FMS 224 Hands-On Training Forum

Classification Transactions and Accountability (CTA) On-line Tutorial formerly Partial FMS 224 Updated November 2010.

The Classification Transactions and Accountability (CTA) On-line Tutorial has been updated as of November 2010 to reflect some changes to the New Transactions section. The following changes were made:

  • Save Icon
    You will now notice two Save options: Save Icon (floppy disk) and a Save Incomplete button. The video will explain the difference in the two save options.

  • Locking of Transactions
    To protect transactions from being updated simultaneously, the system will lock a transaction for 15 minutes or until action is taken. The video will explain how this will impact your transaction and how to properly close a transaction.
