The subscriptions feature enables your organization’s Fundriver Client Administrators to automatically send reports to Department Users (subscribers). The Client Administrator in the main application triggers the reports to run when the results for the posting period are finalized. The Department Users receive an email notifying them each time new reports become available to which they are subscribed to. Depending on the report, the results are filtered using the Department Module criteria.


Only Client Administrators (not Department Users) can activate the report subscription. During the Department User set up process, there is an option on the ACCESS SETTINGS screen to "Allow Users to Subscribe to Reports." This box must be checked before Department Users will have access to report subscriptions. Once activated, a Department User can choose to subscribe to reports they choose or the Client Administrator can set up the subscriptions for the Department Users.


Please note that only Department Module subscribers have access to the Report Subscription feature.




1. The first step for managing Department User REPORT SUBSCRIPTIONS is making sure your database settings have the feature activated. Navigate to DEPARTMENT USERS > ACCESS SETTINGS and make sure ALLOW USERS TO SUBSCRIBE TO REPORTS box is checked.

2. If, as a Client Administrator, you would like to assign report subscriptions to your Department Users, you can do so in the REPORT tab. Navigate to the report you would like to add (for one or multiple users) and click the SUBSCRIBE button.

  • Email Note:  This is the note that will appear in the system-generated email to the Department User (required).

  • Report Frequency:  How often would you like to the Department User to receive this report?

  • Reporting Period:  What reporting period would you like the Department User to see for this report? Would you prefer they see each month separately (Monthly), the most recent 3 months (Quarterly), the Calendar Year, Fiscal Year to Date, or Month to Date?

  • Format:  Would your Department Users like this report in PDF, Excel, or Word?

  • Select Month:  If you selected Month to Date as the Reporting Period, this tells the system what month to use at the starting month.  


4. Highlight the names of the Department Users you would like to have access to this report and then click on the arrow between the boxes to move the names to the USERS SUBSCRIBED box. Click SAVE.

Repeat the steps above for all reports you would like to have available to subscribers. If you aren't sure which reports you would like made available, you can easily add others at a later time.




4.1. Department Users themselves can also choose to receive a report subscription.




The instructions in the New Department Module Department User Guide below gives instructions for the Department Users to set their own subscriptions.  https://fundriver.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360029038272--NEW-Department-Module-Department-User-Guide





5. Once a period is closed, verify and update the available periods on the department site via the main application if you are limiting the report dates available to the Department Users. Navigate to Department Users > Reports (tab) and update the Ending Period to the most recently closed period. Click Save.
