AR/BI2 Billing Advanced Class Scheduled

The AR/BI2 Billing Advanced course previously scheduled on January 14, 2015, has been rescheduled to below date. (This change was necessary because new carpeting is being installed in the Columbine Room on January 14th.)

The AR/BI2 Billing Advanced course provides hands-on training on how to use the SWIFT system to enter and manage billing information. Participants will learn how to use the standard entry process to enter bills online in SWIFT. They will learn time-saving ways to create bills using the Copy Bill and Copy Bill Group processes. They will also create, schedule, and process recurring bills. Participants will learn how to generate invoices for non-consolidated bills and troubleshoot the Single Action Invoice process. They will also learn how to create credit bills.
Session: January 21, 2015
Time: 8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Where: Centennial Building, Columbine Room
Registration: Register for this classroom training through the Learning folder in Employee Self-Service. We plan to offer this class monthly. Additional session dates will be added in the near future.
