Financial Detail Transactions is a data group that can pull a detailed record of all financial transactions housed in the general ledger (GL). Every financial transaction generated by a unit is recorded in the GL through a journal entry. This report provides the most-granular view of what makes up the financial statement balances and helps management prepare accurate and organized financial statements.

How Financial Detail Transactions Works

Financial Detail Transactions is designed to display the journal entry used to record each transaction and includes more information about the transaction such as date, amount, description of the entry, and a document reference number. Entries are created from Kuali Financial System (KFS) documents (i.e. General Accounting Adjustment (GAA) edoc), transactions from external systems (i.e. Student Information System (SIS)), or created during batch processing (i.e. Payroll).

It is important to note that KFS is updated in an overnight batch process occurring after 10 p.m. Transactions are not viewable in real-time but will be displayed one day after document is in final status or batch process has occurred.
