Choosing a Report

The descriptions below will help guide you through which report to use in the EBS Portal. Keep in mind that security drives which reports are available to you individually. So, if you don't have either a Unit Administrator or the Unit Time Administrator role, you will not have all reports.

Reports Available

ACA Time Report

The ACA Time Report calculates an average of hours paid, not worked, between the applicable measurement period and a key date (reporting period). The report is designed to display time data for an employee at the person-level, not for a single assignment. This means that if an employee has multiple assignments in various departments over the measurement period, the report will show a total average of paid hours across all of the assignments that existed during the reporting period.

Reporting Relationships is used to set up a supervisor for a position which gives the supervisor the ability to:

  • Enter and approve time for the position
  • Complete performance appraisals for the position

  • Enter and approve time for the position
