SWIFT Update August 24, 2023 

2023 Fiscal Year End Update

A successful Fiscal Year 2023 hard close was implemented last weekend. This accomplishment is due to agency staff working hard to meet deadlines and resolve issues. Thanks to everyone for making the FY2023 close a great success!

Two New Opportunities for EPM Data Warehouse Users

Open Labs

Are you a savvy user of the standard SWIFT reports found in the EPM Data Warehouse? Want to further customize your reports to meet your unique business needs but are unsure how to approach it? Join the SWIFT training team for open labs intended to foster collaboration and problem solving. Beef up your reporting skills while helping others enhance theirs. The shared goal is to access the SWIFT information you require to solve real state data needs. 

Labs will run approximately 90 minutes and will cover 1 or 2 topics nominated by you. The more topics, the more labs! Email us at Send us your topic, including the parent report/subject area (sorry, SWIFT-related only), the desired outcome, and any issues you’ve encountered. 

New Lab Offered - SWIFT EPM Formatting Your Report

Join us for an informal lab to learn about formatting a saved report in the EPM Data Warehouse. This lab is for agency staff with EPM Data Warehouse and SWIFT permissions and roles. Work alongside the instructor as we explore various ways to format and customize the display of your reports. You will learn how to format headers and values, rearrange columns, add formulas, actions, views and other objects, and customize with color. Please have a saved report to access in My Folders.
