Routing & Approvals Change
A new functionality, En Route Box, has been added to the routing history in CANOPY and FAMIS that allows you to view ‘what is potentially coming to your In-box’.
On FAMIS Screen 914 there is a section that displays "Document Path (Pending)" with this ‘pending route’ information.
In CANOPY, a new Routing & Approvals tab labeled "EN ROUTE" is available. The En Route Box displays documents that are currently on a routing path that will include a desk on which you are a primary approver or signer. You also have the ability to determine who currently has the document and how long it has been routing. FAMIS Screen 916 provides the same functionality as the new Tab in CANOPY.
Routing In-Box Purged - FAMIS has added a new program (FBYU720 - For Your Notification) to purge copies of routing documents from users’ In-Boxes.
This program has been set up to run for ALL TAMUS MEMBERS on the night of the 15th of each month. All FYI documents older than 12 months will be deleted from the In-Box on a rolling 12-month schedule, with the older items being purged automatically.
FAMIS Help & FAMIS Production Services
FAMIS Help staff members handle questions about FAMIS and Canopy as well as assist with problem research. E-Mail sent to FAMISHELP is viewed by a group of our employees and the person on call will help answer your questions. If you are working with someone on a continuing problem, you should send e-mail to famishelp and address that person in the body of the note.
FAMIS Production staff members run reports and help with accessing and reprinting reports. They also assist users with MOBIUS/DDRINT and help with many other functions related to report processing.
If you send email to a staff member directly for either FAMIS Help or FAMIS Production, they may be out of the office and your request will go unread until they return. Using the appropriate email address or our contact forms allows our staff members to respond to your needs quickly and efficiently.
FAMIS Report Names
FAMIS report names begin with "Fnn" with the "nn" being replaced with the campus code (such as F02 for Texas A&M, F05 for Prairie View, etc.). The report names are generally based on the FAMIS program name. For example, if the report name ends with "J" it is the JCL that was used to run the report. Report names for monthly reports may be based on either the JOB name (for example F01PMEND) or the FAMIS program name (for example F01VB220).
The following Production Services guidelines for setting up report names generally follow these patterns:
