Log on to Mobius View and View the Reports

Mobius View is an application that replicates the static month-end reports and allows you to quickly access copies of month-end reports that are ready to print or download. These reports are indexed by Organization code. Because they are static, the response time to view them is minimal, as the data has previously been retrieved and formatted. However, you will not have the option to further refine or expand the report using other parameters.

Unit personnel with HR/Payroll responsibilities who are granted a Unit User Security Profile are granted access to the two Payroll Expense by Person reports. If you need to request these security profiles, contact your Unit Security Contact (USC). For more information, please check the AITS website: Get Access to Enterprise Applications. If you need access to Mobius View only, send your request by e-mail to RMSADMIN@uillinois.edu.

The Payroll Expense by Person Reports

The Payroll Expense by Person reports lists payroll labor distributions by Account code and allow units to view details that correspond to the charges posted to their departmental C-FOAPALs in Banner. There are two different Payroll Expense by Person reports available based on timeframes: Pay Period and Month End. The Pay Period Statement runs after each bi-weekly and monthly payroll calculation and is available in Mobius View three days before the pay date.

Each report contains all payroll activity since the previous pay period report, including original pay, adjustments, and redistributions (earnings transfers). By reviewing the Pay Period statement, units can verify if employees will be paid properly. The Month End statement runs after each Finance month-end closing. It includes all the payroll activity that posted to Finance during that particular month. Units may use these reports to reconcile labor distributions on their C-FOAPALs and to assist in the management of departmental funds.
