About Expense Trends Analysis

Expense Trends Analysis (ETA) is designed specifically for individuals who want to look at summarized expense data over time. Its goal is to be easier than writing your own reports. ETA moves beyond reports to provide analysis. This means you don’t have to start with a specific question. You may have a question to begin with, but what you really want is to learn about your expenses and analyze the data. This product is not intended to provide a level of detail useful for reconciliation or transaction listings. Although that is valuable information, reconciliation activities should be performed utilizing the university’s standard financial transaction listings. Rather, this product is intended to help users identify expense trends and outliers through the use of summarized data.
