In support of the CFS Data Warehouse, the CMS Training Team has scheduled several FIN008 CSU Finance Data Warehouse training sessions. These sessions provide training on the new financial data warehouse, as well as lab time to set up report defaults and work with your own data. This training is required to gain access to the CFS Data Warehouse. If you currently run Cognos Financial reports, you need to take this training.
Dates: Tuesdays & Thursdays, Oct 4 – Nov 17
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Location: Clark Hall 505
Please note that pre-enrollment in these sessions is required. You must be enrolled at least 2 business days prior to the class session so we can create your access in the database. For instructions, see Search for a Course and Enroll in a Session (pdf).
If you already have access to CFS, you will not need to complete a System Access Request form (pdf). If you do not have access to CFS, bring a signed System Access Request form to your training session.
