How can I use this report?
The report allows detailed viewing of all PCard transactions, including the current transaction status, cost, reason for purchase and the length of time taken to acquit. This report supports the PCard Utilisation Report which is also available.
What should I look for?
This report allows users to view individual details based on PCard utilisation for the network or school. Identify and limit unfinalised transactions to reduce budget/spending implications. Act on unfinalised transactions or make changes to transactions unfinalised that have not yet been posted to a general ledger account. The report also helps to investigate rejected PCard transactions and understand patterns in spending based on employees or suppliers.
Using the report
Select results with slicers
The slicers allow selections to be made in order for the desired information to be displayed in the chart and tables.
Selecting a school is necessary for the report to generate meaningful results. Select the school, year, and cardholder.
These slicers are important for the transaction detail section of the report. Data can be refined by Acquittal range, Merchant name, Cost center, GL account, WBS, or internal order.
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 year will display results for all the years.
The top right section of the report provides a quick snapshot of total unfinalised transactions, average days to submit, and the average number of days to review submitted transactions for selected school and year.
