Budget Plan Trainings
All users should watch the Budget Plan Refresher video. Specific examples like setting department favorites, seeding, transfer, etc are shown in the second half of the video, so users who need more detailed examples can watch there. To supplement this learning video, we will be holding two open lab sessions each week, so users can ask questions about learning or get specific budgeting help from the UBO trainer and liaisons.
