Working with Lists - AMT is all about lists. Lists of people, lists of groups, lists of commitments, etc. These articles and videos cover core AMT features for how to manipulate and work with lists.

Working with People - The AMT People component brings together a comprehensive list of all personnel (DOF, HR, Graduate Students, Undergrads, DCU/Guests and others) and additional Person Record information about them.  These articles and videos show you how to assemble and work with your people.

Working with Groups - AMT Groups are created and maintained by each department using the personnel information imported nightly into AMT.  Read these articles to understand the basics of creating and working with AMT Groups.  

Working with Commitments - The AMT Commitment component provides the ability to create and track funding commitments within and across departments. The video and workbook below help you in getting started working with this AMT component.

Working with Faculty Projections - The AMT Faculty Projections component provides the ability to create financial and staffing projections for a faculty member (PI) or members (Co-PIs).  Prime Financial and Labor Accounting Actuals (revenue and expenses) are imported and presented in each projection. .

Running Reports - AMT provides a variety of reports providing information not easily presented in lists.  This article documents how to run one such report. All reports follow the same procedures to run.
