Update: Enhanced Features & Fixes for the PI Report

Sent to employees with PI Report roles in KSAMS

We're excited to bring you the latest updates for the Principal Investigator (PI) Report. As always, we're dedicated to enhancing user experience and addressing any issues you may come across. Here's a breakdown of the changes introduced in the PI Report 7/26/23 release:

  1. Enhanced Search: You can now search for a PI using just the "First Name" or “Last Name”. This is a departure from the previous requirement where both first and last names were needed, allowing for a more flexible search experience.
  2. Added Data Load Date: For those who troubleshoot using the Data Load section information, we've added a "Month End Run" timestamp on the home page for better clarity.
  3. Bug Fix for Months Left Output: We identified and resolved an inconsistency within the “Months Left” column in the Excel output pertaining to non-salary one-time expenses. The logic has now been refined to ensure the Excel values align consistently with the table displayed on the report page.
