How can I use this report?

The Managing Temporary Engagements Report provides a summary of a school’s temporary engagements over the school year, including engagement dates, positions, and funding sources. It also shows the percentage of engagements input by the school compared to by EDConnect.

What should I look for?

  • Look at the ‘temporary engagement days left’ column to identify temporary engagements that will cease within 28 days.
  • The number of temporary engagements input by the school or by EDConnect. The objective is to have these activities done at the school level, in a timely manner.
  • The ‘employee group’ column of the staff listed in the table to identify if they are employed on a full-time or part-time basis.
  • The ‘funding source’ column for all temporary staff within their school shows funding for a particular temporary engagement. In order for the funding information from eFPT to be matched with the report data from SAP, the Position ID must be entered in eFPT correctly.

Note: Position IDs are eight digits and starts with the number 8.

Note: for all of the slicers, a blank selection will be treated in the same way as selecting all of the options for that slicer. For example, not selecting a position will display results for all positions in the school.


The indicator on the top-right displays current active engagements of the selected school or network. Engagements ending in < 28 days display the count of the total number of employees with an end date within 28 days (this information is correct as of the end of the previous business day). Indicators do change as they are dependent on what is selected from the available filters.
