Cornerstone is excited to announce the iBank New Reporting Workspace, which is being rolled out gradually between now and November. As we have noted before, iBank’s previous Reporting Workspace was based on Adobe Flash technology. As Adobe Flash gets discontinued on December 31st, 2020, we have redeveloped and redesigned our iBank interface to no longer rely on Adobe Flash.
We have compiled information for you to help ease this transition below. Please reference the Changelog and also the FAQs listed if you have any questions about the new Reporting Workspace.
Below also is a list of known issues that have been reported and that we are currently working on.
We are going to be updating this page frequently as the rollout progresses, so make sure to check back with any new questions that you may have.
If your questions are not answered on this page, Please contact Support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (812) 330-4361.
iBank- Changes to the Reporting Workspace User Guide
CHANGES TO THE NEW REPORTING WORKSPACE INCLUDE:
- In Flash, there was an Open Menu pop-up to navigate between the Standard, Custom, Saved Filters, and Broadcasts. Now, on the iBank Home page there is one bar that users can click to the different pages.
- In Flash when users wanted to run a report, you would first have to click on the report name and then choose report filters. Now, when users click on the name of a report or saved filter, they are taken to the Report Filters page. Users can still get more information about the report or run the report with the default filters by clicking on the ellipsis button next to the name of the report.
- The Report Settings and Available Filters are now on the same side of the page.
- Before, on the Report Filters page there was a show all button that would display all the available non-advanced filters for a report. In the new Reporting Workspace, we don’t have this option implemented yet, but we are working to get this back to show the top filters.
- Searchable filters that have a lookup table in iBank (e.g. Account Number filter) now have a search pop-up screen to search for values.
- The Specify UDID/Comments to Include option was renamed to UDIDS.
- In Flash, we had “?” tooltips for various options to give users more information about a function. For a cleaner Reporting Workspace, we removed these tool tips, but we are learning how to better integrate these. If there are tool tips you found very useful, please let us know.
- In Flash, there was a delete and edit option on the main Broadcast page. Now, users can click once on the Broadcast report to open the edit page and use the delete button there.
- Now, when copying Broadcasts there will be a pop-up screen after clicking copy where you can name the copied Broadcast.
- For Site Administrators, we now have a Data Load Monitor tool that will replace the Travets Data Load Desk.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I DO NOT SEE THE NEW REPORTING WORKSPACE OPTION?
Please confirm you are using the iBank v5 site URL: https://apps.ciswired.com/?AGENCY_CODE. If not, replace ‘AGENCY_CODE’ with your agency code which can be found in the URL you were using. Once you have logged in and can access the New Reporting Workspace, please update any bookmarks you have pointing to the old site URL. This is not a new URL for the New Reporting Workspace, but this is a newer URL that was communicated several years ago during the transition from iBank v4 to v5. The URL with ‘ibanksystems’ is the one we are trying to move away from and will soon be disabled.
