Discretionary Report Data Entry
Users can enter data in the form by selecting a field with their mouse. Once you are selected on a field you can use the tab button to navigate to the next field, row, etc.
Note that the business logic for the Discretionary stipulates that for any given line the Values Subject to must be greater than the Values Deducted for. If a user attempts to complete the form and this business rule is not met, the user will be presented with a message indicating that they need to correct the data.
To view reports showing the information that has been entered into the app, select the grey Reports button above the data table, on the right side. Selecting the button will enable a pick-list displaying the available reports. The Discretionary Report form has two primary reports:
- Data Report (Excel): A tabular report containing the Discretionary Form information
- Report (PDF): A report that looks similar to the interface in PDF format
Once you have successfully completed your form, the status will change to "Certification Pending". Prior to completing the Certification Task, users can "reset" a completed form to make any needed corrections. To reset a completed form, select the grey Reset Complete button (as shown below). The form will become editable (and will subsequently require completion to be submitted).
