SplashBI information page
SplashBI is the tool used to access reports from Oracle Financials. Details of these reports are available in the Reports Library.
In addition to accessing standard reports via the SplashBI homepage, an Excel add-in is available to download via the SplashBI Home Page (the landing page when you log into SplashBI), giving access to two areas of functionality depending on user access:
- SplashXL – enables users to access reports from within Microsoft Excel, providing better options for modifying, scheduling, and distributing.
- SplashGL – enables users to access Templated Financial Reports (TFRs), and to set up their own GL report templates.
Workbooks – these are the replacements for FSG reports, and are known as Templated Financial Reports (TFRs). Instructions are included with each report on how to complete the parameters. Do save a local copy if preferred – any updates to these workbooks will be communicated in the usual way. They can also be downloaded from the online Reports Library if you experience any issues.
Bursting – this enables the creation of a tab for each cost centre (it works similarly to content sets for these replacements to FSG). Run and save a copy of the report for the parent cost centre (or other parent segment, as appropriate) and then use the Bursting option to produce a tab for each cost centre. Please review the training materials before using for the first time.
Distribution – this works similarly to Bursting but can be set up to distribute some or all of the generated tabs out by email. Again, run and save a copy of the report for the parent cost centre (or other parent segment, as appropriate) and then use this option to burst and distribute. Please review the training materials before using for the first time. We recommend at this point in time that you only distribute reports at cost centre level.
Reports – these can be used as a simpler option for the FSG replacements but neither Bursting nor Distribution is available for this option.
Please note: For TFRs, data is not updated immediately when posting journals. The balances will be updated each morning and at 12:30.
