NextGen Trustee Reports This class will review NextGen Trustee reports and how to run them. We will cover which reports are best suited for various needs and how to properly run those reports. Additionally, we will look at the benefits of creating and using Report Templates and Report Packages.
Trustee/Financial Management Reports The Trustee “GL” reports are found under Financial Management – Reporting – Reports (with exception of the RDB report which is found under Trustee, Reporting, Reports) From the Reports Search screen, click “Find” for a list of reports. You can also type the name or first few letters of the name of the report you are looking for to narrow your search results. Double click on the report you need to open it.
Trial Balance & Balance Sheet It is very important that you run a Trial Balance or Balance Sheet regularly to check balances To run the Trial Balance Report, select it from the reports search screen Choose the LGC Trial Balance Filter Template, the Fiscal Year, and the Thru Period Check the box for “999 – County Trustee” in the Account Controls Box NOTE: You should normally only have one filter template for the Trial Balance and Balance Sheet reports and those should already be set up for you Click “Next” to run the report A “Filter Template” is a template that has report criteria saved in it. When a filter template is selected, the saved criteria is loaded in for you, making the report quicker and easier to run. If desired, you can have multiple filter templates saved for a report.
Trial Balance & Balance Sheet Check your balances, paying close attention to your Cash On Hand balance and balances in the refund and undistributed taxes accounts. You should always make sure the fund is in balance by checking the Fund Totals Ending Balance. This should always be zero.
The Balance Sheet is ran with the same criteria as the Trial Balance The Fund Totals line should always show a balance of zero Trial Balance & Balance Sheet
Account Analysis Reports There are three standard Account Analysis Reports: Account Analysis, Account Analysis By Department, and Account Analysis By Department with Beginning & Ending Balances Select the Account Analysis Report you want to run, choose the filter template and other report criteria as needed on the General Tab. You can enter a specific account number or account number range in the From and Thru GL account number fields. When entering a full account number in the From and Thru Account fields, you do not have to select the Account Control Code. Click “Next” to generate the report when finished selecting the report criteria
Account Analysis Reports You can leave the account number range blank on the General tab and select accounts to include in the report on the Account Segments tab. For example, if you want to select specific functions to include in the report, click on the Function Segment Description and then select the function codes you want to include in the report. You can also select any other account segments you would like by clicking on the Account Segment and then selecting the codes for the segment to include.
In most instances, you will not need to go to the Advanced tab for Account Analysis reports as long as you chose a report template that already had the standard “Advanced” criteria set up. One exception would be if you are running the account analysis and only want specific transaction types included in the report. Account Analysis Reports
After you have selected the accounts to include in your report, you can save a filter template for use the next time you need to run an Account Analysis with the same report criteria. To do this, go to the General Tab and click on the ellipsis in the Filter Template field and choose “Add New Report Filter”. Enter a Name and Description for the Filter Template. Click “Save and Close” in the ribbon bar to save the template. Note: When adding a new filter template or saving changes to an existing template, it is a good idea to not have the Fiscal Year and the periods selected since you will likely use the template across many fiscal years and periods.
Account Analysis Reports After saving a report template, the system takes you back to the report criteria screen where you only need to select the Fiscal Year, Period any specific date range needed before running the report. Click “Next” to run the report Account Analysis Report – This report does not include the source code (more detailed transaction information)
Account Analysis by Department – Contains the source code Account Analysis by Department with Beginning and Ending Balances – contains the source code summarized by date Account Analysis Reports The Beginning and Ending Balances are on both reports, with the AA by Dept with Beginning & Ending Balances listing those at the bottom.
Account Analysis Reports Total 886.00 Taking a closer look at the Account Analysis by Department Reports Account Analysis by Department There are 3 separate transaction lines listed for the account on 1/19, one for each receipt to the account for the day Account Analysis by Department w/Beginning & Ending Balances There is only one transaction line listed for the 3 receipts to the account on 1/19 on this report
Department Report – End of Month Select the Department Report from the report search screen Choose the Department Report Template Select the Fiscal Year and Thru Period Select the Account Control Code Click “Next” to run the report If you would like to run the report for specific departments, go to the “Account Segments” tab Click on “Department” in the Account Segments box Click on the checkbox in the Chart of Accounts title bar to remove the selection for all departments Select the Department(s) to include in the report
Department Report – End of Month The Department Report lists the account numbers, beginning balance, total debits and credits for the period, and the ending balance

Select the desired template Select the fiscal year, period and any other desired criteria on the General tab You can select any specific account segments needed on the Account Segments tab If you want to select the transaction types to include in the report, you can do that from the Advanced Tab Click “Next” to run the report

Trustee’s Report – Month To Date Select the filter template for the report, the period information and select the account control
Click on the Account Segments tab to select departments to include in the report The standard filter template for this report should have all departments selected Trustee’s Report – Month To Date Note: If you need to run any Month To Date Trustee’s report with only certain departments on a regular basis, it would be a good idea to save a filter template with those departments selected
Trustee’s Report – Month To Date Example of the Month to Date Trustee’s Report
Trustee’s Report – Year to Date The Year to Date Trustee’s Report is ran the same way as the Month To Date report with exception of the “From Period”. When running the YTD Trustee’s Report, you should always select the first month of the Fiscal Year (July) as the “From Period”.

Trustee Audit Report The Trustee Audit Report is a detailed report of changes to property tax records You can choose to run the report for Specific Audit Actions (Update, Insert, Delete) or for all
Trustee Transaction Audit Report The Trustee Transaction Audit Report is like the Summary Audit Net Change Report you would have ran in FlexGen You should compare the net changes on this report to the total increases and decreases on the Aggregate Reports
Property Tax Paid & Unpaid Report The Property Tax Paid & Unpaid Report can be ran for specific tax types or for all An example of when you might run this report would be if you needed a listing of all Rollback taxes for the year with paid and unpaid totals Select the tax year, property type, and use Taxing Entity of County (Unless you collect property taxes for a city) After you select the Taxing Entity, the tax types come up where you can select the types to include in the report

Property Tax Roll Report The Property Tax Roll Report can be ran by tax year, property type, paid/unpaid/all, and by receipt number range or Parcel range This is a good report to run to for a summarized listing of your tax roll and for comparing totals to the tax aggregate report

Tax Aggregate Report by Tax Type Select the Tax Year and enter the Thru Transaction Date for the Report Select to Include Clerk & Master Payments if required Select the Tax Types to include in the report In this example, we ran the Tax Aggregate by Type Report for Rollback Tax only If checking aggregate totals by tax type, you can compare these totals with the Property Tax Paid & Unpaid Report since it has taxes listed by tax type with totals
Receipt Listing Reports If you do a search for reports, entering “Receipt List” in the search name field, the results returned will be the receipt listing reports You may run many of these reports on a daily basis The criteria for all of the Receipt Listing Reports is the same You can select a tax year or leave it as “None” for all tax years Enter the receipt date range for the report Select receipt type (Property, Miscellaneous, or All)
