Tip #226: Empower User Question: Viewing Signed Off Results with View Filter in Empower
In this week’s tip, we will answer an Empower user question regarding determining which Results have been Signed Off.
Q: How can I see if a Result has been Signed Off?
Let’s get started.
An easy way of knowing if a result has been Signed Off is to create a ‘View Filter’ which includes the ‘Number of Sign Offs’ field (figure 1).
Create an informative View Filter on the Sign Offs tab, click ‘Edit View’ (figure 2).
Add the following fields: ‘Sign Off Reason,’ ‘Number of Sign Offs,’ and ‘Processing Locked’ (figure 3).
In this example, both ‘Sign Off Level 1’ and ‘Sign Off Level 2’, neither are locked (figure 4).
If your Sign Off was completed using an ‘Individual Report’ Method, right click on a Result, select ‘View As, Sign Offs’ and only the Sign Offs associated with that Result will be displayed (figure 5).
If your Sign Off that was completed using a ‘Summary Report’ method, right click on a Result, select ‘View As, Sign Offs’ and the ‘Results Signed Off’ in the Summary Report will be displayed (figure 6).
You can create a View Filter to specifically display either ‘Sign Off Level 1’ or ‘Sign Off Level 2’ by adding a condition in the ‘Sign Off Reason’ field (figure 7).
The Sign Off table now displays all Results with a ‘Sign Off Level 2’ (figure 8).
It’s that easy!
