Article summary

From either the global or client level, the Claims Index allows you to view all claims in one place.

Global Claims Index

To get a global view of all claims on your MainEvent site, the best place to start is the Global Claims Index. So let’s find out how to get there, shall we?

You begin this journey as you begin most any on MainEvent, at the navigation menu. Click Claims in the global navigation menu and select Claims Index.

This will bring you to the Global Claims Index. For more information about index pages and their functionality, please check out our article here.

The claims index will, as we’ve now stated three times, display all your claims. But what details can you glean about those claims? The default columns are: Payroll ID, Month, Quarter, Event, Event Date. Expense Date, Payee, Status, Receipt, Location Name, Program, Region, Units, Unit Rate, Amount, Agency Fee Percentage, Amount with Fee, Pay Date, Payroll Period End Date, Category, Type, Submission Time, Attestation Time, Approver, Claim Comments, Pay Department Comments, Approved Note, Declined Note, Claim Description, Parent Chain, Chain, Street Address 1, City, State/Province, Postal Code, Supervisor, Hours Variance, Vendor Name, No Receipt Explanation, Transaction Date, and Route Segment.

If that’s not enough info for you straight out of the box, there are also the following options to add in if you need them: Claim ID, Payee Last Name, Position Type, Event ID, Approved Time, Processed Time, and Exception.

So, that’s a lot of information. Let’s break it down.
