RPG Release: Start and End Quarters on Minor Codes Report

Based on user feedback, the Report Prioritization Group released updates to the BI Portal report, Minor Codes.

Change Summary:

Based on user requests, the Minor Codes report was simplified to reduce confusion. Now when you run the report for a department, it displays all Minors managed by the department, active and discontinued. We made the following updates:

  • Filter Update:

    • The “Include Only Active Codes” button was causing confusion because a minor can be “active” but have an end quarter that is in the future.
    • We removed the “Include Only Active Codes” radio button altogether to reduce confusion.

  • Column Updates:

    • In the report the “Current Status” column displayed “Active” or “Discontinued”. Again, this column was causing confusion because a minor can be “active” but have an end quarter that is in the future.
    • We removed the “Current Status” column and added two new columns:
      • Start Quarter:
        • Displays the first quarter the minor was active.
      • End Quarter:
        • Displays the last quarter the minor is active
        • If a minor does not have an end date, the column displays “No End Quarter”
