nVision Web Reports:
A listing of nVision report requests by Business Unit can be found here.
The Web-based version of nVision is available only in the RPT database. Please take the time to read through the documentation as you will find the reports run fast and do not return the "OLE" error sometimes seen in the traditional nVision dashboard. There are differences in the mechanics of running these web based reports but there are also some new options, such as emailing a report from the web to another user. Web-based nVision does not support the run time prompts that are used in many LSU reports in the windows environment. A custom solution was developed that enables the use of prompts. This solution requires the creation of two new setup pages. Additionally, the queries that are used to generate the prompt data must be revised to fit with the new methodology. The layouts and report requests for these reports have also been replicated and modified to enable the reports to run on the web. The linked document displays the steps necessary to run a web-based nVision report with prompts. Additional documentation is available for development of the nVision reports that include prompts. The additional document includes query modification data as well as the new setup pages.
The Crystal reports were developed by the PS Support team to better utilize the accounting information available in PeopleSoft. New database tables have been developed to support this initiative and they are updated every night in the Financials Report Database. These reports were developed to better aid Project managers, Business managers and Department Heads by providing detail and summary data on reporting periods of their choosing.
