Put totals on your reports.
If there were TOTALS for FTE, Salary and Benefits, then I could check it against my source data and know instantly if I had a mistake in my entries before I lock and submit.
Totals have been added to the FTE Summary Report. Totals cannot be added to the Salary Report because when persons have multiple assignments their Contract info including Salary and Fringe are repeated for each assignment therefore making totals for that report wouldn’t make sense. However, we now have a dashboard widget for Contracts and are going to be adding totals in drill in report there since this will only have 1 contract per person for Contract fields of Salary, Fringe, and FTE. Figured out best place to put a grand total of Salary is the Staff List as it lists every person’s contract once. Created US story to do so in near future.
Figured out only other logic place to add is the Staff List report since its one row per Contract. Created story to do soon.
