Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I change the program a Project/Grant is mapped to?
You would complete the eForm.
- When will my non-sponsored Project/Grant be available in the ChartField Converter?
Generally, new Project/Grants will be available in the ChartField converter within 2 days after the completed request is processed in MPathways.
- What do I need to do to inactivate a Project/Grant and ShortCode?
The Project/Grant balance must be zero at the fund, department and program level before it can be inactivated. Please prepare the necessary journal entries before submitting the inactivation request.
- What is the difference between a ShortCode and an Account code?
An account code is a 6 digit code used to classify the type of revenue and expense that posts to your ChartFields. Accounts on an SOA (Statement of Activity) are separated out by revenues and expenses. A ShortCode is a 6 digit code used to identify a group of ChartFields. ShortCodes are mapped to a fund, department, program, project/grant and class specific.
