FAMIS Screens Lists and Screen Cards

You can now print out a tri-fold layout list of all FAMIS screens, or use the links available to view a list of FAMIS screens by module online.  On our FAMIS home web page, click on FAMIS Manuals and the links for the screen cards and online lists are located in the lower right column.

Many users have found these screen cards a useful resource when they need to know where to go in FAMIS to find specific information about their accounts and transactions.


Check the FRS Updates web page to learn about programming changes made to FAMIS screens, programs and reports, as well as changes made to CANOPY and Concur.  Our programming staff members have been busy this year!

Vendor ID Numbers and Social Security Numbers

Please be careful when you send e-mail questions to FAMISHELP that include FAMIS screen shots displaying a vendor ID number or Social Security number.  If these are shown on the screen capture, block the number out or type XXXs over these numbers before sending the email message.  DO NOT SEND SSN NUMBERS IN AN EMAIL MESSAGE.

An easy way to send a screen capture from a FAMIS screen is to click on "File", select "Send Screen" and the screen capture will open in a blank e-mail message.  If data needs to be protected, you can then type over the vendor ID number or SSN before adding your question and sending the e-mail message.
