
    • What FY
    • What, if any, expense class information do you want to include. 
  • From Julie Brannon (she/her) to Everyone 12:29 PM
    For the invoices export, we'd want the "Batch group" for included too (can't recall if it was on the export demo you just shared).
  • From Lloyd (Marmot Library Network) to Everyone 12:33 PM
    Is a budget another record type?
    • Dennis: Yes. Each fund has a budget for the FY.  My fund can exist in each fiscal year. 
  • From Julie Brannon (she/her) to Everyone 12:37 PM
    These exports are going to be very useful - excited to see this!
  • From Lloyd (Marmot Library Network) to Everyone 12:37 PM
    Is there a one to one relationship between a budget and a fund or do budgets have multiple funds?
    • Ann-Marie: Easiest way to think of it is a budget equals fund plus fiscal year. 
    • Funds have budgets for every fiscal year that you are intending to spend money from that fund. 
  • Dennis: Constraint:
    • When you are running the report, you can't leave the page or you will lose the information. 
  • Hope to have UAT details and start testing next week. 


UXPROD-3256 - Getting issue details... STATUS

  • Allow user to process invoices against previous fiscal years. 
  • Allow user to process invoices against previous fiscal years. 
  • Will review as a group when have a formal workflow
  • Need a sense from the group what the priority is. Please take a look at this and provide feedback. 
  • Dung-Lan: Once we passed roll over and need to create an invoice for the previous FY, how do you envision that working?
    • Dennis: From previous discussions, it needs to be a specific and separate action to pay against the different fiscal year. 
  • From Julie Brannon (she/her) to Everyone 01:00 PM
    This UXPROD received a decent amount of points during the Kiwi pointing exercise in May 2021 - it was part of the top 20, so I think we've been clear on communicating that this is important: https://folio-org.atlassian.net/wiki/display/COMMUNITY/Pointing+Results+for+Kiwi+Release
    I guess that pointing exercise was focused on orders rather than invoices? https://folio-org.atlassian.net/browse/UXPROD-2713
