Effort Detail Tab

The Effort Detail tab allows you to specify the details of the effort certification report to be created. It also displays the current effort distribution after the appropriate data has been retrieved. To select the report to be displayed, complete the fields in the Retrieve Data section and click the load button. The system then displays the current effort distribution from the Labor Ledger for the employee in the Effort Detail Lines section along with the fiscal year and report number.

Click this button to generate effort detail lines for the values you've entered in this section. KFS then queries the Labor Ledger and retrieves and summarizes the data as it normally does when effort reports are created. Effort distribution lines display in the Effort Details section. If no values match the criteria you've entered, an error message is displayed.

The Effort Details section displays retrieved effort distribution lines from the Labor Ledger and allows further inquiry on the displayed values. As this information is built using existing ledger entries, you cannot edit these values until the effort report itself has been created.
