Reminder of Dates


The Reminder of Dates report provides the ability for Unit Administrators to view important, non-confidential, administrative dates for the past, present, and future of an employee. It allows Unit Administrators to stay up-to-date with particular actions that are scheduled/need to occur for an employee based on a specific date. This report can be run for one employee, several employees, or an entire organizational unit.  In addition to viewing the important dates for an employee, the report provides functionality to filter the returned results to only display organizational or person specific data. This report includes 11 date types.
