Drilldown to trip information for a specific coding block is also available.

The FM-Travel Integration Report is comprised of two linked Webi reports: (1) the Summary Report and the (2) Posting Details. The summary contains budget-related information and overall trip amounts, while the posting details show itemized trip data.

The report is available in the Umoja BI Portal: Umoja BI/Finance/Funds Management/Travel/FM and Travel Integration Report. An overview of the report, including its main purpose, enterprise roles and relevant screen shots can be found in the Umoja Reporting Page, under Funds Management and Travel Integration Report.
