To allow university faculty and staff access to the financial data they need to keep their departments, divisions, schools, and the university running smoothly. 

Access to UDW+ Financial Reports

Access to financial reports is actually a two-prong process.

  1. To access the UDW+ Financial Reports system, users must complete FIN 800 (in iLearn). 
    1. Completing FIN 800 will grant users the ability to log into UDW+ and navigate to the Financial Reports/Dashboards within 3 business days of completing the training. However, without permissions to see the data (see step 2), all of the prompts will be blank and you will be unable to actually run any reports. 
  2. To access the actual financial data, users must submit a Chartfield Access Authorization Request (also accessible via NYU Home)
    1. Financial data access is strictly limited to your own chartfields (the specific combinations of Fund - Org - Program - Project - Accounts that you manage or are related to your role at NYU). To ensure security, each user must submit a request to their Fiscal Officer (via the Chartfield Access Authorization Request form) to see data relating to their chartfields. If you need assistance with this form, is available to help. 

Types of questions these reports can answer

There are many financial reports and dashboards available in UDW+ and can answer questions ranging from purchasing to payroll, with grains at the summary and/or detail level. A few examples include:
