Adding Project Personnel to Object Codes
This Friday, May 11, we are pushing an enhancement to the KC Budget Module that will automatically add project personnel to budget object codes based on their Job Code. To successfully use this enhancement we recommend taking the following steps:
- Add all individuals that you’d like to include in the budget in the Project Personnel panel (MSU employees only). Add the Base Salary for any To Be Named persons. Click the Save button at the bottom of the tab.
- Once the Project Personnel panel is complete, click the add all to period 1 button. Once clicked, all personnel with recognized Job Codes will be added to mapped Object Codes in the Personnel Detail panel. Verify that the individuals were added to the object codes you had anticipated. If not, click the delete button next to the line item that is not in the preferred object code, and manually add the person to the correct object code. NOTE: Image only displays one object code panel open for ease in displaying the screenshot, however all object code panels have been populated with information from the Project Personnel panel. Individual’s names have been redacted.
- Enter the appropriate percentages in the % Effort and % charged fields for all persons.
