Director Finance Dashboard Released

Directors,
A new Director Finance Dashboard has been launched on DC2.USSSA.com.  This Dashboard is where you will view and track all of your financial transactions with the National Office.
This tool will be found under [Financial Mgmt] on the DC2 menu.  It is called “Director Finance Dashboard”.  It can also be found at this URL:  http://dc2.usssa.com/#/dailyTransactions
The primary focus of this tool is to transition from an invoicing system of tracking to a real-time transaction management tool. This feature allows all transactions to be compiled in one location.  Allowing a director to have one balance with USSSA and manage all transactions within this singular tool.
To accomplish this, every transaction that can occur involving a director is collected into one dashboard.  The result of this is a running balance that will give directors an up-to-date balance of what is either owed to them from HQ or they owe HQ.
Items Included:
  • Team Registrations
  • Officials Registrations
  • Event Sanction Fees
  • Insurance Purchases
  • Payment to and from USSSA HQ
  • Miscellaneous charges and adjustments

Local/Area/Tournament Directors
For Local/Area/Tournament Directors, this tool will not include anything that you are billed from a State Director/Regional Money Person.  For those transactions you will be responsible to them for items billed.
Verifying Transactions/Dispute Transactions & Problems/Questions
As a director be sure to go through this transaction history thoroughly and verify that the transactions listed to your account are accurate.  If there are discrepancies in your transactions, there is a button that you can push to detail the discrepancy and will communicate to HQ regarding this particular issue.
For anything not handled through the Dispute Resolution tool or for general inquiries, there will be a feedback button on the top left of the screen that says “Daily Trans Feedback/Support”.  Please post all inquiries in there so we have a way to organize and communicate issues and solutions back to you.

Director Finances Project Update Create Teams Module

Director Finances Project Update – Create Teams Module

As part of the Director Finances Project there are multiple components that have to be rebuilt to support the change in processes.  One of these tools is the Create Teams Module and the Import Teams Module.
These two modules have been rewritten to provide a new interface with enhanced tools to increase efficiency below you will find information regarding these tools.
To Create Teams, you will need to go to DC2.usssa.com and it can be found under the [Team Mgmt] menu.
Create Teams (Traditional Type In Mechanism)
To Create Teams, pull up the Create Teams tab and begin to type in the data on the table.  There have been a few new features included on this module:
  • MANAGER ID:  A field has been added for Manager ID.  In the event you know the Manager ID, you can insert it into this field and the system will automatically populate all data from that Manager, and not require you to type it all in.
  • COPY DOWN BUTTON:  The buttons beside each field allow the user to copy data down from that point.  In the event you have a long series of the same data, it will allow you to copy down the rows from that point on (old system only allowed copy first row).
Import Teams
To Import Teams from a template, complete your import template first and then go to the Import Teams tab to import the data.  Below you will find some instructions as to how to import teams into this system.  ​
