Access to Business Objects
Business Objects has been implemented to be the University standard reporting tool. It has been made available to end users for reporting from Compel since 2004.
Staff can be given access to Business Objects by completing an application form which can be downloaded from this page. Please complete the form and return either via email (scanned and signed copy) to People@cardiff.ac.uk or via internal post to HR People Services.
All applications must be signed by the Head of School or authorised signatory.
There are a number of reports that can be run on staff data and full details can be obtained by opening the attached file in the Resources section, where useful information for users is also available.
The initial Business Objects training course can be undertaken by staff in their own time by working through an Introduction to Business Objects Training Booklet. This booklet is made available to all new users via the Resources section of this page. You may request further training after working through the Training Booklets.
Business Objects Statistical Reporting Instructions have been created to provide both summarised and detailed management information from the HR system, to Academic Schools and Administrative Divisions. These are available to view in two booklets via the Resources section of this page.
If you have any queries with your account access please email People@cardiff.ac.uk or telephone on extension 79777.
