Creating AR Speed Types

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for how to create an AR Speed Type or SpeedTypes in ctcLink.

Audience:  Finance/Billing.

A Speed Type is another word for a valid ChartString filled with valid Chartfield values. In the HCM pillar, there's Combo Codes that hold payroll data. In the CS pillar, there's Item Types that hold student-related tuition and fees. In Finance, there's Billing Charge Codes and AR Speed Types. All these different terms really say the same thing: the ChartString. These are the values are what hold the financial part of our pillars together. In Finance, setting up Billing Charge Codes and AR Speed Types can reduce errors and expedite processes by auto-filling pre-approved ChartStrings.

You must have at least one of these local college managed security roles:

  • ZD GL Local Config Inquiry

If you need assistance with the above security roles, please contact your local college supervisor or IT Admin to request role access.

Creating an AR Speed Type

  2. In the SetID field, look up or enter the Business Unit.
  3. In the SpeedType Key field enter a name for the new AR Speed Type.

Check with your local college business practices for a naming convention. Some colleges use their Business Unit as part of the AR Speed Type, i.e. 220-RS = WA220 Running Start. Others have opted to use specific Department number, i.e. 01007 = Running Start Department.

Optional to select a specific 'User ID' or 'Primary Permission List' which limits access to the AR Speed Type values. When these fields are left blank, it will populate the Type of Speed Type to 'Universal (All users)'.
