Editing Employee Organizational Data

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference for editing employee organizational data in the Travel and Expenses profile within ctcLink.

Audience: Finance and Business Office staff.

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

  • ZZ Expenses User Admin

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

Note:  The information that this QRG is referencing is HR record information. The only fields that should be updated here are the Default Chartfields. Typically, all other fields are updated through HR records. Note: Users cannot update their own Expenses Profile.

The GL Unit and Oper Unit are required (at the minimum) to be able to process Expenses. This must be done before your end users enter Expense Documents. If this is done after, any existing documents will need to be deleted and re-entered.

Editing Employee Organizational Data

Navigator: Travel and Expenses > Manage Employee Information > Update Employee Detail

Configuring User Defaults reduces the amount of data entry required to complete Travel Authorizations and Expense Reports.  These defaults may be configurable or may be controlled by others, depending on security privileges.  Keep in mind that default values can be changed; they are merely a convenience. 

  1. Enter the desired information into the Search by field.
  2. Select Search.
  3. Select the Organizational Data tab.
  4. Use the Organizational Data page to assign an employee to a general ledger business unit and a department for expense reimbursement.  The employee's business unit determines such things as accounts to charge, allowable mileage rates, and cash advance limits.
  5. The Expenses Processing Data section indicates whether the employee's organizational data is validated, verifying that the employee is eligible for expense processing.
  6. ctcLink verifies whether the employee's organizational data is valid and whether the employee is eligible for expense processing in the Valid for Expenses field.  If the employee ID is not valid for expenses (and should be) please submit a Service Desk ticket.  
  7. The HR Information section displays information about an employee's organizational affiliation.  This information comes over from human resources; however, you can manually change these fields.
  8. Select the Use Business Unit Default checkbox for Expenses to use the time reporting thresholds established for the employee's general ledger business unit.  
  9. The Supervisor Information section displays information about the employee's supervisor.  This information comes over from human resources; however, you can manually change this. The supervisor identified here may be one of the approvers for the employee's travel authorizations and expense reports as defined in the approval rules.  If there is a reporting manager in the employee's HR data but no supervisor, then the system displays the reporting manager's ID instead.
  10. In the Default ChartField Values section, enter the Operating Unit (required field) or more of the ChartField values for this employee profile. The system uses these values to populate the default accounting information of expense-related transactions for the employee.
  11. Some employees may have more than one profile if they work in multiple departments or jobs.  If an employee has multiple profiles, you must select ONE of the Active records as the Default Profile in order for the employee to be eligible to enter expense transactions.

Note: There should only be one Default Profile selected for each employee, otherwise your Pay Cycle will fail when paying out expenses. Use query QFS_EX_EMPL_DEFAULT_DUP to check if your employees have more than one profile set to Default.

Organizational Data page

      • Enter the desired information into the Specific Amount field.
    • Select None if the employee is not authorized for cash advances.
