New users just starting to use M-Forecasting will need to manually copy the forecasting.xls file from the UMMS-Budget volume. Instructions for connection to UMMS-Budget can be found on the Budget File Server page.
Once the volume is mounted, use the following instructions to locate the forecasting.xls file:
- Open the Memos and Instructions folder.
- Open the Budget Information folder.
- Open the Current Year FY11 folder.
- Open the FY 2011 Budget-Forecast Info folder.
- Open the M-Forecasting folder.
- Copy the forecasting.xls file to the computer desktop.
In most instances, after the first manual copy, the forecasting file should be able to update itself.
