Account Code Favourites

Code Favourites allow Requisitioners to save different sets of accounting codes frequently used in combination with one another. Users who buy for different departments, projects, or who split purchases across different codes can store these combinations and quickly select them during checkout. Code Favourites can also be split among multiple funding sources.

To setup a Code Favourite in your User Profile:

  1. Click on your name in the top navigation bar, then select View My Profile. From the left menu, go to: Default User Settings > Custom Field and Accounting Code Defaults. Click on the Code Favourites tab.
  2. Click the Add button above the Account Code Assignment section.
  3. Enter a nickname that is recognizable (e.g. Office Supplies). This is important if you will be using more than one Account Code Favourite. Select the Default checkbox if this will be your default. Enter the appropriate values in each field.
  • Users with the Basic Requisitioner role have the option to choose Funds Centers from a list assigned to their profile. Click Select from profile values, and choose the Funds Center from the drop down menu. If the Funds Center is not on the list, have your department key contact submit a request to the uSOURCE Help Desk.
  1. Click Save.

Note: The Fund field cannot be left blank. If there is no Fund, enter 0-None. Also, under normal circumstances, you should not set custom favourites for the Commitment Item Override field. For each purchase, uSOURCE will propose appropriate codes.
