This is for the third time that we are holding a “How an 043-Form and an approved budget work in the Rise system”. This training course is practical and relevant for Schools that work with the 043-Form and an approved budget. It is based on the Rise Team's practical expertise of working with various schools and applying schools' specifics related to 043-form and the budget process in the Rise system.
It is a one-day course that connects Chart of Accounts, 043-form report, the budget, Budget Planned vs Actual in a practical way. Bursars will be empowered to get a good understanding of how the 043-Form and Budget get applied in RSM, starting with the first building block - Chart of Accounts.
You will be able to see the Rise system in action by uploading a Chart of Accounts, creating 043-entries and mapping them, creating the Budget, pulling Budget Planned vs. Actual, assigning transactions and tracking the movement in the financial reports. We will also go through the possible mistakes that can arise and reflect in the 043-Form. We will look at the ways of avoiding and rectifying them.
Below is an action plan of the upcoming course:
1. You will modify a Chart of Accounts (COA) template and upload it into the system.
2. You will create 043-Form entries and keep track of their order.
3. You will map each account from the COA to the 043-Form.
4. You will create the budget in the Rise system.
5. You will allocate income and expense transactions in the Bank Stream with an immediate reflection in the 043-Form.
6. You will learn of the possible mistakes that can arise and reflect in the 043-Form and ways of avoiding and rectifying them.

More feedback from Michelle: "Thank you for the training. It was really a value add and very insightful. It was nice to engage with other Bursars that go through similar pains, struggles and joys. I felt good in a sense that sure oh yeah I know a bit more because of the challenges we had. I could add more value in that way. That was phenomenal. Thank you so much for encouraging me to join. The exciting part is that this specific training and all the documents used, the live infobase are still available because I would then use that now in this week and then use the same training to enlighten Clariska and Simone so that they also understand it. And that is awesome because me using this infobase and demonstrating will also speak and address my competency. Thank you for this opportunity." Here is Michelle's feedback in an audio format. Sharing this feedback with Michelle's permission.
