Using Treasury WorkCenter

Purpose:  The Treasury WorkCenter provides users with the ability to analyze, review, and manage cash, financial gateway, exceptions, and related data. It offers access to a variety of pages and information to perform daily tasks without navigating between different menus.

Audience:   Treasury/Cash Management staff.

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

  • ZZ Treasury Workcenter

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

The Treasury WorkCenter is a role-based central navigational component that is designed to help users of the Treasury/Cash Management application organize and streamline their workload. It provides a single place to perform a broad range of tasks without leaving the WorkCenter, such as journal functions with exception alerts, monthly closing activities, or reconciliation and reporting, resulting in improved efficiency, productivity, and effectiveness. The WorkCenter is a global configuration that can be tailored to individual requirements. It will be delivered with the most common tasks and links that are applicable to most users.

A WorkCenter is divided into a Task area and a Work area.  You click on a link to perform the Task in the Work area, without ever leaving the WorkCenter.  When you are finished with a Task, you can quickly select the next one, and open it in the Work area.  This functionality improves efficiency and effectiveness, and reduces the need to keep navigating through the menu structure to perform your job duties.

The WorkCenter is composed of the following pagelets.  Each pagelet is discussed in this Quick Reference Guide.

The pagelets are:

  • My Work pagelet - Access to your most commonly-performed tasks, including exceptions and alerts for items requiring your attention.
  • Links pagelet - Access your most commonly-used pages.  This pagelet is similar to the Favorites menu, but more user-friendly.
  • Queries pagelet - Access Query Manager, public queries, private queries, and pivot grids.
  • Reports and Processes pagelet - Access reports and processes that you use most often.
